G.G. Elvis And The T.C.P. is a band of punk rockers influenced by both The King and shock rocker G.G. Allin, best known for his crazy antics like performing naked, peeing, and throwing poop on stage.
The tribute band takes Elvis classic jams, including Viva Las Vegas and Blue Suede Shoes, and turns them into punk rock mash-ups.
According to frontman Eric G.G. Elvis Lara, their music is for both punk and Elvis aficionados, although hardcore Elvis fans dont always get it.
The bandmates which include Elvis of Nazareth, Elvis 56, and Has-Been Elvis sport Elvis wigs and costumes on stage, and although their performances are a spectacle, theyre not quite as crappy as G.G. Allins shows.
Lara has been known to drop trou mid-song, but insists hes never thrown poop at the audience.
Surprisingly, Lara believes Elvis wouldve loved their wacky band while G.G. Allin wouldve hated them.
Their debut album, Back From The Dead, hits stores today (Jun. 24).
