1985.06.01 O.N. Klub, Hollywood, CA - Psi Com

Post by Mike » Mon Nov 02, 2009 1:47 am

I've been going through my research this weekend and I found a new Psi Com show.

I actually first stumbled across this show in January of '07.
The problem was the info was in German and I couldn't get a good translation.

Thanks to kc I can now read what was right in front of me all this time. :)
KOMMUNITY FK's next show was in some club in Hollywood called "Continental Club". The opener was some of this "wanna-be-goth-clohting-wearers" called Psi Com. Their lead singer was called Perry Farrell. As I mentioned before I had just found out that my drummer -who had worked for 9 years with me - had secretly practiced with him... and Perry followed me (not that I had known) everywhere; and now, in 2004 he even called me his inspiration in his "Jane's Addiction Biography"! Ever since 1983/84 he wanted my drummer badly to work with him and even got him to work with him in the early Jane's Addiction days. You'll be able to read all that once the book gets published this summer. It was just after this show when I couldn't stand my band mates behaviors and the inner tension and I decided that this had to be KOMMUNITY FK's last performance.

I'll know for sure when I get my hands on the flyer but it looks like we have another new show for the Tour Dates section.

This show and the one listed as being

1985.XX.XX Continental Club, Hollywood, CA - Psi Com

are actually one and the same.

The O.N. Klub moved from its Mod hangout home on W. Sunset Blvd. to The Continental Club at 1743 N. Cahuenga in Hollywood around the beginning of 1985, due to overpopularity (it was a huge Mod hangout) and subsequent Cops attention.

I was at this show - they had the EP for sale at it, for the very first time. The lineup had changed and I did not like the Rockist direction they were going in after the lineup shuffle and the removal of Rich Evac's big Peter Hook-ian bass stylings, so I chose not to purchase the EP. I still don't have a copy - my mistake, eh? :biggrin:

This show is actually the O.N. Klub show from June 1st 1985.

1985.06.01 O.N. Klub, Silver Lake, CA Psi-Com

See that show's thread for discussion of why I claim this to be the case.

Awesome info Greg! :applause:

I'd not made the connection and probably wouldn't have in a million years.
The info you've provided in regard to the O.N. Klub's location change is the clincher and I will make the necessary changes to our database based on the info you've provided.

Thank you so much for your help in nailing this down!

Thanks again for getting this straightened out for us Greg.

It's truly a pleasure to have someone who lived these early shows come by and give us the 411 needed.

I have removed this show show from the gig listing based on the excellent info provided by Greg.
I have also changed the O.N. Klub's location based on Greg's info from Silver Lake to Hollywood.

In addition in an effort to keep this section tidy and to help to alleviate confusion I have merged the two threads for this show into one.

I still need to add the PATRIK MATA / KOMMUNITY FK info back into the shows info page and I'm working on that.
