Biography

Started as a project for proverbial “shits and giggles” Alex Goldfarb and Richard Minino (aka Horsebites) from New Mexican Disaster Squad made a valiant attempt at starting a pop-punk band. Their former band was grinding to a halt and their itch to play music together was not yet satiated, so GATORFACE was formed in an attempt to do something new and different. They enlisted the help of fellow Orlando based punks Nick Allam (of the insanely underrated Polluted Youth) and Bryan Quilty to play guitar, and once again Goldfarb and Minino found themselves holding down bass and drum duties as they had for so many years in NMDS. Their chosen genre and focus on simplicity started out because of necessity. While Goldfarb and Minino playing music together was familiar territory, the fact that Alex had never taken on full-time vocal duties in a band was a daunting challenge that took some serious convincing. In 2008 the band began practicing and quickly wrote what would become the “Sick and Stupid” EP (Paper + Plastick). Released on a one-sided 10” with an etched b-side the songs sound like a band trying to get comfortable with what they are doing. An extra song from the same recording session at Crescendo Sound Studios in Gainesville, FL ended up seeing the light of day on the “Incestival” 7” (a four way split featuring New Mexican Disaster Squad, Virgins and Polluted Youth) released on Kiss of Death Records.
