In the year 1964, The primarily Italian greaser gangs in the West Town area such as: Gaylords, C-Notes and Lazy Gents squashed their differences after they saw an immediate rise of Puerto Rican gangs around them. The creation of the Latin Kings became perceived threat to the West Town area. The Italian gangs were also having lots of issues with Polish, Irish and German gangs like Playboys, Ventures and Pulaski Park, therefore, a unity was created to fight against common adversaries.
In the year 1969 the alliance was taken a step further when Gaylords, C-Notes and Lazy Gents made the alliance official known as G.C.G or Gaylords, C-Notes and Gents. At this same time the G.C.G was able to draw up a truce with the P.V.P alliance although that was unnamed until 1971.
In 1971 the G.C.G was replaced for the most part by the W.P.O or White Power Organization when all north side white gangs brought about a cease fire so they could focus on the growing black and Puerto Rican gangs growing on the north side.
To symbolize this alliance each of the three gangs wore three stripes on the left arm of their sweaters. The C-Notes had three green stripes. The Gaylords had three blue stripes and the Lazy Gents had three purple stripes.
