Began his music career at the very early stage, got his first drum kit at the age of 2. Being lucky to have a musical family. Dad was a touring musician who inspired his son to the love of music.

“I used to be heavily connected with d’n’b etc. In nyc in the mid 90’s. Not so much anymore as the tidal wave of those styles has ebbed out quite a bit since the mid 90’s. Now, I’m adjusting my radar into any direction that indicates steps towards an interesting and fresh musical experience. Some is still within the electronic scene, such as the dub step stuff for instance. Other influences come out of the new stream of experimental rock and stuff…whatever it might be…old or brand new”

Lady Fag- The one who wore it best!

Lady Fag is the most iconic nightlife fashionista in NYC originally from Toronto. Dresses in bizarre and super flashy outfits

“I’ve been called an animal before so it didn’t surprise me when the fabulous boys at SPANK asked me to pose as one. I am a horse. I’ve always felt that to be my animal spirit.”

She owned a vintage cloths shop for 10 years, thereafter she grew to admire and appreciate clothing, fabric and cut. Lady Fag is an extreme fashion-monger, loves importance of outlandish one piece clothing over mass shopping. A Queen of handmade items.
Prolific admirer of Mexican and South American culture/fashion.

From time to time wears a lamp shade on her head and has ubber hairy armpits.

“Do I seem like a pretty white horse with a dildo on my head?!…. I dont think so!!!” Says Lady Fag.

Perhaps most exhilarating is her “Fuck You” attitude combined with her wonderful outgoing free spirit and confidence.
