the band features some of the “Nardcore” nest including members of NOFX, Agression, Bad Samaritans, Ill Repute, Stalag 13 & Dr. Know.
Formed in the summer 2006 by punk rock guitarist and Elvis Presley aficionado Tony Cortez (Ill Repute) and the dynamic lead guitarist and punk luminary Dave Cassillas (NOFX, Stalag 13 & Agression), G.G. Elvis and the T.C.P. Band actually began as the musical combo “Punk Rawk Elvis”. After several lineup changes, and some soul searching, Cortez enlisted the services of
lead vocalist Eric Lara (Bad Samaritans), legendary punk beat-master Larry White
(Agression, Stalag 13 & Dr. Know), bass-man George “Horhay” Snow (Bad Samaritans
and Jughead’s Revenge), back up singer “Little Sister” Sara Jo Merin,
and the formation of the T.C.P. (Taking
Care of Punk) Band was complete.
After only three hasty rehearsals, G.G. Elvis and the T.C.P. Band made their live debut in Las Vegas at the infamous BYO Records sponsored Punk Rock Bowling Tournament, and the overly enthusiastic crowd was all shook the f*ck up! Since that fateful day, the band has played
many-a-packed house and there ain’t
no turnin’ back.
“Back From The Dead”, their debut, limited edition scratch n’ sniff release, was recorded at 60 Psycho Hum Recording Studios in
