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.
