By Blurt Staff
It’s been 18 years since BLURT surf-garage-Latino rock faves
Los Straitjackets first
dressed in their easily recognizable Lucha Libre masks. Since then the group
has toured around the world, released 11 studio albums and 2 live LPs,
including collaborations with Eddy
Clearwater and The
World Famous Pontani Sisters. Produced by the bands longtime friend
and revered musician Janne Haavisto (former drummer of Finland’s Laika and the Cosmonauts), the brand
new Jet Set drops August 7 on Yep Roc. It features guest
appearances from Conan O’Brien’s The Basic Cable Horns and Finnish
actress/musician Irina Bjorkland.
