Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
I remember in winter of 1980 my friend and I were desperate to go and see Mi-Sex who where coming to Invercargill to perform in the Civic Theartre, Invercargill. But our mother's would not let us go because they thought the band was some sort of sex culture.
We were 16 at the time and we babysat flat out for months to earn enough money to purchase the tickets. We had to get Janet's next door neighbour who was 22 to go into the Civic Theatre and purchase our tickets. Mi-Sex was the top band in Australasia and I remember Australia were claiming the band members as there own, although two of them came from Southland, Murray Burns and Richard Hodgkinson. Burns had played bass for ten years with a couple of blues and rock bands at Southladn Boys High School while Hodgkinson was doing the same thing in Gore. Burns played the keyboard in Invercargill's Band the 'Watchdog"
and the band moved to Christchurch in 1975. Hodgkinson arrived in Christchurch at the same time and jammed together and joined a band called the 'Red Rose". After a year the band split and Steve Gilpin, the lead singer and guitarist Kevin Stanton and bass player Don Martin then all got involved and started Mi-Sex.
'But you don't care' and Computer Games' and an album, 'Graffiti Crimes' had great sales on both sides of the Tasman, but they changed the name to 'Computer Games' to sell in America, but unfortunately there was a single of the same name released at that time. The British did not warm to the name of the album and a New Musical Express, critic said the album was 'interesting, more than adequate; less than sensational - maybe next time, however?'
We had a great night and fall in love with the Band, and as far as we know our parents never found out about us going to the concert.
