Since reviewing the Gypsy Pistolero album that was frontman Lee Pistolero's recent release (Gypsy Pistolero - (Duende) Last of the Pistoleros) I've been giving myself a bit of a crash course on the band.
Turns out they had three albums and an ep out that were well received in rock circles.
Woooooosh. That's the sound of them going over my head.
I'm sort of bemused how they could have past me by, but never mind that because although I missed the party first time they've recently reformed, started recording and best of all are on the road in the UK with LA Guns.
Here's the press blurb and tour dates that Lee sent me through.
Oh yeah, and click on the tour poster for it to enlarge.
