TKO is a Seattle based rock/metal band formed in 1977.
Brad Sinsel formed TKO in 1977 with Rick Pierce. Two years later, TKO released its debut LP, "Let It Roll", and by 1981, the band was headlining shows at Seattle and touring as the opening act for AC/DC, Van Halen, Heart, The Kinks and Cheap Trick. TKO went through several personnel changes before recording its best - known album "In Your Face", in 1984, and its final album, "Below the Belt", in 1986. TKO broke up in 1987, and individual members went on to pursue other projects. In 1997, the band reunited for a rare performance as part of Seattle's Pain in the Grass concert series. The band reissued their albums through Metal Mayhem Music, and their Northwest Passage show in 2001 was in celebration of the Seattle band's best works.
