Temper-Mental MissElayneous, born Elayne Harrington is an accomplished performer in the Irish Hiphop and poetry world. She wrote her first poem at 9 and then discovered Hiphop, which was to become her driving force along with her first love – Punk. At age 14 she named herself ‘Temper-Mental’ and added ‘MissElayneous’ to her moniker at 19.
After several solo years on the circuit, the straight-edge punk rapper became an official duo act when she met turntablist DJ FunkTom in 2014. TMM are an anarcho-punk Hiphop duet that work with the edgiest produce from other ‘crust of the underground’ beatmakers and musicians.
Unrelenting lyrics and complex rap patterns, along with sampling, scratching, beatbox and bodhrán accompaniment make this Celtic Hiphop couple an aggressively playful, provocative and engaging live act and full on experience.
