Punk Veterans collaborate on Punk Rock Elvis tribute

Mental Records is pleased to announce the release of G.G. Elvis and the T.C.P. Band Back From The Dead for worldwide distribution on June 24, 2008. Combining the very best (and worst) of the “King of Rock” Elvis Presley and self-professed “King of Punk” G.G. Allin into a smash up punk rock Elvis tribute the likes of which the world has never seen. This is tight comedy-fused high-intensity music, masterfully mixed with well-known punk rock cover songs of Elvis classics. So in other words… PARTY! …and that has nothing to do with your lame politics either!!!

Hailing from Oxnard , California ( Ventura County just north of L.A. ) 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.

Back From The Dead, their debut, limited edition release, was recorded at 60 Psycho Hum Recording Studios in Medford , Oregon and was produced by Mental Records co-owner, Doug Hill. It includes the controversial never-before-seen DVD exposé with shocking videos, rare interviews, photos, extras and special features. This explosive, gut-wrenching blend of outrageously tight punk infused Elvis classics will leave many a man balled up on the bathroom floor, hysterically choking on his own vomit and begging for more.
