Someone please clarify. This passage: "At the end of 2000, Calexico joined with two French friends Naïm Amor and Thomas Belhorn to record Tete a Tete for release at the beginning of 2001. The band released two collections of rarities during 2001. Even My Sure Things Fall Through collected outtakes from previous albums, B-sides, remixes and material previously unreleased in the US. The album also featured Mariachi Luz de Luna who frequently played live with the duo. The Aerocalexico album was sold exclusively at their gigs in 2001."

What album is the 'this album' that featured Mariachi Luz de Luna? Even My Sure Things Fall Through? Aerocalexico? Tete a Tete? Something else? I'm confused. JonathanNil 23:44, 25 March 2006 (UTC)


Videography: The article says the video for Quattro from Feast of Wire/2003 was their first one (6th column of recording history). I recall watching videos both of The Ballad of Cable Hogue and Crystal Frontier (both from Hot Rail/2000). Does anyone know if there are possibly even older ones? -Simon

There was a video for "The Black Light", see http://youtube.com/watch?v=K6r8i9SH-hQ —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.216.115.217 (talk) 16:17, 7 May 2008 (UTC)


Is there any justification for 'Calexico' diverting here rather than to the city? Marthiemoo (talk) 22:08, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

The band history section needs to be updated

In 2010, a new album of Calexico was released: the soundtrack of the documentary "Circo".

"Until recently, Calexico has been on tour with Arcade Fire along the west coast in 2010." - recently was 2 years ago
