Calexico - Interviewed


Calexico Interview Calexico front man Joey Burns Interviewed 12/02/03

Contact Music caught up with Calexico front man Joey Burns in a West End Hotel the morning after the bands triumphant gig at the Shepherds Bush Empire the night before.

Over the next twenty minutes, we learn of his desire to write more soundtracks, his aversion to working for major film companies, his satisfaction with the new album, 'Feast of Wire', and his discomfort with the alt-country/Americana label. It seems that for Calexico, the times they are a changing.


Contact Music: So how are you enjoying London then?
