Wall Of Voodoo's Mexican Radio

In 1982, Wall Of Voodoo released a song called "Mexican Radio."

It had a sound like no other song of the 80's. The very strange and haunting voice of lead singer, Stan Ridgway, combined with the wierd, yet very creative lyrics, makes the song sound ten years ahead of its time.

Mexican Radio recieved considerable play, both on air and MTV. The line "I wish I was in Tiajuana eating barbecued iguana" is considered the work of pure genius.

"Mexican Radio" became Wall Of Voodoo's most successful work. Stan Ridgway left the band in the early 80's to work on his own projects.

The rest of the band continued on, releasing several underground albums, and still keeping the "Wall Of Voodoo" name.
