“one of the hardest things to achieve in music – a unique sound. Endearingly spicy, they leave you wanting more.” Steve BeeBee Planet Rock
"the Greatest Flamenco Punk Glam Rock band ever, as they advertise themselves, are indeed that. They are unique in looks, and also in sound. Go and see the Pistoleros, you will not be disappointed." Haydn Wiltshire FRAME Music “Hanoi Rocks-like glam punk ... some real quality there” - Midlands rocks
"Imagine the house band from ‘From Dusk Til Dawn’ jamming with ZZ Top, a youthful Guns ‘N’ Roses and the Gypsy Kings and you get this. Latino fuelled punk rock doesn’t get much better than this" - Getreadytorock.
Gypsy Pistoleros are a thrill-a-minute collection of melodic eye-patch swagger that smells of exotic spices and forbidden concubines. The Gypsy Pistoleros sound like Hanoi Rocks, if Hanoi Rocks were sultans and snakecharmers- Sleazegrinder - Classic Rock Magazine

" GYPSY PISTOLEROS are "The World's Greatest Flamenco Punk Glam Rock band Ever!"
Gypsy Pistoleros are still something truly unique and interesting in today’s predictable musical landscape.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.
"Duende a go go loco" the new album is going to be hailed as the band's masterpiece; an album that brings together all facets of this unique mongrel offspring of fiery flamenco passion and gritty gutter glam Punk. The Gypsy Pistoleros defy the rules, born roaming somewhere between Zaragoza and Worcester, brought into the world to a soundtrack stack-heeled anthems of sleazy ‘70s Glam.
The Gypsy Pistoleros have always had a wild rock n roll reputation and played five Rocklahoma festivals 2007-11, in Oklahoma, USA , where they appeared alongside Motley Crue, Guns n Roses, Poison, ZZ top, Twisted sister, Faster Pussycat, Vain, Papa Roach, Whitesnake, Skid Row, Black Label Society, everyone. Normally closing each night!
They have toured extensively, playing with the likes of L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, Adler’s Appetite, UFO, Motorhead, Ratt, Dogs D'amour, Dirty Penny, Bang tango, Wrathchild, Vains Of Jenna, Twisted Sister, Poison, Vince Neil, Bang Tango, Skid Row, Slaughter, Faster Pussycat, Dokken and ZZ Top.
Upon returning to music in 2020 after a ten-year break (Theatre, Drama degree, film career) a clean and now 4 years sober Gypsy Lee Pistolero, went about reinventing the band, by forming a real gang from Worcester. Ditching the past L.A Guns support band tag and fully becoming the Greatest Flamenco Punk Glam Rock band ever!
The legend Dave Draper (The Wildhearts) plays all guitar on studio recordings! Live it features new showman of a guitarist Shane Pistolero Sparkz and the total powerhouse rhythm section of Kerry White (Bass, from the Suzi Quatro School of Bass) and the hard hitting, whirlwind that is Craig Sharpe (Drums)
The only rule musically, was that there are no rules. Straight back into the limelight, the band signed a 'Greatest hits' album deal release with Golden Robot Records, then released the Latin, mariachi flavoured 'The Mescalito Vampires' after moving to Off Yer Rocka Records. The new album will be released through the mighty Earache Records.
Debuting at Lakefest 2021 Festival headlining the BBC Introducing stage, they then went on to appear on the main stages at Hard Rock Hell Sleaze Fest and Hard Rock Hell, this year saw a full headlining U.K Tour after a return to HRH Sleaze (Mike Monroe, Hardcore Superstar, Crazy Lixx) and in November a show stealing Hard Rock Hell Fest return alongside The Darkness, Skid Row, Ugly Kid Joe , a fantastic reception at Planet rock winters's end! 2023, then another storming show at HRH AOR Fest alongside Crashdiet and Reckless Love. The rest of the year will see a step up to the next level in every respect. Watch this space!
The new album ‘Duende a Go Go Go’ has been recorded , mixed and produced by fast-rising legend Dave Draper (The Wildhearts, Nickleback, Kerbdog, Terrorvision, The Professionals) at The Old Cider Press Studios, Pershore.

Quotes from radio and press:
"one of the hardest things to achieve in music – a unique sound" - Steve BeeBee Planet Rock
“Gypsy Pistoleros are a thrill-a-minute collection of melodic eye-patch swagger that smells of exotic spices and forbidden concubines. The Gypsy Pistoleros sound like Hanoi Rocks, if Hanoi Rocks were sultans and snakecharmers- Sleazegrinder”- Classic Rock Magazine
"Another deft dose of Latin laced, Mariachi sleaze. A Day of the dead, guillotine theatre with cinematic Morricone pretensions. Contrived, preposterous, irresistible" - CLASSIC ROCK
"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." - Paul Thorley Maximum volume music
"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 Mediterranean energy, a New York Dolls raw glam spark and a surplus of prime G ’n’ R attitude!" - Planet Mosh
