'Day of the Dead Girls' Video


GYPSY PISTOLEROS the swashbuckling renegade flamenco rock rumba punk ‘n’ roll pioneers are aiming for the Xmas No.1 spot with a cracking version of the world anthem, Livin la Vida Loca!

These sleazers are unashamedly going for a Christmas hit, with a Day of the Dead‘ inspired video  This Xmas No.1 Campaign has begun and is fully released on 17th December. It is backed by the Guru of Xmas Hits Jon Morter. With all proceeds going to Shelter.

Come on join the party it’s gonna be a blast!


Jon Morter is best known for his gatecrashing of the music industry in 2009 with his phenomenal Rage Against The X Factor campaign, sweeping Rap/Metal band Rage Against The Machine into the sought after UK Christmas No.1 spot.  This success opened the door for Jon to work on campaigns for some big artists in the industry including Nirvana, Sex Pistols, Rod Stewart, David Essex, a No.1 album for The Rolling Stones, AC/DC‘s highest-ever chart placing in the UK singles chart, Rik Mayall’s 2010 World Cup single (which incidentally Jon campaigned for again after Rik’s death making the UK No.7 in 2014), and the 2012 Christmas No.1 campaign for The Justice Collective.

GYPSY PISTOLEROS have released the  highly anticipated already critically acclaimed album 'The Mescalito Vampires' Is this Latin Rocks Appeite for Destruction?

  Released on CD, special limited edition Double 10" coloured Vinyl & Digital.

The swashbuckling renegade flamenco rock rumba punk 'n' roll pioneers  release the album they always promised to make, this album sees Gypsy Pistoleros fully embracing their fiery flamenco/rumba passion & crossover punk rock 'n' roll leanings!

A telephone rings. A long, bony hand reaches forward and lifts the receiver. “Hello,” drawls a tequila-soaked voice. “Hi, is that Gypsy Lee?” comes back that on the other end of the line. “Yep,” comes the rattle from deep inside an undead throat. “This is Robert Rodriquez. I have a vacancy for a house band at my bar. It’s called La Tetilla del Diablo. The only catch is you gotta be able to play from dusk ‘til dawn…” The line goes dead, ‘cos Gypsy Lee has already packed his guitar, his corpse paint and, of course, his sombrero… UBER ROCK

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 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.

"Imagine the house band from ‘From Dusk Til Dawn’ jamming with (early era) ZZ Top, a youthful Guns ‘N’ Roses and the Gypsy Kings and you get the Gypsy Pistoleros. Latino fuelled punk rock doesn’t get much better than this. ****'." -Review by Jason Ritchie -Get Ready to Rock

"Its catchier than a dose exhumation of the spirit of Joe Strummer, dusts him down, places a Rickenbacker around his still leather jacket clad shoulders and places him at the front of the Dia de la Muerte parade, where he struts and swaggers with all the cool ease of a true troubadour. A party anthem for the undead generation, without a doubt.

The Pistoleros are a band who live up to their own hype, as they tick all of the boxes they attribute to themselves, and then some, with some of the most infectious, sleaziest, dirtiest, rock ‘n’ roll vibes around, all mixed with enough dust to bury a spaghetti western set several times over.
This may be the perfect soundtrack for a night of blood-drenched debauchery but it also that for glorious summer afternoons, packed to the brim with rambunctious riffs, mellifluous melodies and choruses that will rest in your aural cortexes for days afterwards." - UBER ROCK

"Another deft dose of Latin laced, Mariachi sleaze. A Day of the dead, guillotine theatre with cinematic Morricone pretensions. Contrived, preposterous, irresistible" CLASSIC ROCK, Album review 7/10

“You'll love it i'm sure! The World’s Greatest Flamenco Sleaze Glam Rock ‘N’ Roll band Ever! … now with extra trumpet…” MarkDiggins - The Rockpit 8/10

"The Pistoleros are sheer musical escapism" – Malcolm Yates, Classic Rock Magazine

"Once in a while something special comes along and turns the musical world on its axis and makes you listen to music and lyrics in a totally different way. That something is Gypsy Pistoleros." - WeBleedMusic

"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 snake charmers." - Sleazegrinder, Classic Rock Magazine

"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." This, actually, is as good as sleaze ever got in the last decade." - Andrew Thorley, Maximum Volume Music

"Gypsy Pistoleros dub themselves "The World's Greatest Flamenco Sleaze Glam Rock 'N' Roll band Ever!" Doesit work? Are you fucking kidding me? When Kris Jones drops the mariachi trumpet, it's on! - Dave Wilks, Beaver Buzz Radio

"Can you imagine Sleaze, Glam, Hard Rock, Punk and some Flamenco rolled into one with a whole lot ofSpanish attitude oozing out it? Imagine no more - The Gypsy Pistoleros will give it all to you, and you will love every minute of it and want to reach for a tequila shot" *****. - Michele Storm Hairspray Heaven

"The Gypsy Pistoleros sound seems to have one underlying function, and that is to bring joy, in this they have succeeded in spades, this is a truly brilliant release and already one of my albums of the year." Review by Martin  Granville Jace Media"This will be my go-to piece of music for escapism, in fiery technicolour, and as all Pistoleros songs do – have me reaching for the dancing shoes and the tequila!" -Rocket Queen Crazy Cowboy
