Their frying fish in Chinatown
And the wind smells of rain
My head is ticking like a bomb
On a subway train

  • You know what its like this for me I think: Wall of Voodoo was kind of a sardonic goofy band with Stan. They had songs like animal day, invisible man, you know off kilter weird stuff like that. The Priboy incarnation is a lot more straight up. Its more serious, a little more poetic, but I sometimes find it a bit trite or pretentious. Like he's one of those guys, you know. You know the ones; the I'm evil guys. Anyway, The composite effect is much different and while I think there are songs that are close to or better than some Wall of Voodoo, I don't think they have any one album that is better than Stan Voodoo at their best. 7 days, happy planet; both good albums but are they Call of the West good? Not in my opinion. Call of the West is probably one of my all time favorite albums.
  • I do like this song. I don't know if I would say they were better... I don't want to say that. I'll say this: Wall of Voodoo, post Stan, sounds more like what you would expect it to, and that's good. Stan just added such a unique quality , though and I loved the mismatchedness of it all. That said Stan is better solo. I've come to love solo Ridgway more than any WOV.

  • This was the best Wall of Voodoo song they ever created. It destroys Mexican Radio! They were better after Stan left.....
