The Tuxedomoon Connection
Two big events today: the monthly UKMX programme board and a fundraising dinner at the National Museum of Art. But it's the little events that sometimes stand out. I had a quick lunch with Carlos Becerra in my favourite cafe in Roma. Aside from organizing concerts (he did the Mute Festival a couple of months ago), he runs an interesting label and record shop called Independent Recordings, which he co-founded with Steven Brown of Tuxedomoon (who these days lives in Oaxaca, here in Mexico). Carlos used to be their tour manager in Europe. He have me a big bunch of Mexican CDs and vinyl. Now that's what makes me happy.
