100 Mavericks # 92 Stanard Ridgeway

For Mexican Radio obviously, their one immortal moment, but also for everything else he did with Wall of Voodoo. For bringing a weird particular amalgam of Film Noir, Paranoid Futurism and the Frontier Mindset into Rock and Roll. For his contribution to the Rumblefish soundtrack, for Camouflage, one of the oddest leftfield hits in the UK of the eighties. For singing/drawling out of the corner of his mouth and for forever flying the flag for individuality.
