I was listening to ‘Heartattack and Vine’ over the weekend. Hadn’t heard it for a while and what a fine album it is. But I was suddenly struck by the thought that Tom Waits doesn’t half sound like Popeye would if he’d ever got round to making an album. Similarly, I bought the ‘Utopian Ashes’ CD and came to the conclusion that if Mowgli from Disney’s Jungle Book ever grew up and got into music in a big way, he would definitely sound like Bobby Gillespie. Maybe some other singers remind you of cartoon figures?
