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...

Spaghetti Western Orchestra -"The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly"

Thunderosa! -"El Guapos Theme"

Chingon -"Malaguena Salerosa"

3 Balls Of Fire -"The Ecstasy Of Gold"

Artists also do Ennio's psyche/lounge music...

(Mike Patton's) Mondo Cane -"Deep Down"
