Los Straitjackets – The Further Adventures Of Los Straitjackets CD (Yep Roc)
After a few years of doing a variety of different projects (a Spanish vocals disc, a covers disc, a twist/beat disc, a concert DVD, and a disc targeted towards movie/TV/video game use), America’s premier instrumental rock n’ roll band followed up this activity with a back-to-basics set of great original music. This 13-song discs is filled with great twangy surf, garage and fuzz songs, showing off the impeccable musicianship of Eddie Angel, Danny Amis, Pete Curry and Jason Smay. Personal faves include “Blowout”, “Teen Beast”, “Tubby” and “Mercury”.
