GYPSY LEE PISTOLERO & The Gypsy Pistoleros Release 'Beautiful Disaster' The Full 32 Track Story ( Antloogy). One Of The Most Important Flamenco Rock Albums Ever!
Gypsy Lee Pistolero & The Gypsy Pistoleros 32 track anthology is released 25th Nov. The complete story & collection. Still something truly unique and interesting in today's predictable musical landscape. A sound and style that mixed sleazy glam rock with flamenco influences and a shout out to Mexican folklore and Spanish tendencies. Now there's very,very few bands you can think of that even come close to this unique style For the first & last time, the whole story is here!
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.
GYPSY LEE PISTOLERO & the Gypsy Pistoleros release 'Beautiful Disaster' the full 32 track story ( Antloogy). One of the most important Flamenco Rock albums ever!
This mongrel offspring of fiery flamenco passion and gritty gutter glam, the Gypsy Pistoleros' were born roamin' somewhere between Barcelona and Birmingham, brought into the world to a soundtrack stack-heeled anthems of sleazy 70s America. Standing alone in musical ancestry and sum sound, they were one one of those most rare acts who honestly could claim the tag 'unique'.
The insane inspiration came from frontman & songwriter Gypsy Lee Pistolero who begin wielding this unique sound whilst living in Zaragoza ( Spain) whilst supporting The Ramones in 1993.
'Beautiful Disaster' is the full 32 track anthology of all Gypsy Pistoleros recorded songs( All produced by Joe Gibb -Catatonia, Janes Addiction, The Kinks,etc) and GLP's subsequent solo work, with long time friend, producer & guitarist Mark Westwood ( Neo, Shadowland, Caamora)

Label Society, Papa Roach, etc where they closed Saturday night after Staind
They toured extensively, playing with the likes of L.A. Guns (Both), Ratt, Dogs d'amour,Bai Bang, Wrathchild, Vains Of Jenna, Twisted Sister, Poison, Vince Neil, Bang Tango, Skid Row, Slaughter, Faster Pussycat, Dokken and ZZ Top, Papa Roach, Staind, Dirty Penny,
