Waits and Weatherall

I am sitting here watching Warp Vision, a collection of videos by artists from the label given to me as a birthday present by someone with excellent taste, and I have just realised that the promo for Sabres of Paradise's Wilmot contains more than a passing nod to the video for Tom Waits' In the Neighborhood.

Surely Weatherall - and former Jesus and Mary Chain bassist Douglas Hart who directed the thing - are too aware of such events for this to be a coincidence. Or am I just reading too much into it?

Coincidence..I believe not!
Mr Hart is a huge fan of Tom and I'm hazarding a guess that Lord Sabre has heard a few of his tunes, might even own a couple!
