Voluntary exiles in Europe since the early ‘80s, the American band's ability to crystallize a certain dark and romantic zeitgeist has quickly turned them into one of the most influential bands around. Tuxedomoon were futuristic and lyrical, electronic and acoustic, and used drum machines, saxophones, wailing violins and haunted vocals. “Desire” is one of their most inspired albums. This re-issue also contains their earlier, cult electro-punk hit “No Tears”.
