Niall O’Conghaile aka The Niallist lives in Manchester UK. He’s a dj/producer/writer.
He’s also the man behind CVNT (Cunt Traxxx) and founding member of the group Tranarchy.
Recently I submitted some questions to get the low down on what’s happening in the UK.
TR: Tell us about Tranarchy?
NO:Tranarchy is a collective of artists and general show-offs, founded by myself and Midnight Growler a few years back. We started off promoting parties and events, like our annual Vogue Brawl function, film screenings like Showgirls and Paris Is Burning, and even outlaw parties in public spaces. We’re now concentrating on producing our own music though, and working on bad-ass stage routines for performing it!
TR: I love the slang definition for CVNT, I saw on your Facebook page. Where did that pop up from?
NO: CVNT (adj). A term used in gay slang to describe something or someone who is impressive, original or fantastic in regard to style or demeanor.
Well originally that was an image I just found floating around on the web, on Facebook or Tumblr or somewhere. I had wanted to use the word “cunt” in my production title but didn’t want to have to spend so much time having to explain the gay/drag meaning to everyone all the time, so when I found an image that did it for me it was a bit of a godsend.
