Touted as one of the defining pop-rock bands of the Australasian music-scape,
MI-SEX are back on the scene with bang! With Steve Balbi at the helm, the band creates an on stage chemistry that is electrifying.
It was New Zealand that gave birth to Mi-Sex. A name and a sound in 1977 that grew out of combining the collective creative energies of Steve Gilpin, Don Martin, Richard Hodgkinson, Kevin Stanton and Murray Burns.
Together Kevin & Murray forged a song writing partnership that anchored Mi-Sex throughout its four albums. These five new connections quickly dissolved their pasts, as they reinvented themselves, passing into the new era of new wave/electronic music and uniting fully as the sound that was to become Mi-Sex...
It took lead singer, Steve Gilpin’s unfortunate death to force Mi-Sex underground for 20 years and the simple acceptance of an invitation by Steve Balbi, to front Mi-Sex at a private party, and an out door“Christchurch Quake relief Concert” to confirm the right chemistry that would once again ignite our passion for "live performance" as Mi-Sex.
“Compu-PU-pu-PU-pu-PU Computer Games”!
If that chorus isn’t familiar to you then you didn’t live through the early 80’s. This international hit single preceded the glut of similar-sounding British chart entrants by a year or more, and became one of the defining pop-rock songs of a generation.
