Listen: Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets have the Mountain Stage Song of the Week

Nov 7, 2019

Iconic musician, songwriter and producer Nick Lowe returned to Mountain Stage flanked by surf-rock legends Los Straitjackets to perform a set of songs from their latest EP “Love Starvation/Trombone.”

Lowe was producer on the early works of Elvis Costello, who popularized Lowe’s song “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding.” Here the song is reprised by Lowe and the Straitjackets as the set-closer of the group’s appearance on this week’s episode of Mountain Stage.

Listeners will also be treated to a set of beautiful new songs from Patty Griffin, an amped up performance from alt-rock poet Craig Finn & Uptown Controllers, and the fresh sound of Shook Twins. Find a station that carries Mountain Stage here and be sure to tune in to this ‘can’t miss’ episode.
