Calexico were just spellbinding. What a great band! The records are good but they really are a different proposition in the flesh. The use of trumpets and vibes was beautifully done. They made me wish that David Lynch would make a sort of Grapes of Wrath type film, with them providing the soundtrack. That would be sublime. We also enjoyed the look-a-like potential within the band. Who would have thought that Craig David and a young (but slightly chunkier) Tim Robins would provide the trumpet and vibes. Or that the pedal steel guitar would be played by the larger John from They Might Be Giants. The biggest shock however was to see that Russian premier Vladimir Putin was playing bass! How does he find the time?
