Gypsy Pistoleros are a thrill-a-minute collection of melodic eye-patch swagger that smells of exotic spices and forbidden concubines. The Gypsy Pistoleros sound like Hanoi Rocks, if Hanoi Rocks were sultans and snakecharmers.' - Sleazegrinder-Classic Rock Magazine
' As crystal and ballsy as the local chapter of the Hells Angels, if The Angels were playing at a Mexican wedding fantastic stuff with gritty Mexican dust and magic oozing from every pore.' - Shane, The Rockpit
Gypsy Pistoleros are still something truly unique and interesting in today’s predictable musical landscape. A sound and style that mixed sleazy glam rock with flamenco influences and a shout out to Mexican folklore and Spanish tendencies.
The sound is flamenco in a head on collision with punk/rock riffs, pounding bass and thrashing drums. The songs span madly in the best rock 'n' roll tradition with big hooks, attitude, and sleaze. Yet those flamenco breaks got into your head and refused to leave - this hybrid rocks.
This mongrel offspring of fiery flamenco passion and gritty gutter glam, the Gypsy Pistoleros' were born roamin' somewhere between Barcelona and Birmingham, brought into the world to a soundtrack stack-heeled anthems of sleazy ‘70s America. Standing alone in musical ancestry and sum sound, they are one one of those most rare acts who can honestly claim the tag 'unique'
The insane inspiration came from frontman Lee Pistolero GLP, who struck on fusing his roots in the British glam punk circuit to the traditional flamenco/rumba sounds of Spain when living in Zaragoza and supporting Motorhead, The Ramones, Dio, Nazareth, The Cramps, Sepultura and U.F. O during the mid-90s., from stale-beer scented Midlands rock dives, to the majestic Med-coast just upwind of exotic Morocco.
Gypsy Pistoleros may be best described as being the ideal house band for the fictitious Titty Twister bar of Rodriguez’s From Dusk Til Dawn. Between the nods to Morricone’s tense, tumbleweed atmospheres and the Gypsy Kings’ manic Mediterranean energy, a New York Dolls raw glam spark and a surplus of prime G ’n’ R attitude, the Pistoleros‘ sonic style has roots has a widespread as the global fanbase it’s been gathering since they began playing in 2006.
