The Weirdos
The Weirdos
The Weirdos were an American punk rock band from Los Angeles, California. They formed in 1976 and broke up in 1981, were occasionally active in the 1980s, and recorded new material in the 1990s.

The band was formed by singer John Denney and his brother Dix on guitar; they were the only constant members, though guitarist/bassist Cliff Roman, bassist Dave Trout and drummer Nickey "Beat" Alexander were relatively long-term Weirdos.

They were originally an art rock band formed in 1976, and were featured in a news article featuring punk rock groups in Time magazine and so the "punk" label stuck.

They broke up in 1981, but reunited at various times, including to record the 1990 album Condor. A 2004 reunion includes in the band's lineup Circle Jerks bassist Zander Schloss and The Skulls drummer Sean Antillon.
Egrets On Ergot
Egrets On Ergot
Egrets 0n Ergot is an experimental art-punk band based in Los Angeles, CA. Their sound has been described as versatile, from moody, gothy post-punk to funky rhythmic, pseudo-no wave with a smattering of industrial clamor. They have a self-released EP, ‘Serve Us Tender,’ (300 vinyl run, 100 copies including hidden hits of LSD) and an 11 track LP, 'Surfeit of Gemütlich' signed to Cleopatra Records. Both albums are produced by Paul Roessler of The Screamers, Nervous Gender, Nina Hagen Band. To date, Egrets have self booked and completed four regional U.S tours, played SxSW '18, scheduled as tour support for The Weirdos in July, and are currently self-booking a cross country tour for Oct 2018.
