Mi-Sex announce their Blue Day – 20 years tour

by

Mi-Sex emerged from New Zealand in 1977 as a collection of creative souls and forged a collaborative talent that broke the 80’s new sound. Powerful live performances and hit song’s like: ‘But You Don’t Care’, ‘Graffiti Crimes’ and the hit single ‘Computer Games’ very quickly established them on the touring circuit as a power to be reckoned with. “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 most defining pop-rock songs of the Australasian music-scape. It rocketed to #1 on the Australian charts during November ’79 and hit the top five in New Zealand. By April 1980 Computer Games’ had charted in more than 20 countries, and had peaked inside the top ten in Canada, France, Austria, Italy, West Germany and South Africa.

It took lead singer, Steve Gilpin’s unfortunate death in January 1992 to force Mi-Sex underground for 20 years.

20 years on, and one simple acceptance of an invitation by Steve Balbi, to front Mi-Sex at a private party, and an outdoor event, “The Christchurch Quake Relief Concert” and they had their confirmation, this was the right chemistry, this would again ignite their passion for “live performances” as Mi-Sex!

Steve Balbi brings an element of surprise and experience to the band. In 2011 he played the principal lead role on the Zeppelin & Bowie shows. Steve has fronted bands such as the ‘Electric Hippies’ and ‘Move Trees’ and of course the bass player in the great Aussie rock band Noiseworks.

MI-SEX appeals to a kind of sophisticated punk waiting to bust out and kick and kiss things ….. I am honored to be a part of this momentous return.” Steve Balbi 

“To see the power that Steve gave our music after only one rehearsal and the effect it played on the crowd made me realize we could be a band again.”  Don Martin

The Blue Day Tour kicks off in Western Australia and heads around the country on a 11 date tour.
