The 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're one of those most rare acts who honestly can claim the tag: 'unique.'
The insane inspiration came from front-man Lee Pistolero, who struck on fusing his roots in the British glam punk circuit. The Gypsy Pistoleros always had a reputation for danger and made history by being the only band to be invited to play at all five Rocklahoma festivals, in Oklahoma, USA; on May 28th 2011, they appeared alongside Poison, Whitesnake, Black
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, Vains Of Jenna, Twisted Sister, Poison, Vince Neil, Bang Tango, Skid Row, Slaughter, Faster Pussycat, Dokken and ZZ Top, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Love/Hate, Staind, Dirty Penny.
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.
