Yay it's metal time!!!

For those of you who have followed my career you would be well aware of the death metal bands I used to sing for. One of those bands was instrumental in me actually coming out to transition funnily enough even though it's content is quite disgusting. FMC or Filthy Maggoty Cunt was created back in 1999 by myself being fed up with the music industry mass producing crap with no substance. FMC was a death metal / grindcore band who's lyrics were over the top and vile on so many levels. We set out to offend everybody we possibly could, and we did!

FMC started out just me and my Playstation as the drumkit. I put together a handful of songs and hit a recording studio creating the debut CD "Sadomasadistikwankore". With songs like The Story of the Sadistik Seagul Fucker, Pure Anal and Leperleptic the CD got alot of interest very quickly. The real clinker was the marketing online for FMC. Our website was updated daily with so much silly crap that we instantly got a cult following. Our CD was banned in a few countries and it was time to book some shows.

I enlisted the services of some good friends, we wore a bunch of silly costumes, barely practiced the songs and before long we were touring interstate. The whole band was intended to be a joke from the start and all the way through the next few years we treated it as a big joke on everybody who actually liked the band. Most of our shows we performed in drag, I quickly became known as a shemale which was cool for me because it opened the door for me to actually transition.

We faked fights onstage, did tribute nights on boybands, acoustic shows, drag shows... You name it we did it. We offended minority groups and received alot of hate mail from Christian groups which made me laugh even harder. FMC released serveral demo's and split ep's, toured in Australia and today have a whole swag of hilarious photo's and videos from our time together. In 2003 I moved to Sydney so the band was over until 2006 I reformed FMC for one night only which was a barrel of laughs and chaos. Even today it's still possible we will reform and do something live again as is the chance of me releasing a new FMC CD in the future.

So I've decided to re-release the debut CD on iTunes with new artwork, totally remastered and with 5 bonus tracks. You can always head to our myspace to see just what all the frivolity was all about or just download the CD. GET IT HERE from iTunes for $16.99 AUD.

Hope you enjoy the walk down my metal memory lane...

Until next time..

More DreadCircus CD's available from iTunes.

Hey groovers,

Not only can you download the "Gender Optimized 2.0" CD online but I've also digitally re-released the first two DreadCircus recordings "Word & Music" and the ep "DC". Both CD's are available through iTunes, Amazon, Napster, Zune, Rhapsody and many others shortly. It feels great to finally have all my DreadCircus CD's available online so I can focus ahead on the new CD I'm working on.

Don't forget also to add me on the new iTunes social networking group PING where you can leave reviews for my music, follow what I'm listening to and get up to the minute info on my gigs and releases. The more reviews I can get the more chance of getting some interest from labels for the new CD, so please leave your comments I'll love you forever.

No longer can you buy physical copies of my first 2 DreadCircus CD's only digitally as I wont be pressing any more due to CD's almost being dead. So jump over to iTunes and hear the CD's from my early transition period compared to my last CD.

Don't forget you can always download my tunes from my widget located to the right hand side of this blog. Click the buy button and it will direct you straight to my iTunes page. You can also use the widget to check out my latest shows, follow my tweets and watch my youtube videos. Give it a try!!

From Metal to Maternal Web Novel ONLINE!

For those of you who missed out on my Rock Cabaret Show From Metal to Maternal which toured, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide fear not as the show has just been released as an online web novel. For those of you who really want to know the entire story about me this is the place to go.

The web novel contains most of the dialog from the show, music and the video media which streamed on stage all in a handy booklet. I thought I would try something different to go along side the new DreadCircus website update in readyness for the NEW CD and the dates that are coming up from November.

Hope you enjoy the web novel

Until next time..

DreadCircus is back!!!!!

After a long stint away from DreadCircus instead investing my time into my show From Metal to Maternal which was draining to say the least. I've finally begun work on the 5th DreadCircus studio album with a working title of "gOS 3.0" - Gender Operating System 3.0. I'm not sure if it will be an EP or a full length album I guess as it progresses will be the decided of such fate. The new music is quite a departure from the last albums as I've decided to instead play more the music I actually listen to. It's sounding so far like a bizarre mix between Mr Bungle, Slayer, Muse, Bjork and Gotye. You can listen to some sample on the news link from the new improved website.

Yes you read right I've actually given the entire website a complete overhaul which is very exciting. I totally deleted the old website and started from scratch and I'm sure you will find it quite user friendly. Well that is if you can view flash (Damn you Apple iPhone). If you can't well don't worry as the HTML version is not far behind so keep your eyes peeled.

Until next time..
