Who Were Those Masked Men?
Los Straitjackets bring surf music -- and Mexican wrestling masks -- to Twilight Concert series
by Brooke Thomas
Hi, nice article, and good to see attention given to a fine group of musicians. I wish to point out an inaccuracy related to this item in the article:
"However, the band reformed in 1994 with Curry on bass and Smay on drums."
In actuality the reformed group included bass player Scott Esbeck and Jimmy Lester on drums (Jimmy left the group just 3-4 years ago).
From the Los Straitjackets website:
"1994 May The Straitjackets get back together for kicks and add Scott Esbeck."
"1995 January Jimmy Lester is also nominated as Best Drummer"
