Ekhi Lopetegi from Delorean on Basque and Texas Barbecue

Hailing from the autonomous Basque region of Spain and named for the featured vehicle in Back to the Future, Delorean are a dance-friendly foursome with an ever-growing fan base. The band's good fortune began a few years back when the members agreed to move in a more electronic direction. Since then, Delorean have made many year-end top 10 lists and seem on the verge of bigger things.

Speaking on the road between Alabama and New Orleans and in anticipation of Saturday's show at Dada, lead singer Ekhi Lopetegi talked with DC9 about learning English, working with computers and yearning for some Texas barbecue.
