Peeling Grey was formed in June of 2008. The band made its debut live performance at Fonzfest with The Clash City Rockers (Clash tribute) on April 18th, 2009. A string of live shows all over the Los Angeles area slowly kickstarted local interest in the band, particularly from the underground Indie, Post Punk, and Goth scenes.
A demo EP released in August of 2009 titled “The Peeling Sessions” was recorded distributed worldwide, which included the United States, Germany, and England. This resulted in growing exposure and airplay on NME Internet Radio in the UK.
A second demo EP of pre-production tracks was released titled “Pre-Worlds”. “The World’s Not Sorry” was released in February of 2011. The record release event at Bordello was another milestone in Peeling Grey’s growing local popularity. Greg Reely known for his work with Sarah McLachlan, Front Line Assembly, and Skinny Puppy is noted for the mastering of “TWNS”.
The “James Quarterly” music video would focus on the intended storyline depicted in the lyrics, and premiere at Release the Bats, April of 2012.

Hyena Motorcade was formed in Orange County, CA during the summer of 2009 by Ric Kaley and Mark Allen with bassist Art Agunod joining Ric and Mark shortly afterwards after the Mixed Martial Arts media group TapouT Magazine/MMA Worldwide where Mark worked was about to wrap filming on their weekly series set to be aired on HDNet. The show’s Executive Director and Cannes Film Festival Award winner James Hergott approached Mark in regards to placing the band in the show’s soundtrack after hearing a rough guitar demo of what was later to be the song “Shadows”. The band went straight into the studio to record the track which was included in six of the season’s ten episodes and the positive attention the song and band received from the TV show was enough to warrant the band continuing to write new material and to solidify the band lineup for live shows with bands such as Bow Wow Wow and The Fixx…
The current band lineup consists of:
Ric Kaley (Vocals, Keyboards, Saxophone)
Mark Allen (Guitar)
Art Agunod (Bass)
Alberto Campos (Drums)

Kommunity FK was created by Patrik Mata in 1978 in the midst of the LA punk explosion.
Unknowingly, Patrik’s new musical genre became a cross between post punk against a darker gloom that became the genesis of American gothic/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 has performed second billing to many ov the UK Goth bands that have toured throughout the United States, especially on the West Coast , during the very first wave ov the Gothik & Batcave era & you can read this long list on their official website through the link shown below.
Patrik Mata, now fully armed with his own recording studio (Vision & The Voice Studios) where Mata has continued Kommunity FK as a groundbreaker within the world of music.
Mata not only records new Kommunity FK pieces and remixes at the Vision & The Voice Studios daily, but also works for clientelle such as movie sound tracks and other artist material.
Mata also DJs for numerous clubs including the first reopening of the Los Angeles based “Bat Cave”.
Kommunity FK performs internationally and records new material in the same tradition as they always have since 1978- But now with a 21st Century Deathrock twist.
