Yesterday, Chris Matthews of Evil Boy Records Limited dropped me a line about a great glam band he represents.
The Gypsy Pistoleros, a mix of glam, sleaze and...flamenco music. A unique sound indeed, the boys in the Gypsy Pistoleros use experiences obtained while living in Spain as a main influence for their music.
If you're not familiar with the U.K. based band, the Gypsy Pistoleros are:
Lee J Pistolero-Lead Vocals
Iggie Pistolero-Lead Guitar
This is not a gimmick people! The Gypsy Pistoleros start a European tour in a matter of days, supporting glam acts like Love/Hate, Bang Tango, Kristy Krash Majors (Pretty Boy Floyd), Faster Pussycat, the Bulletboys, L.A. Guns and Enuff Z'Nuff.
Now, here's the good news. The glam goodness that is the Gypsy Pistoleros will take-over the U.S. this summer. The boys in the band just finished recording Wild, Beautiful, Damned, produced by Joe Gibb. The album has a target release date of June 4, 2007.
On their official Myspace page, www.myspace.com/gypsypistoleros, band members cite Motley Crue, Hanoi Rocks and the Ramones as major influences.
Give the Gypsy Pistoleros a listen. You'll like them!
