Los Straitjackets :: What’s So Funny About Peace, Love & Los Straitjackets 

What’s So Funny About Peace, Love And Understanding is de grootste hit van Nick Lowe. What’s So Funny About Peace, Love And Los Straitjackets heet de nieuwe CD van Los Straitjackets, die geweldige Amerikaanse surf/rock/gitaarband die altijd optreedt met kleurrijke Mexicaanse worstelmaskers op. Ze geven 13 Nick Lowe-composities de Los Straitjackets-behandeling en het resultaat is pretentieloos topamusement. Lowe, diens 12-jarige zoon Royston en zijn vaste begeleider Geraint Watkins leveren gastbijdrages aan de allerleukste plaat van 2017.

In their two-and-a-half-decade, 15-album hot streak as America’s foremost instrumental guitar combo, Los Straitjackets has earned a reputation for audacious album concepts and star-crossed collaborations. Both descriptions apply to Los Straitjackets’ new album What’s So Funny About Peace, Love and Los Straitjackets. The new album finds the masked marvels paying tribute to friend, Yep Roc labelmate and longtime admirer Nick Lowe, delivering distinctive instrumental interpretations of 13 songs drawn from the English master tunesmith’s illustrious career. “The only suggestion Nick gave us,” says guitarist Greg Townson, “was ‘Don’t be too reverential, ignore the original versions.  Do the songs the way Los Straitjackets would do them.
