Stan Ridgway's Camoflauge is 25?!

Scruffy recently received a missive from Stan Ridgway informing me that Camoflauge, the single from his first solo album that somehow became a hit in Europe, is now 25 years old. Guess that means that the album, The Big Heat, is a quarter-century young too. Still one of Scruffy's favourites ever. A new item in Ridgway's shop is Live in Byron Bay Australia 1987, recorded on The Big Heat Tour, and boy, does it sound amazing. Below are vids of a few of the original tracks from Scruff's desert album disc.

If you forgot, Stan's the man who fronted Wall of Voodoo, who unleashed this serious song upon the world.

Leave a comment, it will bring you good luck. Scruffy will even endeavour to reply.
