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 an album they have always threatened!
Gypsy Pistoleros remain something truly unique and interesting in today’s predictable musical landscape. Combining their truly unique mix of flamenco rumba which gleefully collides with old school punk rock ‘n’ roll riffs in a head on collision. 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 hybrid rocks.

“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

Does it work? Are you fucking kidding me? When Kris Jones drops the mariachi trumpet, it’s on!”
BEAVER BUZZ RADIO – Dave Wilks
“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 Hairspray Heaven
“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. Gypsy Pistoleros are the undisputed kings of Flamenco Sleaze”– Pulse Alternative Magazine
This mongrel offspring of fiery flamenco/rumba passion and gritty gutter glam, was born roamin’ somewhere between Barcelona and Worcester. Standing alone in musical ancestry and sum sound, they are one of those most rare acts who can honestly claim the tag ‘unique’…
