    Any of you guys know the song Heart Attack & Vine from the album of the same name? What's he got going on the main guitar part? Sounds kind of like a fuzz, but nothing I've ever heard quite like that before. Any ideas?

    Yeah, almost sounds like he's playing an amp that's about to fall apart! It is a great album indeed.

    Knowing Tom Waits it was probably played through an amp constructed of spent coffee grounds, a broomstick and the bucket seat out of an old mustang.

    I think that sound was got out of cranking an old silvertone 5 watter
