Song of the Week: “The Big Heat” – Stan Ridgway

26 Aug

Wow, Stan Ridgway has released 12 solo albums, the most recent coming out just last year. Amazing talent. I know his magnificent musical stories best from his early-80s stint with Wall of Voodoo (“Mexican Radio” and “Call of the West”) and his 1986 solo album, The Big Heat. It featured this week’s tune plus the captivating “Camouflage” and “Drive, She Said.” If you like the compelling story of “The Big Heat,” definitely take a listen to his other work.
