The Further Adventures of Los Straitjacketsby Los Straitjackets
It's back to basics as everyone's favorite Mexican wrestling mask-wearing, Chuck Taylor-clad, surf and garage instrumental rock band ditches the guest vocals (in English and Spanish), occasional horns (save for the honking sax on one track), and '60s dance moves to concentrate on what it does best. The baker's dozen songs zip by in a half hour, and while there is

Whether or not you are familiar with Los Straightjackets, I can't imagine anyone NOT loving their music. If you ae a fan of The Ventures, and other classic Rock Instrumental groups, Los Straightjackets are for you. This CD returns them to their classic sound after a few amazing CD's with guest vocalists and a slight but rewarding detour into Latin pop music of the 1960's. This disc returns them to the realm of instrumental rock with renewed energy and even great musicianship -if tha's possible. The graphics of this CD are not to be missed. Includes Los Straightjackets Trading Cards.
Another fun surf-rock type album from Los Straitjackets, just fine, but nothing to write home about. I just needed to comment that I think the dudes in the band may have been having a flashback from their Nintendo days (if they ever had any) when they wrote "Nocturnal Twist." While many youngsters might not remember this, once upon a time, long ago in the far off land of the 1980s, there was a Nintendo game called MappyLand, and I'm pretty sure that "Nocturnal Twist" is just a Dick Dale version of the music that plays during one of the levels of MappyLand. If any of you remember the game: I mean the level where Mappy had to get through the ghosts and churches with a balloon and flashlight. It's probably been at least 10 years since I played that game, but listening to track 9 on this album completely brought it all back to mind. Not really important, but hey, the more you know.
