Cleveland Surfs




A few Fridays ago, Los Straitjackets released this on Bandcamp. I've been meaning to post it ever since.

It isn't brand spanking new, though. Some digging for a hard copy took me to a single from 2012. 

In the words of Wile E. Coyote, "this is pure, unadulterated genius."

You and Wile E Coyote are right.

Love practically everything these hombres do.

That is outstanding. Great way to start the day.

I had the great fortune of seeing these guys support Nick Lowe a couple of years ago. Fantastic show. Hadn't heard this one before--thanks for posting!

So I'm listening to Nick Lowe and Los Straitjackets groovy "Haw River Ballroom 2019" and I drop in here. Nice coincidence and a tasty version.

Truly awesome!

Another example of how great/clever the 'Straits are is their album with Deke Dickerson, "Deke Dickerson Sings The Great Instrumental Hits", in which they formulate lyrics to great instrumental hits of the past. Exceptional!

Great pick, Mr. N.
In my dream of a perfect world, there's an app where you can put in any song and it will play back a version of how it would sound by Los Straitjackets.
