  • 09.09 13TH CHIME + KOMMUNITY FK + OTZI

    Legendary UK goth outfit 13TH CHIME play their 1st-ever LA gig! Formed in 1980. Between 1981-82 13TH CHIME released 3 singles Coffin Maker, Cursed and Fire. 13th Chime are drawn to morbidsubjects. Early pictures featured coffins and screaming witches.The group folded in 1984. In 2009, Sacred Bones released 2 LP's and discography collection. The group reformed in 2015. In 2016, 13th Chime released Noir. Noir is the connection between the past and present  

    Listen to 13TH CHIME.

    Classic LA deathrock goth outfit KOMMUNITY FK return to Lost Angeles for a rare live show to celebrate their 40th anniversary of blasphemous existence! KOMMUNITY FK was created by Patrik Mata in 1978 in the midst of the LA punk explosion. Patrik's new musical genre became a cross between post punk against a darker gloom that became the genesis of American gothik/deathrock. Kommunity FK's beginnings were raw. Mata's influences of William S. Burroughs, Jean Cocteau, Salvador Dali, and early Bowie were woven through a dreamy musical side combined with experimental synthesized art punk. Mata's visionary soundscapes were all his own. The original pronunciation of Mata's new creation was "Kommunity Fuck". Very daring for the time when the later part of the band name was the top word of what was then known as the FCC's 'seven words not to be uttered' list. Changed by Mata to "Kommunity FK" so promoters back in the day had no problem placing the headliners name on their marquees. The FK has stuck throughout the decades ever since the bands live performance inception. Kommunity FK performs internationally and releases new material in the same tradition as they always have since 1978 with a 21st Century Deathrock twist... ~We Will Not Fall~

    Listen to KOMMUNITY FK.

    “Badass Oakland deathrock” - Cvlt Nation

    “Dark and (heavy on the) dreamy side of post punk” - Maximum RocknRoll
    “This Oakland trio has been burning a path of ecstatic destruction everywhere they go” - Stereo Embers
    "Haunting three-piece from Oakland channels the spirit of Juju-era Siouxie, Euro synth wailers and the tortured souls of early humyns trapped in glacial ice." - KDVS

  • 09.16 RUBELLA BALLET + READERSHIP HOSTILE + LUX + FATAMORGANA [members of BELGRADO]

    RUBELLA BALLET formed in 1979 by Sidation (Flux of Pink Indians), Zillah Minx, Pete Fender & Gem Stone (Fatal Microbes) at the Crass gig at Conway Hall where Crass invited the audience to use their equipment and finish off the evening doing their own thing as they wanted and left the crowd in charge. So Sid being 6” 9 inches tall and at the front of the stage climbed up with Zillah and jumped on Penny’s drum kit, Zillah grabbing Steve’s mic, Pete & Gem jumping straight up and taking the bass and guitar, plugged in and started playing. Sounding like rather organised chaos this was the start of a very colourful part of what was and is the British anarcho punk scene. 

    Listen to RUBELLA BALLET.

    READERSHIP HOSTILE is a cathartic collision of deathrock, goth, early punk and contemporary psych propelled by aneffervescent, force-of-nature frontwoman. Darkly ornate yet visceral, the band ambushed its native Los Angeles with a string of startling performances in 2013, before bottling its organic on-stage aura into a brutally beautiful debut EP.   

    Listen to READERSHIP HOSTILE.

    Anarchopunk group from Barcelona / UK. With members of Sect, Nobody, The Love Triangle, Nightmare.

    Listen to LUX.

    Fatamorgana is a phenomenon of optical illusion that appears on the horizon or in the desert. Far objects appear reflected on a smooth surface as if you were contemplating a liquid surface that, in reality, does not exist. Created by the total reflection of the light when crossing layers of hot air of different density causes the perception of the inverted image. [Translated from the Spanish via Google Translate...sorry for any inaccuracies!]

    Don't miss RUBELLA BALLET's 1st LA show since 1986!

    This will sell out. No question about it.

  • 09.23 Jay Aston's GENE LOVES JEZEBEL [from the UK] + GLAARE + CREUX LIES

    Jay Aston's UK-based version of GENE LOVES JEZEBEL returns to the US for the first time in over a decade!! This, on the heels of a new record, "Dance Underwater," released last fall -- the band's first studio album of new material in 14+ years.  This line-up of the band features  Jay Aston (vocals), James Stevenson (guitars), Pete Rizzo (bass) and Chris Bell (drums) — ie the same members that have created extraordinary GLJ songs for 30 years now.  

    Jay Aston founded GLJ in London in 1981 and quickly gained a fervent following.  Promise, the band’s trailblazing debut, appeared in 1983.  Though he shared vocals with his brother Michael, Jay was the primary songwriter.  Jay’s songs, spotlighting his uninhibited and highly distinctive singing style, made GLJ instantly memorable and identifiable.  Immigrant followed in 1985, marking Pete Rizzo’s first recordings with the band; his inventive and complex bass lines instantly became an essential part of the GLJ sound.  The band matured even further on Discover (1986), when James Stevenson joined and demonstrated his talent for delivering guitar work that is both melodic and powerful.  (Discover was also the first GLJ album that Peter Walsh was involved in, starting a symbiotic relationship that continues with their new album.)  Then, on The House of Dolls (1987), Chris Bell joined the band full-time, his drumming providing a flawless foundation.  Michael was largely absent from recording that album, resulting in the four-piece incarnation of Jay, Pete, James and Chris that is still going strong to this day.

    The band will of course also be playing their still chilling dancefloor singalong hits like 'Desire,' 'Bruises,' 'Heartache,' 'Sweetest Thing' and 'Motion Of Love'! for the PTP audience here in Lost Angeles. Revisiting these early tracks you quickly hear the influence of the band on their Goth contemporaries like The Chameleons, Echo & The Bunnymen and The Sound, as well their forward-thinking protogaze guitar style later made popular by House Of Love, Pale Saints and the dreamier contingent of 90s shoegaze bands...

    Listen to GENE LOVES JEZEBEL.

    GLAARE is a four-piece post-punk band from Los Angeles. Cherry picking the best elements of darkwave, dream pop and goth-rock, they have been a burgeoning force in the LA scene since their formation in 2012. In a scene where style often blurs out substance, Glaare meticulously craft real songs with real hooks and intricate yet subtle arrangements.
    Featuring members of Deth Crux and Black Mare citing influences like Slowdive, The Chameleons, and Killing Joke.
     
     
    Revered for use of reverb-laden guitar work, creative synth structures, and dynamic vocals akin to the style of many early shades of 80’s pop darkness, CREUX LIES are known as an Alternative / Post-punk / New Romantic-esque project from Sacramento, California. Created out of the band formerly known as NMBRSTTN, singer Ean Clevenger, guitarist Barry Crider, synth/electronics David Wright, drummer Topher Snyder, and bassist Kyle Vorst have focused their creative vision toward a new path of electro-drenched melancholy sonic styling. In late 2017, Creux Lies completed their first full-length, recorded at the creative fantasy-land known as Earthtone Studios in their home-city under the creative care of producer/engineer extraordinaire Patrick Hills, dues out soon on Cleopatra Records. Sharing stages with a roster of notable acts such as Clan of Xymox, Drab Majesty, Soft Kill, and others has encouraged Creux Lies to develop their own headlining performance antics, including powerful performances in-step with a dramatic visual/light experience.

  • 09.30 TRISOMIE 21 + SOFT KILL + ACTORS

    Centered around brothers Philippe and Hervé LomprezTrisomie 21 (often abbreviated to T21) are a French cold wave group who have endured since the early '80s, spanning styles such as brooding, experimental post-punk as well as a more danceable synth pop sound. The two Lomprez brothers were initially joined by keyboard player Jean-Michel Matuszak (who also served as their manager) and bassist Pascal Tison, and their music was influenced by dark post-punk acts like Joy Division and the Cure as well as the experimentation of the Residents and Yello. Belgian label Stechak released T21's debut mini-album, Le Repos des Enfants Heureux, in 1983. Bassist Laurent Dagnicourt replaced Tison for the group's 1984 full-length Passions Divisées. Emphasizing the band's rhythm section while keeping their keyboard-heavy experimentation intact, the album included the haunting "La Fête Triste," which would emerge as one of their signature tunes. The Lomprez brothers secretly returned to the studio in 2017, with early member Tison contributing to some of the sessions. The full-length Elegance Never Dies was released by the group's own Chromo Music Production by the end of the year, and the group toured throughout Europe in support of the album. Additionally, the American label Dark Entries released Chapter I-IV, a vinyl box set containing expanded editions of T21's first four records, which were also reissued individually. The group also released a three-CD box set of early material titled Originally in 2018.

    Listen to TRISOMIE 21.

    Haunted by the ghosts of The Cure, Killing Joke and Joy Division, THE SOFT KILL's sound is full of skittering single-note guitar runs,  propulsive dirges and melodic art damage. IF you were among the 1500 or so who crammed into The Regent last fall for Part Time Punks when they opened for ChameleonsVox, or the 900+ who crammed into The Echoplex for either Clan Of Xymox or Modern English earlier this year then you already know they're also INCREDIBLE live.... And their new LP, "Savior" is one of Part Time Punks favorite records of 2018, so surely you've been hearing that IF you ever tune into the PTP radio show on KXLU 88.9FM in LA Thursday afternoons...

    Listen to SOFT KILL.

    The term "post-punk", like many terms with a similar prefix, is firmly planted in a time in history, and signifies an added precision and experimentation to a thrilling genre that has echoed forward in both style and attitude. The Jason Corbett-led outfit ACTORS are standing on the shoulders of titans with their brand of the style, and could almost be referred to as "post-post-punk".   

    Listen to ACTORS.

  • 10.26 EXPLODED VIEW + EXEK + SONODA

    Exploded View is a new collaborative project helmed by the UK-born, Berlin-based political-journalist-turned-musician Anika (Invada Records / Stones Throw). After playing a string of 2014 solo shows in Mexico with a backing lineup composed of local producers Martin Thulin, Hugo Quezada and Amon Melgarejo, Anika and her new bandmates discovered a chemistry that they simply had to capture on tape.

    Listen to EXPLODED VIEW.

    Melbourne’s EXEK buck the trend for every Australian band to have a record released in the 2010’s by not being a psych-rock outfit. In fact, they’re an intriguing and smart group with shades of ESG, Public Image Limited and Melbourne royalty The Birthday Party. Tracks like ‘Weight Loss (Henry’s Dream)’ have more groove in their little finger than King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard had across the seven million albums they released in 2017.

    Listen to EXEK.

    The Los Angeles-based ensemble SONODA suh-NO-duh) is the full band realization of Lisa Sonoda’s bedroom project. Lisa’s first solo release, Clearing (Never Anything Records, 2017), is a densely layered set of 18 songs— taking form amidst fluttering synthesizer textures and reverberant orchestration. The full live band expands on these songs with six members each shaping the blooming melodies and stereophonic wash that defines Sonoda. A live full-length album, 'Karaoke Life' is due out on Never Content Records in the fall of 2018.

  • 11.04 CLAN OF XYMOX + CURSE MACKEY + SECOND STILL

    Listen to CLAN OF XYMOX.

    Austin based artist Curse Mackey is best known as lead singer and sample banger of industrial supergroup PIGFACE and tribal industrial act EVIL MOTHERS, and as a member of My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult. Mackey has recently launched a solo electronic industrial/darkwave project that debuted at the COLD WAVES FESTIVAL 2016 in Chicago which includes new material and revamps of classic Pigface and Evil Mothers songs (including Spider Sex and Car Wrecks). Curse's sound is a future forward homage to the surrealistic side of industrial music, with doom fueled drones, slithering synth pulsations and dirty-minded beats layered upon hypnotic noise manipulations, scream of conscious lyrical prose as well as classic Wax Trax-era industrial dance tonalities that evoke the ghosts of early Skinny Puppy,  Lustmord, Coil, and the iconic projects Mackey has been a part of. 

    Listen to CURSE MACKEY. 

    "Like looking at a snowflake under a microscope; beautiful crystalline ice in exquisite contrast to the black void that lies beyond." (SECOND STILL, according to the venerable Lord Venom).

TONITE we celebrate the vinyl release of the band's debut LP.  One of PTP's favorite bands in the country right now! Come & see & hear why....

They also released several albums on the Cherry Red label, making a notable appearance on that label's well known ‘Pillows and Prayers’ compilation. Though The Monochrome Set split in 1985 the next decade saw several reunions for both live gigs and further studio recordings, their album release count now being well into double figures. After a hiatus of over a decade the band reformed full time in 2010 and have since toured all over the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA, whilst also releasing five new, critically acclaimed, studio albums, the most recent, ‘Maisieworld’, on the German ‘Tapete’ label in February this year. 2018 sees the 40th year since the band formed and they will be gigging worldwide to celebrate this.
