In 2002 four long-time friends (including even some blood relatives) who had been involved in different bands (mostly HC/post HC/rock stuff like Ahimsa, Coalition, Afraid of That Day) started to jam together playing what they had a great affection for their entire lives: ‘70s-influenced stoner rock.Read More...
In 2003 they recorded a demo which turned out to be pretty popular among the slowly growing breed of their fans. Soon they became one of the most active Warsaw bands, crossing all the genres and being present at different types of shows from punk rock to rock’n’roll to hardcore and rocking the nights out like crazy. Every once in a while they hit the road to gig Poland, Lithuania, Germany, ending up in some Czech clubs, making a nice soundtrack to bar fights there. Easy going dudes took it easy. It took them a while to record their very first full length, but when they did (at Serakos Studio, Warsaw, spring 2006) it turned out to be really worth waiting for. The record was called “Lazy” and well... it really was. The title illustrated Elvis’ attitude towards the so-called reality and their music.
The world rolled on, the boys played more gigs and finally there came the time to reveal what was going on in their heads. On “Favourite State Of Mind” the sound is full of space, stylish and the non-obvious guitars are accompanied by multi-layered vocals. Inspirations ranged from The Who, David Bowie, T. Rex to Turbonegro and some more recent swampy stuff from the US. The band employed unconventional recording techniques and sound experiments that could give certain purists a nervous drool. Elvis Deluxe applies a strong rock’n’roll punch to your jaw that will make you hear colours and see the divine beauty of their music.
After the record was finished, the line-up changed slightly. Mechu was replaced on guitar by Bert Trust. This old mate of Elvis’ used to play in Warsaw stoner bands Castor Fiber and Oregano Chino, which makes him a perfect fit for Elvis Deluxe in terms of fascination with roots rock and dirty sound. The dudes have charisma and have the skills and even though they’re taking it easy, they take it seriously. The years of long going friendship and jamming together made them only tighter and hungrier for good shows and the road adventures. They will roll slow and if you stand on their way... well, you can be sure to roll with them...

Bert Trust – guitar
