The world’s number one instrumental combo team has teamed up with roots-music legend Deke Dickerson to record an album of famous instrumental songs with lost or rewritten lyrics is set to be released October 7
Read what Deke Dickerson has to say about the new album and watch the lyric video for “Kawanga Below.”
“In case you’re confused, imagine Bill Murray’s classic lounge singer character on ‘Saturday Night Live’ belting out drunken made up lyrics to the ‘Star Wars Theme.’ It can be done, it has been done, and these songs truly come alive once you hear them sung… with words!
In this case, America’s #1 Instrumental combo (Los Straitjackets) and I decided that 6 knuckleheads were better than one and that joining forces for an album’s worth of vocal instrumentals was yet another mountain that needed be to climbed. It is the first album of its kind, and it is required to be in your collection.
Perfect for parties, wait until your guests have a few beers in them and throw this sucker on and turn it up loud. Before you know it, you’ll be yelling the lyrics to “Pipeline” and “Popcorn” and making out to the romantic vocal version of “Miserlou” and, most of all, wondering why it took so long for someone in show business to come up with an idea this good.”Tags: Deke Dickerson, Los Straitjacekts, Merch Bundle, Pre-order
