WALL OF VOODOO POSTER

 

Wall of Voodoo was a Los Angeles new wave group whose roots can be traced back to a silver screen soundtrack company called Acme Soundtracks.  Acme Soundtracks had an office across the street from a punk club in Hollywood, and some members of a band at the club began playing with the owner of the sound studio, and low and behold, Wall of Voodoo was born.

The band released an EP in 1980, and their first studio release, Dark Continent, was released the following year.  Their most successful release of the 1980's, and since the 1980's for that matter, was the 1982 album Call of the West, which featured the song "Mexican Radio".  The video for this song met with decent airplay on the newly popular MTV.  Although they did have a few more hits in Australia in the 80's, there wasn't much in the UK or the USA.  This was partially due to shifting band members and internal turmoil within the band.

Wall of Voodoo split in the late 1980's.  In the 2000's, original founding member Stan Ridgway continued performing under the Wall of Voodoo moniker, but he was the only original member.  Although there has been some re-mastered material released since, the band was not active at the time of this writing in early 2014.  The Wall of Voodoo Discography is as follows:

  • 1980: Wall of Voodoo
