About LOST STRAITJACKETS:
Los Straitjackets are the leading practitioners of the lost art of the guitar instrumental. Using the music of The Ventures, The Shadows, and with Link Wray and Dick Dale as a jumping off point, the band has taken their unique, high energy brand of original rock & roll around the world.
Clad in their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, the 'Jackets' have delivered their trademark guitar licks to 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows. Viva Los Straitjackets!
About JAKE LA BOTZ TRIO:
Jake La Botz was teaching meditation in a northwest Georgia prison when something unexpected caught his ear. He was not sure at first, but he could swear it sounded like a band was playing in the room next door. And not just any band, for that matter, but a genuine, bonafide, soul shaking gospel band.
I remember getting really excited because both of my worlds were coming together, La Botz recalls. The two sides of my life converged into this one beautiful moment that just stopped me in my tracks.
La Botz did not realize it at the time, but that marriage of music and meditation would go on to form the bedrock of his captivating new album, Hair On Fire.
The collection balances the wisdom and patience of La Botzs decades of Buddhist training with the grit and vigor of his Chicago upbringing to create a sound that is at once unabashedly vintage and decidedly present. The writing is raw and direct here, cutting straight to the heart of things with honesty and urgency, and the performances are similarly spare and unvarnished, fueled by lean, spacious arrangements centered around La Botzs well worn vocals. Add it all up and you have a spiritually enlightening dose of neo noir American roots from a writer who's unafraid to wear his soul on his sleeve, an alternatingly dark and hopeful collection that tips its cap to everyone from Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen to Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello as it ruminates on compassion and vulnerability, strength and surrender, growth and redemption.***
