Special Guests Double Vanity

PARTY LIKE IT’S 1985! Mi-Sex returns to MEMO – for one night only – to revive the soundtrack of a generation, with a massive live show that features all their greatest hits and more. Merging new wave with their unique blend of rock, transcending pop, punk, and discotheque, get-set for a visual spectacular that’s as energetic as it is awe-inspiring.

Exclusive to MEMO, Mi-Sex promise to play all the hits from Graffiti Crimes, Space Race (1980), Shanghaied! (1981) and Where Do They Go? (1983), including ‘Computer Games’, ‘But You Don’t Care’, ‘People’, ‘Blue Day’ and ‘Castaway’, alongside a few newbies for fun.


Exploding upon the Sydney live music scene, Mi-Sex quickly caught the eye of record producer Peter Dawkins, who signed the group to CBS. The relationship proved to be a masterstroke, with the release of the group’s debut LP, Graffiti Crimes, and subsequent singles, ‘But You Don’t Care’ and ‘Computer Games’ racing to the top of the charts in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Germany, Austria and South Africa. The LP became the catalyst for an entirely new era in music and fashion – new wave.

ABC’s Double J embraced new wave and Mi-Sex became regular guests on Countdown, which saw the group shoot to #1 with ‘Computer Games’, before Mi-Sex rounded-out the decade with its landmark performance at the Sydney Opera House – revered by those of the era as the ‘Concert of the Decade’. Early the following year, Mi-Sex Graffiti Crimes scooped the 1979 TV WEEK / COUNTDOWN MUSIC AWARDS with 4 gongs: Best New Single (Computer Games), Most Popular Single/Album (Computer Games/Graffiti Crimes), Best New Talent (Mi-Sex), and Best Production (Peter Dawkins/Graffiti Crimes).

Double Vanity
Described by 4ZZZ as “synth crooners”, Double Vanity layer synths, swelling guitar and lush vocals all meeting for a moment of textured overexposure and minimal pulsing rhythms. So be prepared to Alight the escalator into the skies for an automated trajectory into a brave new world, caught in an ‘airportwave’ between the arrival and departure lounge.
