Los Straitjackets music album

Music Album Review: Los Straitjackets - "What's So Funny About Peace, Love and Los Straitjackets" (8/10)

Known for their lucha mask schtick, Los Straitjackets are truly one of the best instro bands in the U.S.A. After a recent tour with ace British pub-rocker Nick Lowe, they recorded a tribute album to him in their inimitable NO VOCALS fashion. And it totally works! Lowe’s tunes not only prove to be strong enough to stand as melodic instrumentals (which are delivered here in various tempos) but even the lesser known songs make quite an impact. You know Lowe’s work with Elvis Costello and Dave Edmunds, now get hip to the Los Straitjackets tip!
