Biography

It all began in 2002 in Paris, when Revlon, a guitar player in love with Scandinavian Rock & Roll and US Punk Rock, decides to found the first sleazy punk band in France. It takes nearly a year of searching in Parisian streets and shabby strip clubs to find the right people who will become Tracy Gang Pussy. They soon record 2 demos and start touring in bars and small clubs of the French Capital.
The first album, "Born to lose, live to win" is released in 2004, a self-produced cd made with lots of sweat and booze, 11 tracks of glam punk & roll that may remind you of Backyard Babies or The Hellacopters with a 1-2-3-4 Ramones touch. The new LP "Black" is recorded live in 4 days by Francis Caste in Paris and released by Apokalypse Records in 2005. It’s energic, raw and tough Punk Rock with a dark touch that gives a devastating rage to the new songs !

Supported by Rocksound Magazine, Rock One, Myspace (TGP headlines the first Myspace festival in Europe), the band starts the "Black Tour" in January 2006 in France, Germany, UK, Belgium, Italy, Romania, Switzerland and the Netherlands with the likes of SKID ROW, PSYCHOPUNCH, THE BLACK HALOS, THE EXPLOITED and BOMBSHELL ROCKS. Revlon & Regan sign for an endorsement with the best of guitars legend : GIBSON!
The pussies are back in the studio in January 2007 to record their third album for the label Active Entertainment. "Paris Sucks” is mixed by the one and only Tomas Skogsberg (Backyard Babies, The Hellacopters...). With those 13 energic and darker tracks, the band is now ready to go back on the road.
The "Can't Stop That Rock n'Roll" tour begins with the GIVE IT A NAME festival with bands like AFI, JIMMY EAT WORLD, ENTER SHIKARI, NEW FOUND GLORY or AIDEN and goes with more than 100 dates all around Europe (Scandinavian, Germany, Russia, France, Czech Republic, Poland and many more...) with CRYSTAL PISTOL, RADIO DEAD ONES, FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND, REVOLUTION MOTHER or ENEMY ROSE.

In 2008, TGP is now looking for a new record deal that can make them heard as loud, and as far as they deserve...TGP start their recording of the new album called « NUMBER4 » on September 15th until November 15th 2008 at Studio Sainte Marthe, Paris. The new album is produced by François Caste. 12 songs and more 40 minutes very melodic, with a dark touch and still very catchy...
They support Swedish band, BACKYARD BABIES on October 6th 2008 at La Locomotive, Paris and MILLENCOLIN during their french tour on November 8,9,10th.
Bad news !! After 6 years with TRACY GANG PUSSY, Regan left the band for personal reasons.
Please welcome the new singer : Lucky.
“Number4” will be available worldwide on download via ITUNES on Jan 26th 2009. The French release will be out on April 3rd 2009 in limited box edition to 2000 copies with the record company, APOKALYPSE RECORDS.

The new tour called “Chaos Rock’n’roll tour 2009” and supported by Ox Fanzine and Live Gigs.de starts on October 2009 with more than 40 gigs all around Europe (Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Czech Republic and France).
