Mi-Sex To Pop Up A Peep Show At Ding Dong

Mi-Sex will return to Melbourne for a rare performance of hits in Peep Show.

Mi-Sex have played a handful of shows with Steve Balbi (Noiseworks) in recent years and has recently returned to the studio to record their first new music since ‘Where Do They Go’ from 1983.

Mi-Sex had a string of hits in Australia in the 80s but went into hiatus in 1986 with the intention of one day picking up where they left off. It wasn’t to do after singer Steve Gilpin was tragically killed in a road accident in November, 1991. Gilpin was left in a coma and died in January, 1992.

20 years later, the band reformed with Balbi on vocals.

The hits of Mi-Sex include ‘But You Don’t Care’, ‘Computer Games’, ‘People’, ‘Space Race’, ‘It Only Hurts When I’m Laughing’, ‘Falling In And Out’, ‘Castaway’, ‘Down The Line’ and ‘Blue Day’.

Sony Music have released The Essential Mi-Sex, featuring all of the hits.

Mi-Sex will play a rare Melbourne show at Ding Dong on Saturday, August 23.

Tickets are available from oztix or 03 9514 4599.
