This is 3 Tom Waits covers that my old band, The Minor Arcana, recorded with Mischief Brew frontman Erik Petersen. They were shelved because shortly after they were recorded I, Matthew, had two strokes and was hospitalized. Earlier this week, after new of Erik's tragic death came down, I dusted these off, had Jeff Hiatt over at Turtle Studios polish them up and what not and decided to release them WITH ALL PROCEEDS GOING TO THE GOFUNDME SET UP IN ERIK'S MEMORY (www.gofundme.com/mischiefbrewfund
). Because of that, I am encouraging you all to please donate more if you are able.
