BEAVER BUZZ - Dave Wilks
Gypsy Pistoleros – Lost In A Town Called Nowhere
Gypsy Pistoleros dub themselves “The World’s Greatest Flamenco Sleaze Glam Rock ‘N’ Roll band Ever!” Does it work? Are you fucking kidding me? When Kris Jones drops the mariachi trumpet, it’s on. The song is insanely catchy and I am waiting very impatiently for this album.
I don’t know if I got the story right, but an album like The Mescalito Vampires is definitely open to interpretation. Regardless of how you view it, it’s a fantastic album that succeeds at being both a great album as a whole, but also filled with individual classics that stand alone. Thinking of an album like that, Operation: Mindcrime comes to mind as the standard.
It’s also extremely accessible and fun. You could absolutely play this at a Latin-inspired get-together: have a fiesta, celebrate Día de Los Muertos, honour Cinco de Mayo, celebrate Charo‘s birthday. Just find an excuse to play this album through.
"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.
You’ll love it I’m sure. Just think of the Pistoleros 2021 as “The World’s Greatest Flamenco Sleaze Glam Rock ‘N’ Roll band Ever! … now with extra trumpet…” 8/10 Mark Diggins -The Rockpit
"The Mescalito Vampires" , a crazy album like few others, perfect to have a good time while having a few drinks or planning to overthrow a tyrant in the next revolution. Flamenco, sleazy, punk brushstrokes and tequila-filled laments are interspersed throughout ten tracks of pure fun.

75-minutes of truly crazy and absolutely bonkers mad but utterly brilliant rock music that puts the biggest grin ever on your face, ever!
I really had no idea what to expect. I certainly didn't expect the adrenaline rush of a rock-hard guitar rock band, but it was there immediately, because they immediately fall in with great riffs and wonderful guitar rock that immediately make you turn the volume knob to the right. This is pure energy, delivered with a lot of humor. Punk has never been so much fun, with all those Mexican and Spanish peppers on the side. What they have in any case taken from flamenco is the passion.
"This, actually, is as good as sleaze ever got in the last decade... and the 12 years that has passed done nothing to dissuade me from the opinion I used to have back then. 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."
Rating 9/10 Maximum Volume Music - Andrew Thorley
The crossover of powerful foot-to-the-floor Sleaze Metal, and loose flamenco flair, Marshall stacks and Mexican brass, should appeal to bohemian rockers on multiple continents.
Album of the Week - Can you imagine Sleaze, Glam, Hard Rock, Punk and some Flamenco rolled into one with a whole lot of Spanish 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
Diablo Welcome To The Darkness

Can I just say that this album is one of the stand out moments for me this year, great vibes going on in this and it's this weeks featured album of the week on Mark "Pedal To The Metal" Parker MMH - The Home Of Rock Radio Playing four tracks from it. Your cover of Bowie's Wild Is The Wind is beautiful. Show is on between 6 and 8PM GMT Saturday night.
If you’re a fan of desert vampires, hot tequila, and crickle-crackle, boundary crossing sleaze rock… this is for you.

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.
This is an album that has to be in your collection, and once you’ve listened to this be ready for their brand-new album which they have just finished recording: ‘The Mescalito Vampires!’ and unleashed next year.
"to get us off our feet to jump around and just enjoy this awesome record in all it's glory and wht it all means to us mere mortals as we go on the journey with these swashbuckling pioneers of sleaze rock in all it's glory"
They come across like a mix of Guns N Roses, New York Dolls and the Ramones jamming with a Tex Mex band. The covers will rip into your ears and have you bouncing away, be it ‘Livin La Vida Loca’ or ‘Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves’ (which keeps part of the original’s musical backing). Their original songs are just as much fun and frantic, be it ‘Ay Que Dolor’ or the band’s theme tune, ‘Pistolero, Pistolero’ – play that one at maximum volume.
Gypsy Pistoleros are great fun on album and I am betting they are even more fun & energetic live. This collection is a good summary of how the Gypsy Pistoleros have arrived to this point. Play it loud, enjoy and get ready for their next album… ****

‘The Greatest Flamenco Glam Sleaze Band Ever!’
(Golden Robot Records)
Formed in 2005 the GYPSY PISTOLEROS have been carving out a unique niche for themselves in the crazy world of rock n’ roll. From the New York Dolls to Guns N’ Roses via El Bronco the Gypsy Pistoleros have got a stunning TexMex thing going on. A career spanning retrospective has been long overdue and it’s finally arrived in the aptly titled ‘THE GREATEST FLAMENCO GLAM SLEAZE BAND EVER!’
Arriving with all guns blazing ‘Is Ay Que Dolor’ is the lively opener and by way of a calling card it’s the perfect introduction. An insanely catchy riff drives the song forward and that driving beat is amplified by solid rhythm section of drummer Jan Vincent Vellazo and bassist Ian McDonald Walker. Without pausing for breath the equally raucous ‘Pistolero, Pistolero’ arrives like an unruly guest with a case of tequila as Kris Jones’ trumpet adds a distinctly Western film vibe. Something of a theme tune ‘Pistolero, Pistolero’ sweeps up the unwary in its effervescence and you’d better buckle up for the ride.
‘The Greatest Flamenco Glam Sleaze Band Ever!’ is the kind of album that seems tailor made for Saturday night revelry and it succinctly encapsulates the sheer joy of a Gypsy Pistoleros live show. The sequencing of this album is spot on and ensures the tracks ebb and flow with ‘Last Of The Jet Boys’ and ‘Senor Mangi Acqui’ both racking up the tension before ‘What’s It Like To Be A Girl’ arrives with pure punk passion (replete with handclaps) just to throw the listener into a hex.
Pulling classic riffs from his guitar with apparent ease Mark Westwood scrawls his sound everywhere on the lively ‘Una Para Todo Es Bandido!’. Up next is a cover of ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca’...hell yeah! As with all good covers the band grab the bull by the horns and impart their own stamp on proceedings. Gypsy Pistoleros are like some unruly house band from the Titty Twisters Bar and they provide the soundtrack for a night of wicked debauchery with ‘Chica’s Peligrosa’, ‘Moonchild’ and ‘The Crazy Loco Loquito’ following in quick succession.
There’s not a duff track on this collection and the great thing about the Gypsy’s is they’re guaranteed not to flag on you and slip in a soppy ballad. The closest you get is the epic ‘Sangre Till Dawn’ but that’s a case of the band pacing themselves over an eight minute song. Two neat covers follow back to back: ‘Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves’ and ‘Wild Is The Wind’ before ‘Forever Is Para Siempre’ brings this collection to a fitting collection with the inimitable Gypsy Lee Pistoleros giving a spirited performance.
A compendium that shows why the Gypsy Pistoleros are the undisputed kings of Flamenco Sleaze this album should definitely be in your collection and is a fine precursor to their brand new album ‘The Mescalito Vampires!’ dropping next year.
