We set up all this gear and lit a piano in the centre of a room, which maybe looked too glamorous. He threw a complete paddy and demanded we shoot him at a broken down, out-of-tune upright Crazy Love - Various - Happy Together in the corner of the room.

He insisted that we just use the sound from the camera and a single light. Of course he was right--it worked brilliantly. Footage reveals "Alice" to be far more accessible than the harsh and brittle "The Black Rider", with a collection of superb songs exquisitely performed by the Thalia players. Tom Waits : " Wilson's things come out of his head. Everyone moves like Wilson moves.

He really unscrews the top of his head and takes all the characters out of it, winds 'em up. Everything on stage comes out of his head. If there's a tree, he sketched it first, and then had it blown up and drawn exactly the way he sketched it.

Untill Waits had never released anything from the "Alice" works and there were only few recorded live performances known, so for years the play remained kind of a mystery, only attended by a happy few.

The origins of these studio recordings which were never meant to be released are unknown, but it is said the tapes might have been stolen from Waits's car late Tom Waits : " When we were doing the songs, all the tapes were in my briefcase. My car was broken into and someone stole the work tapes of the show. Not a lot of money, was it? I was a little insulted.

Along the line, the tapes got copied and the bootleg got out. At the time, I wasn't interested in recording anything at all. I was taking a break from the whole damn business, so it went south. The songs sat in a box, and I thought they were worth looking at again.

One should keep Instrumental Piece 8 - Tom Waits - Alice (The Original Demos) mind that is the year when both "Night On Earth" and "Bone Machine" were released. The music for "Alice" has, as a matter of fact, a lot in common with "Night On Earth" and to a much lesser extent with "Bone Machine".

Untill Waits had never released anything from the "Alice" works. This was very remarkable, for the earlier plays: "Frank's Wild Years" and "The Black Rider" both turned into very successful studio albums.
