Roadrunner’s Paradise, Berlin, Germany

For many years now, Los Straitjackets have been one band that I always make it a point to go see when they played in the Capital District. With the blazing guitar work of Nippertown’s own Eddie Angel, Los Straitjackets is one of those rare bands that I can honestly say I would go to the ends of the earth to see play live. And as you will soon find out, that’s not so much of a stretch for me to say. Eddie Angel’s performances with his other well-known band, the Neanderthals, has also given my ears many hours of enjoyment over the years.

So, imagine my absolute delight when I found out that both of Eddie’s bands, Los Straitjackets and the Neanderthals would be headlining the Troy River Street Festival on June 18, a mere three blocks from my home! To have both the Neanderthals and Los Straitjackets playing live for free, within spitting distance of my front porch, was just too good to be true. It was gonna be great! I could make the five minute walk to enjoy the River Street Festival, groove to Eddie and the guys as they rocked downtown Troy… yeah, it was gonna be really great!

The Last Conspirators's TL Stone

The Last Conspirators have apparently been in deep sleeper-cell mode. Their most recent CD, “When It All Comes Down,” was released nearly a year ago, and they haven’t been heard from since. But any reports of their demise were premature. After an 11-month hiatus (hibernation? coma?) TL Stone and his comrades in rock re-emerged last Friday, roaring into Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany with a vengeance.

And Bill Dhalle sent along some photographs to prove it:
