Cool Italian Western Rock Bands!

For all you "KILL BILL" and 'Spaghetti Western' fans out there, here are modern groups that perform Italian Western soundtrack music.

Ennio Morricone is familiar to hepcats as the radical who threw out syrupy strings and injected insanity into film scores with jaw harps, surf guitars, druidic chants, avant noise, and percussive typewriters.

Many rock bands emulate this sound, including Muse, Mars Volta, Calexico, and Queens of the Stone Age. Now other bands go right to the source...
