Gypsy Pistoleros


The Swashbuckling Renegade Flamenco-Rock-Rumba, Punk ‘n’ Roll Pioneers Gypsy Pistoleros announce UK Headline Tour and New Single!

The swashbuckling renegade flamenco rock rumba punk ‘n’ roll pioneers Gypsy Pistoleros will release a brand new single The Good, The Mad & The Beautiful in October 2022. Recorded, mixed and produced by fast-rising legend Dave Draper (The Wildhearts, Kerbdog, Terrorvision, The Professionals) at The Old Cider Press Studios, Pershore. Draper is also set to record the new album Duende a Go Go Go! in November 2022.

The new material promises to be edgier, punkier and heavier side of Gypsy Pistoleros, whilst retaining the Flamenco Rumba heart and fully embracing their fiery flamenco/rumba passion, with their distinctive crossover of punk rock ‘n’ roll leanings!

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 Latin energy, a New York Dolls raw glam-punk spark and a surplus of prime G ‘n’ R attitude!

The sound is flamenco & rumba 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 refuse to leave – this unique hybrid rocks.

Gypsy Pistoleros unleashed their highly anticipated and already critically acclaimed new, full album ‘The Mescalito Vampires’ on Special Limited Edition Double 10″ (Dusk n Dawn) Moon coloured Vinyl’s & gatefold sleeve (Includes 2 extra tracks)

Gypsy Pistoleros are best described as being the ideal house band for the fictitious Titty Twister bar of Rodriguez’s From Dusk till 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 is captured to the full with the release of the album they always threatened!

Released on CD Digipak and special limited edition Double 10″ coloured Vinyl Is this Latin Rocks Appetite for Destruction? The Mescalito Vampires was recorded in Black Tree Recording Studios, Tardebigge, Worcestershire.

REVIEWS:

“This (Mescalito Vampires (Welcome to the Hotel de la Muerta)) is actually a reworked and rewritten version of the Eagles ‘Hotel California’ and is quite simply a stroke of genius, I mean, anyone can do a cover version but this is far more than that, although the roots are still visible the rest of the hair has been coloured ‘Pistolero’.” – Martin Granville, Jace Media

”The Pistoleros are sheer musical escapism“ – Malcolm Dome, 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
