When In Rome… with Danger Mouse, Daniele Luppi, Jack White and Norah Jones

Alan Light, Relix, May 2011


IT'S 1995, maybe 1996. Brian Burton is a freshman at the University of Georgia, an aspiring moviemaker, taking an "Introduction to Film" course. Burton has not yet borrowed the name of the British cartoon character Danger Mouse, not embarked on a career in music that will include his own groups Gnarls Barkley and Broken Bells, plus production work for Gorillaz, the Black Keys, and others, which will establish him as one of the sonic visionaries of our time.
