Performance in Lille

Two Saturdays ago, I performed a special live show in Lille with My Bad Sister & Beast at a party called Catch Me! If You Can

I’ve been wanting to join forces for an extravaganza with the twins for a while now, so it was so great to see a dream coming true!

It feels like the beginning of something rather exciting….

Below are some of my favourite shots:

Fresh track: Don’t Copy Me

I recently spent time in the Australian Blue Mountains recording this new track Don’t Copy Me with next level

outta space producers EST ET NON

It was a great pleasure to collaborate with them and hope we have more sounds for you in the future!

Below is the track inspired by the unoriginal cyber copycats out there…

The next day after recording, we performed together in Sydney and let’s just say I was fully into their

extraterrestrial analogue show!

New MEGA Ω MEGA video!

I am excited to present to you a new video from my sista project MEGA Ω MEGA for our track Discrimination of a Nation

The track is inspired by our everyday fight in expressing ourselves through style and colours

Shout outs to every super star involved in making it happen!

Below are some behind the scene shots I captured…

Elena Stonaker

The moment I discovered Elena Stonaker and her ridiculously next level creations was a special day!

I absolutely ADORE everything she dreams and creates

I would describe her work as: cosmic techni-coloured designs made for psychedelic goddesses

If you don’t know of Elena already, see below some of my favourite images of her work

Dream video with dad

Four years ago, I wrote a song about my dad and his infamous truck The Bandag Bullet

Dad holds the record for the fastest truck in the world and is in the Guinness Book of World Records

You can watch the record being set HERE

Since the moment I wrote the track – Frank Goes Bang – with Dmoney, I dreamed of filming the video with dad and the truck some day, capturing him in his element doing extreme burnouts with flames roaring

Today, that dream came true

The team consisted of myself and two school friends Rob Norton and Sally Freeman. We had a 7am start and less than two hours to capture the shots I had in my mind of dad and me being silly, tough and real alongside the Bullet before the crowd got there to watch the big show…

…and we did it! It is quite surreal when you picture something so vividly for so long and actually see it come true in real life

I even got dad to dance and show off some of his black belt karate moves. Pow!

I am proud of him for taking directions so well and also Rob and Sal for bringing good vibes and professional attitudes

Below are some winning stills of the day

Usually I don’t show behind the scene shots before a video comes out but the Bandag Bullet is no secret so enjoy…!

Desert Designs in Paris

In summertime last year, I went for a stroll in Paris with my friend Isabella Melody Moore

As I’m sure you know, I am a big fan of my friend’s label Desert Designs

I took a bunch of their threads out with us one day and did several outfit changes while Isa documented

Here are my favourite shots from our big day out in the sun…

Below are my fave shots Isa took on this day… Hope you enjoy our colours in the wilderness!

Kate Moss/McQ tweak old memories

When I first looked at the latest Alexander McQueen shoot with Kate Moss, I thought “Oh wow she looks awesome” but then those pics suddenly made old memories come to mind.. and I thought there may be some ulterior inspirations going on….

As a matter of fact, this time last year I had yellow hair and my own action figure made (best birthday present ever from beast!)

All in all, this is what my madeleine experience happily brought back to me, giving me the taste of a compliment, together with the memory of the shot I modelled in McQ for Dazed & Confused three years ago

POW!

Electric Lycra Land

I don’t know about you, but to me… the name: Electric Lycra Land sounds like heaven on Earth and guess what…..? IT IS!

It is in fact a stall found only at the festival RAINBOW SERPENT this coming weekend and is FULL of handmade and designed lycra, hats, wigs, headdresses and party wear by the fabulous weird and wonderful ladies: Fizzy Fingers, Nixi Killick, Luna Aquatica and Sarah Seahorse!

Below is a little taste of what to expect from these techni-coloured goddesses……

Scottee hits Melbourne

Melbourne do I have a treat for you…!

My friend, the extraordinary performance artist Scottee is in town direct from London and is debuting his award winning show here all week - The Worst of Scottee - at Theatre Works in St Kilda

I was lucky enough to see the first mother performance of this particular show in London and I am very much looking forward to seeing its evolution since then (seeing the show back then was deeply powerful)

Scottee is known as the king of avant-garde. There is no show like this so go see it!

Last night, Time Out reviewed it and gave it FOUR stars

You can find all the details HERE … hope to see you there!

Iconic shots by House of Drama

In my eyes, the art of colourful self-decor transformation doesn’t get any more chic than with the cosmic collective House of Drama

Each member possesses a pure energy with his/her own individual next level style and beauty

When their forces combine as one……. everything on this planet in time and space just…… stops for a moment (including my heart!)

It is always a pleasure when we join paths in Paris. I follow everything they are creating. Every look is special

I hope you enjoy their most recent ventures as much as I do. See below some of my favourite images from their movements in the last few weeks…

I highly recommend you follow these mysterious beings on their tumblr. They know what’s up!

Shoot at Sue’s

A couple of weeks ago, I spent one of my final days in London with two of my favourite colourful beings on this planet – Sue Kreitzman and Rubbish Fairy

We styled it out in Sue’s house here there everywhere in her techni-coloured wonderland

We all wore each others creations. It was fun and highly satisfying for the soul

I really get off on colour!

My friend Richard Kelly shot us. He was the perfect addition bringing more good vibes

We are all self styled. All necklaces worn by Rubbish & I are made by Sue

Below are some of my favourite shots…

Haw Par Villa

Last week I visited one of the most amazing visually pleasing places I have ever been to

The out of this world deserted theme park goes by the name: Haw Par Villa – Ten Courts of Hell and is located in Singapore

We pretty much had the whole adventure land to ourselves. It was like being on another planet alone…

The park is a combination of statues depicting and dramatising scenes from Chinese mythology, folklore and legends

I will let the colour explosion of weirdness do the rest of the talking…

I highly recommend a visit if you are ever in Asia!

Beast Desire release

Better late than never……… I am pleased to finally present to you the release and music video of our track Beast Desire and, with it, I will tell my story on why it took so long…

Nearly two years ago, I shot the music video for Beast Desire in the basement of The Oxford Hotel with a super crew in Sydney consisting of Aaron Manhattan, Beau Kirq, Leeanna Walsman, Richard Baron and Isabella Melody Moore.

We had fun and I was proud of our creation.

About a month later, I signed a contract for the release with a label. A couple of weeks ago, they decided to simply – DROP THE PROJECT (without mixing/mastering the track like agreed, getting remixes made, editing the video, etc.)

At first after waiting so long and feeling like the work was old, I was uninspired to finish what we had started BUT the show must go on and at the end of the day, I still love the video.

Leeanna had done an amazing edit but there were just a couple of minor changes I wanted made. Rather than drag the project out any longer, I took it upon myself to make the final adjustments.

The track is a present from us to you. You can download it for free - HERE

We also present the music video for your viewing pleasure along with a couple of my favourite on set shots.

Enjoy and share our story! DIY all the way!!!
