  • Interestingly, I had never heard Mexican Radio until years after I got into Far Side of Crazy. I prefer the latter.

  • Are you saying you've not heard of Stan Ridgway [] either? His solo success is effectively what happened after Wall Of Voodoo :) Remember the clasic 'Camouflage', along with 'Calling Out to Carol', 'Don't Box Me In' and my favourite 'Can't Complain'? He's still writing and recording, although I haven't heard his more recent stuff.

  • I still have that EP, and the first two LP's (Dark Continent, Call Of The West) on vinyl. "Ring of Fire" is great...towards the end it sounds like a nightmare at a haunted house (IIRC, they started out wanting to do horror film soundtracks). The instrumental "On I-15" and the title track "Call of the West" on the 3rd album are also among my favorites. I saw them once with Stan Ridgeway (opening for The Residents) and (later) once without. Both great shows...
    • It's a very good cover, but best ever? So far, my vote goes for Devo's cover of Satisfaction. "Clearly" better than the original.

    • Interesting/memorable side note: at the above mentioned WOV/Residents concert, there was a couple that sat down in front of us after WOV was done with their set. We heard them expressing relief that although they missed the opening act, at least they got there in time for WOV. We gave them the bad news "uh, sorry...WOV was the opening act!"
