"Tom Waits is one of of my all-time favorites and he is a great collaborator," Clinch says. "He always brings something to the table and he's always given the shoot a lot of thought. We were out in Northern California and he had me meet him at this side-of-the-road flea market/dive bar type of place. It was fantastic. He showed up with a truckload of old speakers and radios and anything that had a speaker, cassette decks and boom boxes. We spent the morning drinking coffee and putting this together into what looked like a big sound system of sorts that only Tom Waits can play through.
"We started shooting pictures and he said to me, 'Ah man, it's too bad nobody has a video camera. This would be a great place to do a video.' I said, 'Well, I've got my 35mm Nikon here. I'll put the thing on Motor Drive. We'll play the tune and you can rock out and we'll cut something together. It's gonna be fucked up and rough and tumble.' He was like, 'Great.' This is a still from the video called 'Lie to Me.'"
