Chuck Mancillas and Tom Slik, real brothers, started jamming together (bass and drums) for fun in the late eighties recording on a Fostex X-15 cassette 4 track recorder. Their real musical lives involved playing in LA rock, new wave and power pop bands in clubs for money and/or for fame (Texas Terri, Killer Crows, Kristian Hoffman Band, Jigsaw Seen, Poe, Cult of One, Harry Dean Stanton, Ruben and the Jets and way more). Collectively, the brothers played and headlined with various acts in virtually (well almost virtually) every club in Los Angeles with various nobodies, has-beens, stars and the who's who of the underground elite. Tom studied bass with the infamous Carol Kaye while Chuck studied with Frank Zappa Alumnus, Ralph Humphries. Their schooling didn’t take away from their exploration of pop culture and human psychology with an Iggy Pop, James Brown, Bubblegum back drop. After saving money by playing drums on records for other artists, Chuck bought a tape machine and mixing board for way too much money. They recorded their first single "Halloweenish" and released the kooky yet funky song as an Orange Vinyl 7". It quickly became a staple on College radio playlists. To this date, their discography includes 5 full length CDs, three EPs and two vinyl 7" records plus inclusion on several compilations. Their eclectic songs have charted on both College, NPR and Satellite radio such as Little Steven's Underground Garage. Their live shows are something to behold as they are joined by multi-instrumentalist, Dan Marfisi (POE. Lowen and Navarro, Jones) and as of February 2018, the brothers are joined by guitarist/engineer Rico Garcia who brings in a funky, swampy flavor. The Drool Brothers are alive and healthy. Their success by way of gaining fans and continuous underground radio airplay encourages their productivity. See discography.
