Los Straightjackets – Sing Along with… – CD
(Cavalcade Records) I haven’t heard these guys for quite some time, but it seems like they are posed to get some recognition. Helping out on this release are Mike Campbell, The Reverend Horton Heat, Nick Lowe, Allison Moorer and many others. From what I recall Los Straightjackets were primarily a surf band with a Mexican tilt, especially since most of the vocals were in Spanish. Now they are a surf / rockabilly / blues that really fires things up, and still sing a few songs in Spanish. Their sound is really raw which brings to mind recordings from the 60’s and causes Los Straightjackets to have a more authentic sound than most bands of these styles. {Grog}
