The Local Lick is all about featuring a rock band from our listening area, Northern California/Northern Nevada, that is either signed or unsigned…if they come from our beautiful area, they deserve the recognition. This week’s Local Lick is a three-piece Reno “Psychobilly” band called Los Pistoleros.
Cuffed pants, rolled sleeves, upright bass, slap shots, tattoos, choppy sideburns, hairdos you’d see in the movie Grease…these 3 guys have it all! When I first encountered Los Pistoleros, they were playing at a local venue and having what could only be described as the best time on the face of the planet. So, who are they?
Los Pistoleros started in 2010 bringing psychobilly to Reno’s under ground music seen. The O.G line up was a four man op featuring Chris Chamberlain vox/guitar Julio Giraldo vox/lead guitar Andy A.K.A Slap Nasty upright bass/backing vox and Spencer Eldridge drums/backing vox. They came out with their first album in 2011 self titled, recorded at Dogwater studio and later in 2013 came out with Devil In The Mirror. They’re currently a three man band with new songs and revamps which will shred your ear holes and rattle your brain leaving you begging for more!
