Pop Will Eat Itself

On the eve of his first American tour, Brazilian cut-up artist Tom Zé talks about Tropicália and its cultural remixes

CP: Would it have been a happy death?

ZÉ: They say that when a child leaves his mother's lap, and the lap in my case was the public, the child dies, even with the best nourishment in the world. And I'm not a saint like Gandhi. I haven't learned how to die properly yet.
