Biografia

Ridgway embarked on a solo career in 1983, shortly after Wall of Voodoo’s appearance and break up at the US Festival that same year. After collaborating on the song, “Don’t Box Me In” with Stewart Copeland from The Police for the soundtrack to Francis Ford Coppola’s Rumble Fish starring Mickey Rourke, Matt Dillon and Dennis Hopper, he released his first proper solo album, The Big Heat (1986), which included the top 5 European (and UK) hit “Camouflage”. This was followed by numerous other solo recordings: Mosquitos (1989), Partyball (1991), Black Diamond (1995), and Anatomy (1999), The Way I Feel Today (1998), a collection of big band standards (2000), and Holiday in Dirt (2001), a compilation of outtakes and previously unreleased songs. Ridgway’s most recent solo outing is Snakebite: Blacktop Ballads and Fugitive Songs (2005), featuring the narrative song, “Talkin’ Wall Of Voodoo Blues Pt. 1”, a history of his former band in song that is especially poignant, having followed the recent deaths of guitarist Marc Moreland and drummer Joe Nanini.

Since the early days of Wall of Voodoo, Ridgway has been interested in making music for the cinema. A list of films for which Ridgway has written scores and/or original songs is included below. Ridgway’s album Holiday in Dirt was a quasi-cinematic project, with the release of the album accompanied by a showing of 14 short films by various independent filmmakers, each film a visual interpretation of one of the songs on the album. A compilation DVD of the films was released in February 2005.
