Nick Lowe And Los Straitjackets The Quality Holiday Revue Live on 180g LP
After a 2014 tour that included sold-out shows and special performances everywhere from NPR's Fresh Air to A Prairie Home Companion, Nick Lowe's Quality Holiday Revue will return to the US in December for a dozen shows in all-new markets. Mute, Mexican-wrestling-mask-clad superheroes Los Straitjackets will serve as Lowe's backing band.
Just before the launch of the tour, Yep Roc will release Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets' The Quality Holiday Revue Live LP in November 2015. Recorded live in Boston, the LP captures a performance the Boston Herald called "spectacular...what an amazing concept...what an amazing show." The album contains a few holiday classics, alongside some of Lowe's most beloved songs and is limited to 1,500 copies worldwide!
The Quality Holiday Revue Live album follows the release of Nick Lowe's first-ever holiday album Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For All the Family. The New York Times notes that, "Nick Lowe is surely up there with Boy Dylan and Scott Weiland as one of the most surprising artists to record a Christmas album."
