Wall of Voodoo: Oddballs Amok in the Melting Pot

J.D. Considine, Musician, July 1983

MARTY ROBBINS has just ridden back into El Paso to see his beloved Felina, and is met instead by a vengeful posse. The lights go down as he falls from the saddle. He rises, sees the white puff of smoke from the rifle and feels the bullet go deep in his chest, but before his beloved Felina can find him, Wall of Voodoo have taken the stage and lurch into 'Ring Of Fire'.
