1983, Wall of Voodoo, and Mexican Radio
From the textmex obsessed imagination of William A. Nericcio
In 1983, Wall of Voodoo came out with an early MTV video classic directed by Francis Delia that helped define a generation of music video. Seen through the lens of Tex[t]-Mex, however, this incipient contribution to what became the dominant form of music marketing plays the same role Griffith's Birth of a Nation played for cinema last century. Just a thought.
See it and judge for yourself!
