Speaking of the Fantastic Party, the first one was also Eagle Leather‘s 20th birthday which they asked me to perform at. It was their idea to have me jump outta a cake. I loved the idea and said I should get wheeled onto the dance floor in the cake and then once out I decided to do Samantha Fox’s TOUCH ME song which I am now known for performing at Sircuits birthday later the same year.
Here for the first time, you can see the original performance and that infamous cake. Whatever happened to that cake?
Special thanks to Damo from Darkroom Projects for helping me with props and bopping along next to the unimpressed looking Skippy.
Special thank you to the KIKASS Ollie Savage for helping me with my make-up! And my partner in crime Skippy Baxter. And Bradda for my awesome special effects balloon!
I first met Matto Lucas at the very first Company Of Men Exhibition, but he grabbed my attention with a KICKASS review he did of my performance piece on the opening night of the exhibition. He looked past the sweat and muscle and saw several layered meanings in my show that I assume usually just goes over everyone’s head. I have wanted to collaborate on a project with him ever since. Here’s the awesome pics he took of me and Dingo for a performance we did at the notorious Melbourne party TROUGH (back when).

Shot when I was just a PUPPY FLEX! this was a promo for HOTROD, the infamous Sydney night that was held monthly at the Oxford Hotel where I did many a messy performance! This was the first time I worked with them for their “PUMP UP THE JAM” 90s night where I DJ’ed as well. Yes, I used to DJ. well, press start and stop on my laptop, but i was really knarly at it!
I was inspired by Collette’s Ring My Bell for this shoot.
