Be a part of my NEW ALBUM amigos!
This is Spanglish-speaking Flamenco Glam Punk Sleaze Rock N Roll outlaw GYPSY LEE PISTOLERO here and i’m ( No, we!!! I need you lot) all set to release my brand new solo album ‘The Good, The Mad and The Beautiful’, in October 2012.
As former founder, frontman & songwriter of the critically acclaimed ,Gypsy Pistoleros. I left my own band on the eve of our ’Greatest Hits
album launch party two weeks ago. Totally disillusioned with Corporate Music Industry, the bullshit and the constraints of a band.
Here’s Gypsy Pistoleros brief biog
“The Pistoleros are sheer musical escapism" – Classic Rock
“a thrill-a-minute collection of melodic eye patch swagger that smells of exotic spices and forbidden concubines" – Sleazegrinder
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 me, frontman Lee Pistolero, struck on fusing my roots in the British glam punk circuit ( As White Trash we regularly supported The Lords of the New Church/Kill City Dragons,etc) to the traditional sounds of Spain when i was living in Zaragoza during the late-90s.
In Spain i toured as The Last Gang, supporting The Ramones, The Cramps, Dio, UFO, Black Sabbath amongst others. And during my four years living in Zaragoza, i jammed & messed around with Flamenco stars Ketama & Latin Rock Gods ‘Heroes del Silencio’, then i fell in love with the f$$ked up 70’s & 80’s Gypsy Rumba/Pop stars Los Chunguitos & Los Chicos. Then commited sacriledge by fusing these flamenco/rumba licks with punk & dirty Rock N Roll & Sleaze. It went down a storm!
The Gypsy Pistoleros always had a reputation for danger and made history by being the only band to be invited to play at all five Rocklahoma festivals, in Oklahoma, USA May 28th, where we appeared alongside Poison, Whitesnake, Black Label Society,Papa Roach etc where they closed Saturday night after Staind
We toured extensively, playing with the likes of L.A. Guns, Ratt, Dogs d’amour,Bai Bang, Wrathchild, Vains Of Jenna, Twisted Sister, Poison, Vince Neil, Bang Tango, Skid Row, Slaughter, Faster Pussycat, Dokken and ZZ Top, Papa Roach, Staind, Dirty Penny,
The sound was flamenco in a head on collision with punk/rock riffs, pounding bass and thrashing drums. The songs span madly in the best rock ‘n’ roll tradition! With big hooks, attitude, and sleaze. Yet those flamenco breaks got into your head and refused to leave .
So the present.
Just two weeks after leaving my own creation, i pulled in my old White Trash UK writing partner guitarist/Bassist/producer( Clever tosser) Mark Westwood ( Camoora, Neo, Arena,etc) and we have madly put together 20 plus new songs, all the great songs i’d been saving for ‘God knows what?’. All the great ideas & songs that couldnt be done within the constraints of bands & labels, sales,etc, we have begun demoing. Lee Evans ( Leeroy Pistolero) has the drum duties, and Kris Jones is on trumpet.
" This time, i will get it perfect. This will be the pure Flamenco Rumba Punk Glam Sleaze Trash Rock N Roll vision that i set out with! There was no way anyone was gonna f$$k with these tracks. With your help Bandidos, these are pure, twisted & untainted!"
Pledge for amazing exclusives/updates not available anywhere else!
Changes in the music industry and the new ways of releasing quality music are here to stay. After hearing about PledgeMusic, I got really excited! With the success of my old mucker Ginger & his Pledge campaign. I finally realised that something new and fresh does exist ,where the artist can be in direct interaction with the fans without any compromises. ( I have always been open and totally in contact with people interested in my music , something that Record labels & even AEG & Major Rock band mates in the US, tried to discourage?) I want to make music for the people that understand me and my f$$ked up vision.
Deciding to embrace the changes in the music industry that have occurred in the last year, i have turned to Pledge Music and the Bandido family (The Fans, friends, freaks and beautifullly twisted) to make this thing happen. So, check out the pledge rewards please, and become a part of this!!! Because as an Artist, it is all about me & you! Its US! The rest is bullsh$t!
