The OK SLUTS are maverick mash-up emissaries from Alice Springs, unpacking the myths of the outback whilst unpacking their own whiteness. They are the outback cliché, the missionary, the mercenary, the misfit and the madness.

Conceptualised ’round a campfire circa 2009, the OK SLUTS explores genres unique to the centre such as casio gospel, lesbian country, draconian funk, desert vampire polka, hip folk fusion and two-thousand and eighties and have been described as something between hardplace and classic rock. Their sound is a product of taking the music of black American rap artists, passing it through tinny Holden Commodore speakers in a remote community, looping it four times around an Indigenous world view, filtering it through the complex and cynical mind of a burnt-out white Aboriginal service industry worker then adding distortion and a little bit more echo.

The Unbearable Whiteness of Being followed the journey of the OK SLUTS from naivety through disillusion in their respective paths working in remote Aboriginal communities. The original OK SLUTS were: Hannah-May Caspar, Matt Hill, Beth Sometimes and Melissa Kerl.

A Dreamtime Nightmare is the animated series and adapted tale of the OK SLUTS in production in 2014! Here is a tiny sneak preview:
