OLDIES SUNDAY: Pinchers – Bandelero (1991)

Happy Easter! While everyone’s out and about, we’re gonna make it real with today’s Oldies Sunday selection. For today’s post, we highlight a classic from one of Dancehall’s most unique voices. His name is Pinchers, and we feature his single, “Bandelero“.

Produced by King Jammys and released through Jammys Records in 1991, Pinchers stepped right out of a Western movie with this one. Calling himself a “Bandolero” (Spanish for Bandit), we get a track that makes reference to “Gringos“, Pinchers claiming that his lyrics are as sharp as the blade that Zorro owns, and being recognized as a champion. His flow was unique at the time paired with a bit of singing, and they helped to make “Bandelero” a hit. “Bandelero” went on to become one of Pinchers’ most memorable tracks, and is still enjoyed today. Pinchers is still active, and he takes his music from Kingston, Jamaica, to El Paso, Texas, to various parts of the world. A happy belated Birthday to Pinchers as well (April 12).

thank you pinchers for this classic!
