Los Straitjackets - What's So Funny About Peace, Love And Los Straitjackets

For the past three Decembers, America’s Lucha Libre guitar heroes Los Straitjackets have toured with Nick Lowe for his Christmas-themed Quality Holiday Revue, performing classics old and new with the Jesus of Cool. Van discussions with Nick’s co-producer Neil Brockbank led to the speculation: What would Nick’s songs sound like as instrumentals? There was only one way to answer the question. Los Straitjackets delved into Nick’s catalog - from Brinsley Schwarz through Rockpile to his late career as a soulful pop stylist - and came up with original arrangements of some of Nick’s most iconic songs.
