Los Straitjackets
What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace, Love & Understanding?
Yep Roc

We don’t normally do this, but following three holiday tours with Nick Lowe, America’s foremost instrumental guitar combo Los Straitjackets couldn’t help but ask the question, “What would Nick Lowe’s songs sound like as instrumentals?” On May 19, the Grammy-nominated guitar heroes will answer that question with the release of What’s So Funny About Peace, Love And Los Straitjackets on Yep Roc Records.
Produced by Neil Brockbank, Nick Lowe’s producer and longtime collaborator, the band delves into 13 of Lowe’s most iconic songs from his illustrious career with original arrangements. The album also features longstanding Lowe band member Geraint Watkins on keyboards, the recording debut of Royston Lowe on percussion, and a vocal cameo by Lowe himself on an undisclosed track.

So, until then….here’s the title track!
