Pistolero Of The Apocalypse was the song that inspired Nathan to start a band with Greg. Pistolero started off as a cover of Sergei Rachmaninoff's Prelude in G Minor, recorded in January 2010.
The song was created for Nathan's music coursework. He had to write a song that fulfilled the a brief stating that it needed:
- To start with an instrumental riff that occures throughout the piece.
- Features good use of tonailty and rhythm.
- Uses ICT and/or appropriate vocals.
After trying to make a song out of Last Flight To Alaska, he gave up and instead worked on 'GD Song', which quickly became Pistolero.
Many different titles for the song were suggested, but is was finally chosen as Pistolero of the Apocalypse. The name is taken from a Red Dwarf episode titled 'Gunmen of the Apocalypse'. Pistolero is spanish for gunmen.
Nathan ordered a vinyl test-press of the song on a see-through 7" vinyl. It was backed with an 'Alternative Version', specially created for this press.
'Pistolero of the Apocalypse' was recorded using Magix Music Maker 12. All parts were recorded seperately, then layered on top of each other. Nathan plays all parts.

Like cowboys of the future they raid us day and night To cause mayhem with their laser guns is their greatest delight Dust Spirals between empty buildings The world has lost it's vitality The Pistolero of the Apocalypse are Riding, scourge of all humanity! "Have you seen my mother?" No, I Gunned her down, they have no sence of right or wrong Like a plague upon this sweet old town. Like cowboys of the future they raid us day and night To cause mayhem with their laser guns is their greatest delight The war of the world raged on until all was lost The curse of The Pistolero is the suffered cost
