Q: What is Gooey on The Inside?
A: Gooey on the Inside was an underground art, music and event organisation curated by Kati Cubby and Holly Fluxx that successfully hosted over 40 separate events (from 2007-2010).

Our events included art exhibitions, live music performances, dance parties, artist markets, workshops, skill shares, contemporary dance performances, writings, theatre performances, fundraisers, live video streams, panel discussions and fashion shows, as well as a combination of many of these simultaneously.

Highlights of Gooey On the Inside include:
- A live music and art event in Berlin, Germany (The Slumber Party)
- A live music and art event in Santiago, Chile (La Cunt Rave)
- A well received music showcase compilation cd (Hit Machine XXIVIVX), featuring Gooey on the Inside artists from Indonesia, Japan, Chile, USA, UK, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, and across Australia.
- An invitation to speak at This Is Not Art Festival 2008 on "How to start a scene from scratch"
- Producing our own specialist radio programs for 3CR and SYN fm
- Over 40 successful dynamic and diverse events spanning the course of three years
- Featured in an interview and full page spread in UK magazine "Super Super" as well as local Australian zines

Focusing on young people who identified as women, trans, queer, and people of colour, we strived to create space, agency, audience, support and a thriving, dynamic environment and build a community for our artists.

We have now moved on to other projects, but can be contacted via email: and

thanks so much
love kati and holly!

mc nova japan tour!!!

Recently Nova mc from Indonesia returned from her tour of Japan with Filistine, i just saw a vid of a performance in Koenji, its fucken cool.. but i also found a video of them performing at HEAVY SICK, which is this fucking amazing, cool underground club in Nakano. They have all the breakcore/noisy/interesting bands play there all the time, when i lived in nakano i would go there heaps, its got an amazing scene and support, if you ever go to japan i reccomend it.....the vid from Heavy Sick is only 40 seconds + its at the BOTTOM of this post. the vid right here just under these words is from koenji, check it out and hear Nova's incredible vocals....

Nova was in australia earlier this year, we put on a film night that she curated, cuz she also works for Engage Media.
Nova is a a really incredible rapper and vocalist, as well a totally inspiring artist and activist.

i chatted to her online and she gave me this info on the tour....

nova: "it was Sapporo (2 gigs) - Tokyo - Kyoto - Osaka - Kitakyushu - Tokyo......basically the idea was collaborate with him in his Japan tour.....everything felt so great.....maybe because we met great people......i met some anarchists as well....we joined the mayday in Tokyo with them...we stayed in their infoshop"

this is the myspace of the guy she toured with.

This is what he said on his blog about touring with Nova.....
"Jakarta and Barcelona could be the two most distant points one could find on the globe, so it’s not a very logical collaboration, but then there aren’t many women rappers who can also sing in bahasa and come from a DIY/activist perspective."

HEAVY SICK-- the cool music club in nakano

Sometimes, really rarely, you see some a performer or a group who make really amazing beautiful, haunting music!! and then when you go to their myspace, or listen to their discs 3 days later, it brings back the good memories!! right? well, last week in Berlin, I saw Telepathe.

(photo from their myspace)

Two girls with keyboards, a drum machine and a couple of live drums. Simple beats and epic catchy hooks. Really powerful, and minimal, and last week at Picknick, full of BASS.

Telepathe make me wanna get really good at what I do. (whatever it is that I do)
Telepathe are from New York, but they are not ironic!!



my friend Kelly just told me about Noki, a London fashion recycle designer.

I'm so excited about sustainable and recycled fashion that is COLOURFUL and NOT BLAND!!!
can't wait to get back to Australia and make clothes!!!

TIOLET WORLD exhibition ....... and fashion sale!

yeah. at the SEED FACTORY << onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="">
if you dont know, BOON runs a label called Toilet World. it is made up of one off pieces for girlz/boyz/aliens/goblins etc. Each garment is hand painted with a absolutely NUTS design. A fun thing i have found i like doing with the clothes is grabbing something and saying "BOON, what is this" and they will say, "oh that an octopus stabbing a deformed moose mule in the butt, except his butt is his face."
and im like...
" cool!!!!!!"
yeah so Boons label is fkn wicked. practically sold out on the night, and the art was amazing!!!!

. i believe they will have another exhibition soon at Discobeans.. . . .

here are some more photos. i will take some photos of the label and put them up later.
