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!!!
A couple of weeks ago in London, I met up with my dear friends Beast, Nathan French, Rubbish Fairy and Celia aka Lady Gonzalez to attend a colourful exhibition called EPIPHANIES! curated by Sue Kreitzman and Peter Herbert. The exhibition is a must see and we were delighted to meet Sue in the flesh. She is one lovely lady with divine style; an inspiration to us all!
Last Friday evening, I performed at Sue’s birthday party with beast. It was a wonderful gathering full of interesting odd balls. I am honoured to have been part of the entertainment
Below are the incredible cakes made especially for the occasion
some photos from our performance
and Sue Kreitzman herself alongside artist Elton Darlo who drew the black and white sketch of us
All in all, a fabulous beginning to an incredible night followed by the last ever Gay Bingo at the Hackney Empire. More on that coming soon….
The exhibition is on until the 28th of November so you still have time to check it out. It is not to be missed!
If you haven’t heard of the underground duo from outta space called HYENAZ… then check them out and get with the program because they rock!!
I am delighted to say I have performed twice with them this year with another project I am part of - MEGA Ω MEGA - both in Berlin and Wroclaw
The HYENAZ show has it all
While transporting you to another dimension with strong shapes, DIY next level outfits, passion, unity and super space synthesizers, HYENAZ take you on a journey like none other
I find what they are doing to be VERY refreshing and inspiring as I rarely see a performance at such a high level in the underground while channelling the spirit and essence once brought to the stage in the 80s
I highly recommend, if you ever get the chance… GO SEE THEM and experience the journey for yourself…
Below is footage from the party we did together in Berlin a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy!
We had a wonderful and productive week there connecting with other extraterrestrial artists. We did three shows and a cosmic photo shoot with Berlin based photographer Camilla Storgaard
Enjoy my favourite shots… Hair, makeup and styling by us!
Last night was truly an event to be remembered. I am honoured to say I modelled and performed with my band project – MEGA Ω MEGA for Bas Kosters‘ extravaganza London Fashion Week show held at Electrowerkz in Angel
I LOVED the makeup, the vibe and the whole collection was one BIG colour orgasm

It was a special project called CAVE RAVE where we met and set up camp in the wilderness of the Snowy Mountains. We explored and filmed deep in caves there and danced by the fire at night
An experience I will never forget…
Below is documentation
(above is me)
When we returned to Melbourne at the end of the week; Misha, Shauna, Thomas and Rohan put together the party – CAVE RAVE – at the Meerkat where a tonne of boxes were built around the dj booth like a mega volcano/cave and I body painted myself cheetah styles. It was one hell of a party!
I have a lot of love and respect for the people involved. They are a wonderful group of artists with taste
This super stylin street label – A137 – is run by a GREAT friend of mine called Joey Phi
I am obsessed with the green turtle shell design by Vanya. It’s so killer!
If you’re into next level dimension T-shirts, hoodies, leggings, sweat pants and tote bag designs then this is for you!
Ylva Falk and I did a shoot with A137 in the hoods of Paris
Below are some shots from it
and having coffee with Joey in London…

We have a new music video for our latest release- Disney says NO!
If you haven’t heard the story already, let me enlighten you…
Two years ago in Paris, I put on my favourite traditional Peruvian skirt, fluro yellow LONG SLEEVED top, some lippy and eye makeup to visit my childhood dream – Disneyland
It was my first time and I was SO excited!
My friend and I spent a glorious two hours inside before we tried entering the second park – Disney World. It was there we were greeted with techni-colour discrimination. They pretended not to speak English and after us trying to work out what was actually going on, twenty minutes later, we were informed by the alleged manager that we were wearing “too much colour” … “confusing the children”… and my favourite – “interfering with Mickey Mouse”
I think what he was trying to say is we looked BETTER than Mickey Mouse!
Still utterly confused, we returned to the gate of Disneyland to be greeted with a big smile from a young employee who told us she thought we looked great!
Next thing, we were surrounded by six security guards who told us “you must leave IMMEDIATELY”
I had been lucky in my life as to avoid bullying hitherto, so this was a new experience for me. My instant reaction was to cry (which I did). I still couldn’t understand what we had done wrong. I asked them “if we take the colour off our faces, can we go back in?” they simply replied “No, you must leave NOW”
I then asked if I could still visit the gift shop to buy some things I wanted. They said I had TWO minutes, and guarded the shop
We were then escorted off the premises where the large kind security guard snarled at me – “and don’t even THINK about going to the Disney Village”
(the Disney Village is a shopping mall full of merchandise)
I was indeed scarred by this experience and decided the most positive thing to do, would be to turn it into inspiration for a new song…
I made the video for it in Tokyo earlier this year with my talented video producer friend Aleksandar Dragicevic
The track is available as a FREE download – HERE
Hope you like it!
Ever wondered what the Australian outback looks like?
Earlier this year, I went on a journey driving in a van from Sydney to Melbourne along the coast line, from there to Adelaide on the epic Great Ocean Road, then from Adelaide to Mungo National Park
It was there in Mungo, that we shot the below video
A surreal experience with the Beast I’ll never forget…
I am happy to announce the release and fresh colourful music video of our latest track DIY – DO IT YOURSELF!
This track was inspired by some not great shoots I did and up their own arse fashion people
Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of good people in the industry too… BUT at the end of the day, DIY-ing gets the job done faster and exactly how you want it, saving yourself from unnecessary stress and wasted energy. Choosing the right team to make your shit happen is VERY important!
The track is available to download for FREE - HERE
I made this video in my bedroom in Sydney with my great friend Leeanna Walsman. I love creating with her, she makes me laugh a lot
The beats are by Drugmoney who sampled a classic from the 60′s keepin the good stuff alive
We hope you like it!
Although this festival is one of the best English festivals around, it has been a strange journey (attending the past five years) to see it get bigger and more popular each year and lose its special more abstract installations that made it so attractive and unique to people like myself
I did, however, have an amazing time, connecting and dancing the nights away with dear friends
It’s been three years now I’ve performed in the woods with the Artful Badgers. They bring a special vibe with a lovely team and are a great attribute to the festival
Here are my favourite snaps from the weekend
With my weird and wonderful friend Rutter – the creator of the label Fizzy Fingers Fantascinators
Rutter’s magnificent techni-coloured rainbow eyeball chest
The highlight of my Friday night was seeing Bourgeois & Maurice perform followed by the great Dr Brown – who literally took my breath away. I haven’t laughed that hard since I can remember – he is pure genius
With other random shots of imagery I enjoyed along the way…
Great times had… Until next year!
