View Full Version : Viva Los Straitjackets!

Been listening to the latest Los Straitjackets, called Twist Party and featuring the world famous Pontani Sisters and Kaiser George.

I grabbed the vinyl, but both the vinyl and CD come with a DVD of dance instructions courtesy of the lovely Pontani Sisters with some skits and some videos tossed in.

I was slow to pull the trigger since the price is a bit high for either the CD or vinyl; I guess 'cause of the DVD. Still, it's a really fun album. Faithful versions of popular twist classics from days gone by and similar retro guitar driven tunes throughout. If you like 50s/early 60s rock revival stuff, grab it!

OK...listening to El Vez now. Anybody know him? The Mexican Elvis. Got an EP called A Lad from Spain goin' right now...cover's a mock up of Bowie's Aladin Sain album...get it? He does a version of Rock and Roll Suicide and a wonderful track done to the tune of Cee Cee Rider called Si, I'm a Low Rider.

OK...outta here in a bit...Saturday Night and all. Later.

I'm assuming that latest Los Straitjackets has vocals throughout?

Not the whole thing, but I'd guess about 2/3rds of it has vocals.
