Band Alert: Psycho Gypsy

pyschogypsy.jpgIt's finally Saturday, glam fans.

To celebrate, I'd like to introduce you to some new (old) music.

 

Psycho Gypsy isn't really a new band, they've been around since 1992. The band was formed in Phoenix, and later relocated to the Sunset Strip. They opened for major bands like Cinderella, Poison, Warrant...and even Tuff! They sound like a mix of Faster Pussycat and Pretty Boy Floyd and look just as great.

The band broke-up in 2000, but is back with an all-new line-up featuring singer and guitarists Eddie Electra and Timmy Tantrum plus bassist Josh J. The newest incarnation of the glam band is still looking for a drummer.

If the name Eddie Electra sounds familiar, that's because he was once involved with the Peppermint Creeps.

Occasionally, Metal Express Radio plays a Psycho Gypsy tune. It's through Metal Express that I learned of this unique bunch of musicians. I've put in an interview request, so hopefully we can learn a little more about the future plans of Psycho Gypsy.

Nice find Allyson! They sound like a cool band. I'll check out their Myspace.

They're not the most original thing on earth, but they do have a little swagger which keeps them from feeling too contrived. I tend to like these grittier bands more than the Poisons and Warrants and Trixters, etc who feel very planned in all that they do.

I've always thought Psycho Gypsy was a better band than Peppermint Creeps whom sound like a mix of a really bad "Green Day" and nails scraping down a chalkboard!

Better songs,better band in my opinion.

This band is retarded, Cinderella was retarded, all those idiotic, limp-dick "glam" bands sucked the big one. They couldn't write songs worth a damn, they couldn't play worth a damn and time has proven their irrelevancy due to the fact they're all pretty-much forgotten by everyone except strippers in their 40s and failed, never-were, loser musicians in the same age range. Have some dignity, you pathetic twits, and move on.
