“one of the hardest things to achieve in music – a unique sound. Endearingly spicy, they leave you wanting more.” Steve BeeBee Planet Rock
"the Greatest Flamenco Punk Glam Rock band ever, as they advertise themselves, are indeed that. They are unique in looks, and also in sound. Go and see the Pistoleros, you will not be disappointed." Haydn Wiltshire FRAME Music “Hanoi Rocks-like glam punk ... some real quality there” - Midlands rocks
"Imagine the house band from ‘From Dusk Til Dawn’ jamming with ZZ Top, a youthful Guns ‘N’ Roses and the Gypsy Kings and you get this. Latino fuelled punk rock doesn’t get much better than this" - Getreadytorock.
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
New tracks from upcoming album ‘Duende a Go Go Go!’ – Due for release August 2023 Pre- Order in May.

GYPSY PISTOLEROS are "The World's Greatest Flamenco Punk Glam Rock 'N' Roll band Ever!" Combining their truly unique mix of flamenco rumba which gleefully collides with old school punk and rock 'n' roll riffs.
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 the Latin spirit. 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 70’s America. Standing alone in musical ancestry and sum sound, they were one of those most rare acts who can honestly claim the tag 'unique'.
Upon returning to music in 2020 after a ten-year break (Theatre, Drama degree, film career) a clean and now 3 years sober Gypsy Lee Pistolero, went about reinventing the band, by stealing all the best musicians in Worcester. Ditching the past L.A Guns support band tag!
The legend Dave Draper (The Wildhearts) plays all guitar on studio recordings! The total powerhouse rhythm section of Kerry White (Bass, from the Suzi Quatro School of Bass) and the hard hitting, whirlwind that is Craig Sharpe (Drums)
The only rule musically, was that there are no rules. Straight back into the limelight, the band signed a 'Greatest hits' album deal release with Golden Robot Records, then released the Latin, mariachi flavoured 'The Mescalito Vampires' after moving to Off Yer Rocka Records.
Debuting at Lakefest 2021 Festival headlining the BBC Introducing stage, they then went on to appear on the main stages at Hard Rock Hell Sleaze Fest and Hard Rock Hell, this year saw a full headlining U.K Tour after a return to HRH Sleaze (Mike Monroe, Hardcore Superstar, Crazy Lixx) and in November a show stealing Hard Rock Hell Fest return alongside The Darkness, Skid Row, Ugly Kid Joe and a fantastic reception at Planet rock winters's end! 2023 will see a tep up to the next level in every respect. Watch this space!
The new album ‘Duende a Go Go Go’ has been recorded , mixed and produced by fast-rising legend Dave Draper (The Wildhearts, Nickleback, Kerbdog, Terrorvision, The Professionals) at The Old Cider Press Studios, Pershore. Dave is also playing all guitar parts too! So its on a different level! The next Single "What's it like to be a Girl?"i s due for release in May (plus video) and the full album Digital/CD & Vinyl will be out later in the year.

Quotes from radio and press:
"one of the hardest things to achieve in music – a unique sound" - Steve BeeBee Planet Rock
“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
"Another deft dose of Latin laced, Mariachi sleaze. A Day of the dead, guillotine theatre with cinematic Morricone pretensions. Contrived, preposterous, irresistible" - CLASSIC ROCK
"This, actually, is as good as sleaze ever got in the last decade. Gypsy Pistoleros were, and still are, a breath of fresh air. You will never hear another band like this. They are the greatest flamenco sleaze glam band ever. And that’s just a fact. If you don’t believe me, listen to this." - Paul Thorley Maximum volume music
"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!" - Planet Mosh
