MC Gaff E is a 25-year-old performer and DJ living in London. Born in Brisbane, she describes her music as a psychedelic punk dirty rap. Her style and her artistic universe are striking. Her performances are purely original and highly colourful.

‘Watching her perform is like being transported to some freakishly queer and bizarre, deranged, dream-like world of hallucinogenic animals, sequins, eyebrow raising, vertical pelvic thrusts and a never-ending magic trunk of mad outfits combined with even madder songs” wrote Britt Foe about Mc Gaff E for Neu HQ magazine.

MC Gaff E recently started a new project called MEGA MEGA with Ylva Falk, a House of Drama performer. “We are cosmic princesses from out of space and we bring light and power to your eyes and ears,” says MC Gaff E. The girls plan to go to Peru to record their first music video soon.

 Let’s have a chat with our hallucinogenic-princess!

 

When did you start”singing”?
I’ve been in choirs since I was seven but I was never any good so I never took it seriously as something I wanted to do later in life. I’ve been performing in my current style for the past four years but I wouldn’t exactly call what I do ‘singing’!

Fashion seems a very important part of your performances, what do you like about dressing up?
I would call what I wear ‘personal style’ rather than fashion just cause I don’t follow any trends. Colour and face paint makes me feel good on every level! I feel uncomfortable wearing black (unless its some amazing lacy jumpsuit).I shop in thrift stores all over the world. I get a lot of my outfits in America and got a ridiculous amount of colour while I was in Peru recently (I’ve struggled to find things I like since that trip. My favourite designers are Isolated Heroes, Carley Hague and Fred Butler.

Do you have a style icon?
I think Ilona Royce Smithkin knows whats up!

Where does your inspiration come from?
I am inspired in general by other performers pushing the boundaries on stage with colour and energy. And visually wise, I’m currently inspired by Peruvian textiles from the amazon.

Favourite artists?
Trippple Nippples, Nina Hagen, Forces, Rub n Tug, Betty Grumble, Jonny Woo, Ryan Styles, Le Gateau Chocolat, Wau Wau Sisters, House of Drama, Narcissister, Rubbish Fairy and My Bad Sister.

Australian artists, Europeans should know about?
Betty Grumble, Justin Shoulder, and Dallas Dellaforce

A quote?
“Being stranded in the middle of nature is absolutely no excuse to look boring or shit.” Taylor Di Pasquale

Best club night?
Tough question! My favourite (regulars) are Bamboo in Melbourne, Loose Ends in Sydney, Honey Sound System in San Fran, Horse Meat Disco and Sink The Pink in London!

Your future?
The future is bright with our new band MEGA MEGA. So finishing album in the next couple of weeks, touring that and taking my rapping musical to the theatre!

MC Gaff E in 2 words?
Raw power!

What does bad taste mean to you?
Zero self presentation.

GOODBYE ENGLISH VERSION!

Dear english readers, I’m sorry to announce that I won’t translate my articles in english anymore. I don’t have enough time and I unfortunately can’t afford a translator. One day maybe…but until then, you can probably read the french version with Google translator. Thanks for reading me!
