gypsy pistoleros

'The World's Greatest Flamenco Sleaze Glam Rock 'N' Roll band Ever!' is back with a new album collating some of their biggest hits so far alongside new material.

Combining their truly unique mix of flamenco rumba which gleefully collides with old school punk and rock 'n' roll riffs, the Gypsy Pistoleros' first release on Heavy Metal Records, 'Forever Wild, Beautiful And Damned! Greatest Hits Volume 1' is slated for release in March 2012.

This greatest hits collection will be mixed and produced by the legendary Joe Gibb (Jane's Addiction, Funeral For A Friend) at the Mighty Atom Studios. Having proved popular with fans across the UK, US and Europe, the band's signature pounding bass and thrashing drum sound and liberal use of flamenco breaks make the Pistoleros more than just a glam band with big hooks, attitude and sleaze – they make them a completely unique listening experience.

Since forming in 2005, the band have built up a large and fiercely loyal fan base that has closely followed the Gypsy Pistoleros through a tumultuous couple of years. From seeing the band almost sign deals and abort plans for a live album, the only thing missing is new song or two... But the wait for new music is over!

The Gypsy Pistoleros then found themselves making history by being the only band to be invited to play at all five of the massive Oklahoma-based Rocklahoma Rock festivals since 2007, where they played alongside the likes of Motley Crue, Poison and Whitesnake. The band is currently gearing up to tour with LA Guns; more details will be announced in the near future.

Gypsy Pistoleros consist of founding members Lee and Iggie Pistolero alongside Jeff (Pistolero) Williams and Kenny K Doll.

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
