Alex Chilton, live from VFW Hall, Baton Rouge on September 27th, 1985. When Tom Waits once described Alex Chilton as "the Thelonius Monk of the rhythm guitar", he was being very Tom Waits and simultaneously, both sincere and astute. The Box Top bad boy was influencing a new wave of bands in the early 1980s on the independent scene at home and in the UK. With shades of Syd Barrett and other Anglophile figures, Chilton's adoption of obscure blues, R&B, soul, and the American songbook provided an interesting and provocative return to form with 1985's Feudalist Tarts EP (1985)
