Dangerous Minds premiered a video from Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets Quality Holiday Revue, in which The Los Straitjackets put a surf rock edge on the classic Peanuts theme song. The performance comes from the Quality Holiday Revue Live LP, which is out 11/27 as a Record Store Day Black Friday release.
The luchador-masked garage/surf band Los Straitjackets have been a popular live act for over 20 years, thanks to tight musicianship and energetic, theatrical stage shows. They’re known for sharing stages with other showy, dynamic performers like the burleque troupe The Pontani Sisters, but lately they’ve begun working with someone altogether different—Nick Lowe, the great songwriter and producer who lived the transition from pub rock to New Wave and beyond.
