Revenge of the 80s to Premiere New Andy Prieboy Song
Written by admin on November 5, 2008
While political pundits talk about what they call an historic U.S. election, music history will be made as well this week: Andy Prieboy‘s latest song, “Shine (Red Bead Follows Blue)” will premiere on this week’s Revenge of the 80s Radio show. Prieboy had recently released four tracks to his long-awaited collection; we reviewed them here. As for the music history-making part: this song will also feature Stan Ridgway on harmonica. This marks the first time both former Wall of Voodoo frontmen performed on the same song.
Like much of Andy Prieboy’s work, the song is dynamic, fuses several genres and utilizes the music to help tell the somber story; helping the listener imagine they are in the body and surroundings of the person he sings about.

All of Prieboy’s long-awaited new work is both masterful and insightful and recommended highly by Revenge of the 80s Radio.
Prieboy will also be a guest on an upcoming Revenge of the 80s Radio Show. Ridgway appeared with us earlier this year.
