Gypsy Pistoleros was introduced to the mass public during Rocklahoma 2007. They had one of the more interesting and unique releases last year with Wild, Beautiful Damned.
In 2008, the band has remixed and re-released Wild, Beautiful Damned with a couple of extra cuts in the form of Para Siempre. (That’s Forever for you non Spanish speaking folks.)
Which version you may prefer of the CD is up to your tastes. Some of the songs on Para Siempre have been changed up from the original disc. Cuts like The Crazy Loco Loquito I preferred the original version of. The added cuts Chicas Peligrosa, and the cover, Living La Vida Loca are nice additions so it balances out.
If you never got the opportunity to pick up Wild Beautiful Damned, Para Siempre is the way go. You can find copies available on line at CD Inzane.

The Gypsy Pistoleros are:
In January of 2007, UK rockers Gypsy Pistoleros released their first full length disc, Wild, Beautiful, Damned.
The band open the eye of a lot of people, and gained a whole new fan base with their appearance in the Rocklahoma Music Festival.
The Pistoleros mix a little bit of flamenco into their sleazy, glam tunes. The band has a sound that I would call a cross between the punk of The Sex Pistols and the glam of Hanoi Rocks and maybe a dash of early 80’s Motley Crue. The influences are definitely strong in the music, but one thing is for certain, Wild, Beautiful, Damned rocks! This CD sounds like a party waiting to happen….just add tequila. I have quite a few favorites on this record including the tunes: Forever Is Para Siempre, Moonchild and Un Hombre Sin Rostro, Pistolero.
You won’t hear a new glam record that is more unique than this one. It is a very solid effort, and is a disc for all glam fans to check out!
2008 could be a big year for the the Gypsy Pistoleros. They have been invited back to Rocklahoma in 2008, and are releasing their 2nd CD, Para Siempre soon. If it is as good as this release, the band will take the world by storm!
