“Saddle up Commancheros, we ride!”
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 glam band ever. And that’s just a fact. If you don’t believe me, listen to this.”

Gypsy Pistoleros have burst onto the rock scene with their unique Flamenco Rumba Punk Rock n Roll Rock sound & style, one of the most exciting new bands around, wowing everyone that comes into contact with them.
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.
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.
“The Pistoleros are a band who live up to their own hype, as they tick all of the boxes they attribute to themselves, and then some, with some of the most infectious, sleaziest, dirtiest, rock ‘n’ roll vibes around, all mixed with enough dust to bury a spaghetti western set several times over.”
