Yep Roc is proud to unveil to the world a brand new song and video from those masked avengers of cool, Los Straitjackets. “Brooklyn Slide” is sure to be the brand new dance sensation sweeping the nation in a matter of days.
Joined by their good friends Angie and Helen Pontani of the World Famous Pontani Sisters, Los Straitjackets will blow your mind with their amazing dancefloor skills. Mister Pete, Eddie Angel, Gregorio El Grande and Teen Beat have been hard at work all summer on their moves, under the tender and patient guidance of Ms. Angie Pontani, and boy does it ever pay off. You will be shocked and amazed!
To paraphrase Archie Bell & the Drells: “Los Straitjackets not only play, but they dance just as good as they want.”
Los Straitjackets and The World Famous Pontani Sisters will be hitting the road this October, bringing their Rock ‘n’ Burlesque Spectacular direct to the people. They would be happy to school you in the Brooklyn Slide, as well as any number of other moves, in person.
