"This is "Bad As Me" by Tom Waits remixed track for track (in two and a half weeks time) by Big Pauper (Circle Into Square, Folktek) on some serious blowing-off-steam lighthearted i-wanna-feel-good-n-have-fun beat tape shit. This album was a creative exercise in rapid fire beat construction. While the two and a half weeks it took Pauper to create this isn't exactly light speed, it sure beats the seven year duration it took him to complete the "Beyond My Means" LP.
Remixes were constructed using the original songs, other Tom Waits material, a recent Tom Waits interview on NPR, 60's japanese gangster flicks, the occasional czech new wave flick, a bunch of instruments & a couple of stacks of records/tapes.
Short n' sweet, this record was created with nothing but the utmost respect for Mister Tom Waits & all sampled artists. It is unauthorized & unaffiliated with Anti Records.
Now BUY "Bad As Me" at http://www.anti.com/ .. and love that shit.Tom is back!!" ..-Big Pauper
