Gypsy Pistoleros are due to release their latest single ‘Lost in a Town called Nowhere!’ on Feb 26th on Golden Robot/Riot Records, the first track taken from the upcoming new album, ‘The Mescalito Vampires’.
Described as the album they always promised to make, this release sees the band, who play Hard Rock Hell XIV this coming November, fully embracing their fiery flamenco/rumba passion crossover punk Rock n Roll leanings! The Latin Rock equivalent of Appetite for Destruction, ‘The Mescalito Vampires’ is here.
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!
The new Gypsy Pistoleros line up is –
Gypsy Lee Pistolero – Vox, bad rumba guitar
Mark Westwood (Shadowland, Clive Nolan, GLP) – Great Guitars
Gaz Le Bass – Double Bass (The Delray Rockets)
Jan Vincent Vellazco (Pendragon, Ghost, PIG) – Drums
Kris Jones – Trumpet
