"REBEL KING" by Stan Ridgway / A440 Records Recorded, Mixed at GoldenTone Studios Venice CA March 2017 Mastered by Doug Schwartz at Mulholland Sound, Chatsworth CA Stan Ridgway: guitars, vocals Pietra Wexstun: keyboards, electronics Bruce Zelesnik: drum, percussion Strings: Laslo Vickers Bass: Bill Blatt Produced by Stan Ridgway "Rebel King" is a song written by Stan Ridgway C & P 2017 dis information music BMI With an author’s eye for detail and nuance, shadow and light, Ridgway’s song about iconic actor/director Orson Welles, best known for his film masterpiece “Citizen Kane”, explodes in glorious guitars and strings. And is quite like a piece of wide screen cinema in itself. Stan Ridgway’s inimitable baritone recounts the early scandals, rancorous studio battles and fabled Hollywood history of the great artist, genius and iconoclast. New work from the Wall Of Voodoo mastermind. A sincere tribute from one America’s master... more lyrics REBEL KING by Stan Ridgway At crack of dawn he died alone Typing up a new screenplay at home Every night he ate at Ma Massion' Sat in his regular booth There he would wait for the ones Who'd made promises for films to come They never showed they just cut and run He'd say - some stories Suffer from the truth Deep in voice and big and broad On the New York radio he talked like God He'd made a joke on Halloween When Hitler started to march And all believed just like he'd planned But a Martian invasion no it never did land Marleana later said he was some kind of man But what does it matter what you say? Behind the gates where the fires keep burning A camera pans on a wheel that's turning High on a crane, track the wall and staircase A mirror shatters with no dreams to replace Orson Welles still burning bright You'd said the best shots were all in black and white Color can distract and make the dream not right And then the dream will fade away And then the dream will fade away Years ago his rebel soul Was called to Hollywood to work with RKO He told a tale 'bout a big newspaper man With power riches and greed - but then Louella called her boss and said This film is all about you we must kill this dead And with one whisper on a phone from a San Simeon bed Outside a giant white cockatoo screamed Newspaper printed he had made a movie A masterpiece that made them afraid of A reputation that would not behave or Follow orders from the ones who ordered Orson Welles still burnin' bright They'd said you were too dark And that they needed more light But with no shadow on the wall Then the dream's not right And then the dream will fade away And then the dream will fade away After he died, went to his wake There in Hollywood where most people fake Sat in back, Director's Guild The public was invited to attend Most empty seats but loved ones there People from his past and all the ones who cared Moses gave a sermon 'bout the dancing bear A traitor uttered Rosebud... Kane and Ambersons, The Mercury Theater Rock the Cradle, Third Man, The Stranger Voodoo MacBeth and the Lady From Shanghai A Touch Of Evil, hear The Chimes At Midnight Orson Welles died alone Slumped over his typewriter and his telephone But not before he'd written Where his hero goes home And where the dreams don't fade away People always fear what they can't buy and own And where the dreams won't fade —— words & music by stan ridgway dis information music bmi 2017 credits released August 10, 2017 Recorded, Mixed at GoldenTone Studios Venice CA March 2017 Mastered by Doug Schwartz at Mulholland Sound, Chatsworth CA Stan Ridgway: guitars, vocals Pietra Wexstun: keyboards, electronics Bruce Zelesnik: drum, percussion Strings: Laslo Vickers Bass: Bill Blatt Produced by Stan Ridgway "Rebel King" is a song written by Stan Ridgway C & P 2017 dis information music BMI
