Los Straitjackets

Mixing the familiar sounds of Dick Dale, Duane Eddy, and the Ventures, Los Straitjackets create their own version of energetic surf guitar twang complete with Mexican wrestling masks. Los Straitjackets began in the summer of 1988. Eddie Angel (guitar), L.J. "Jimmy" Lester (drums), and Danny Amis (guitar) formed an instrumental trio called the Straitjackets, which played local Nashville shows throughout the summer. After a six-year hiatus, the Straitjackets reunited, added E. Scott Esbeck on bass, and changed their name to Los Straitjackets. In November 1994, the band signed with Upstart Records. They released their first single, "Gatecrasher" b/w "Lonely Apache," on Sympathy for the Record Industry in February 1995. In March 1995, the band's first album, The Utterly Fantastic and Totally Unbelievable Sound of los Straitjackets, was released on Upstart. That summer the band went on its first major U.S. tour. In June 1996, the band released its second album, ¡Viva!; The Velvet Touch of los Straitjackets followed in 1999 and Damas y Caballeros! surfaced two years later. The mysterious musos decided to move on to holiday music the next year, and tackled several Christmas favorites on the fun 'Tis the Season for los Straitjackets! Supersonic Guitars in 3-D arrived in 2003, followed by a collection of outtakes, live tracks, and rarities called Vivos y los Raros in 2004. Twist Part dropped in 2006, followed by the all-star Rock en Español, Vol. 1 in 2007. In 2009, Los Straitjackets returned with The Further Adventures of Los Straitjackets -- a back-to-basics album that nixed guest vocalists and horns in favor of the Straitjackets core rocking guitar sound. 2012's Jet Set, which marked the return of Amis to the band after recovering from a difficult illness, was recorded at the Pow Wow Fun Room Studios in Los Angeles, produced by Janne Haavisto, and featured guest spots from the Basic Cable Horns (best-known for their work on the Conan television show) and Finnish actress and musician Irina Bjorklund. ~ Tracy Frey & Steve Leggett, Rovi

Interesting. . . . s o u n d s like early '60s beach rock (a la Wipeout). Will have to listen to more of their music.

I've been a fan of these guys for almost as long as they've been around...eno u g h so that I actually went out on a quest for Eddie Angel's solo album...grea t stuff.
Pandora put the wrong punctuation on the album named ''¡Viva!''
surfs up
Been to 1000 shows but none better than Los Straightjack e t s ! ! A must see!!!
Can't wait to catch these guys live!! Awesome
Some a** kicking jams, i wish i could hear them in person.
evelynphipps

guys r cool
Great band great guys to chat with...Saw them in Fresno in May...they are in Belguim, Germany now...hope to see them when they come west again.
kevsuz
Just saw them over the weekend at Tiki Oasis 11. They are a must-see! Super sweet show!
SURF DOGS..SKI DOGS..SKATE DOGS...ULTRA L I T E D O G S . . . .
Caught them a few weeks back in Annapolis MD, they do give quite a show. Was a nice little venue and apologies to the headline act for walking out on them, Los Straightjack e t s was all I needed!
Don't ever pass up a chance to see them live, you won't be sorry. I believe Daddy 'o Grande has some health issues so check their site if they are still touring.
Pretty good.

Kool!

Alwasy like Surf muisc
great style and talent. i will be catching them dec 12 in north carolina
They are great live. I saw them in Tampa. A real "guitar army" show.
awsome live,true showmen in the best sense!
yes. awesomeness!
Go see them live. Awesome show every time. Pete Curry (Pedro Del Mar) is the bass player. Jason Smay (Teen Beat) replaced Lester on drums. Eddie Angel and Danny Amis (Daddy-O-Gra n d e ) remain as original members. If you can catch them with Big Sandy it's a plus. Either way, a great show.
I think they've got a new bassist Pete Curry. Also believe they started out as Nashville sessionistas . That would explain the tightness. I absolutely adore the sound these guys put out.
always a surf music fan.
I just recently found out about these guys. I haven't heard authentic surf sounds like this since I was a kid in the early 60's. These guys are great!
What an amazing band. Thanks Pandora!
almost saw these guys back in 98, sadly I was a month shy of 21 and sol.
