Day Dream Albums- Stan Ridgway

We are going to kick off the Day Dream Album series talking about what I would pitch to former Wall of Voodoo front man and solo artist Stan Ridgway. 

Ridgway has become one those off center singer songwriters who is more akin to Tom Waits and Warner Zevon than James Taylor. He’s always had a pulp sensibility and a affection for the classic song of the great American Song Book…

Anyway these are the tunes I would pitch:

Fast Ball- The Way

Monster Magnet - Negasonic Teenage Warhead

The Jet Black Berries - Ring of Steel

The Damned - Stranger On The Town

The Phantom Chords - Screamin' Kid

Mark Pickerel And His Praying Hands- She Sleeps Through Sirens

Scott Goddard - Cowpunk

TSOL - The Triangle

Warren Zevon - The Envoy

Roky Erickson - The Interpreter

Tall Boys - Interceptor

Hellacopters - Toys And Flavors

Concrete Blonde  - Dance Along The Edge

Suicide – Cheree
