Mexican Radio nearly always comes to mind when anyone speaks of Wall Of Voodoo, a group whose music is laced with tension, a bit of nervous apprehension, even paranoia, all set to a driving synth, spurred on by the, dare I say, unique vocals of Stan Ridgway. With nearly all of the songs coming off as being absurdly spaghetti Western induced, it’s nearly impossible not to get lost in the stories of a perceived stoner underclass, eternally caught in the work-a-day wheel, where these stories unfold, championing those few who’ve managed to step off of the treadmill and out from under the boss’s.

Wall of Voodoo had its roots in Acme Soundtracks, a film score business started by Stan Ridgway, later the vocalist and harmonica player for Wall of Voodoo. Acme Soundtracks' office was across the street from the Hollywood punk club The Masque and Ridgway was soon drawn into the emerging punk/new wave scene. Marc Moreland, guitarist for The Skulls, began jamming with Ridgway at the Acme Soundtracks office and the soundtrack company morphed into a new wave band. A remastered coupling of Dark Continent and Call of the West was released by Raven Records on November 10, 2009
