Love music, who doesn’t?. I wanna write it, dance to it and jam out with it, but we have a couple of problems so a while ago I decided that doing nothing but music was an indulgence. Besides the Machine keeps comin' and arrangements must be made. Permaculture was an emotional rescue, till this assymetrical info/finance war really amped up. Now it's actions at the local and words to the global. So Rap and Song are my part to play apart from self-reliance and dodging psy-ops bullets -Feel me?
No one really wants my life story so stop reading.
If you are still here.......
I started break-dancing as a 12 year old and was crazy into it (I still pop-lock on Instagram if you wanna look). Ran some nights at clubs in Brisbane as an 18 yo deejay with 2 mates. Moved to Melbourne at 21 and just practiced drums and dance. Formed the legendary performance band Down Town Brown with Capital T and the Contender. We rocked shows constantly till body parts hurt (think Devo, meets TISM meets Daft Punk). DTB killed it out there and I am happy to say we performed The Big Day Out (band of the day - sucked in Limp Biskit), The Falls Festival, Meredith Music fest and tonnes more.
I’m a hip-hop, r’n’b songwriter already so the electro disco band had an expiry for me sadly. Next up was OREO - the Hip Hop and RnB nightclub that 8-Bit, Myself and DJ Sunshine put on in Fitzroy for a while and at the same time I formed - The Calculators with Chris, Adam and eventually Ruth. We made a stunning album, got signed and broke up and the album never got released. Classic muso story. Went solo and wrote and performed around Melbourne as Ladyboy. It was a little lonely out there on the scene - just me, my guitar and my MPC so it kind of fizzled and now we are back where we started - eco crusader before people gave a shit and listened to young people like Greta. I wasn't the only one but shit there were not many around. I guess it's the timing more than the message.
