NAME: Pete Curry
BAND AFFILIATION: Los Straitjackets
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … The BIG Sounds of the Drags!
“It’s not every day we have a member of the Los Straitjackets in our band, so I figured we’d do some surf,” announced roots-rock guitarist Deke Dickerson near the start of two sets at Valentine’s Music Hall on Monday night.
A tall guy in a straw cowboy hat, Dickerson looked like he could lead his own cattle drive as he charged through surfed-up versions of the mythic cowboy tale “Ghost Riders in the Sky” and rockabilly rave-up “Whistle Bait.”
