Despite reuniting with Lynch many years later to appear as one of Twin Peaks: The Return‘s Bang Bang Bar musiciansit turns out that Del Rio—how many from us– didn’t feel like she really understood the director’s work until she had a chance to visit his hometown in Montana.
During an interview with IndieWire, Del Rio explains that she first met Lynch after he recorded her singing her Spanish cover of “Crying” — written as a tribute to the late Selena — following an introduction by their mutual agent. The recording apparently “inspired [Lynch] to build the Silencio scene that would eventually launch the by then unmasked ABC pilot that would go on to become the film version of Mulholland Drive.
decades later, during the No Hay Banda Tour celebrating the film’s 20th anniversary, Del Rio eventually visited Missoula, Montana, where Lynch grew up. Del Rio said she “wanted to see where this man came from, what makes this genius tick,” and explored a city that she felt explained Lynch’s art. “It’s very low-key, conservative, and mountainous,” Del Rio says, “but there’s another side to this place that’s riddled with drugs, ramshackle buildings, and horrific desperation … all within a few miles.”
She also recalls driving around Missoula, getting lost and “ending up in a creepy warehouse, [and] Meeting a man I remembered the monster near the trash can behind Winkies…” Later, while having dinner “at a bougie restaurant,” Del Rio said she thought she was “just within the confines of the weirdest, scariest place in history.” World”.
“Now I think I know why David makes his art the way he does,” she concludes. “And I’m so glad he chose me to do some of that art with him.”
