Sorrento Room Special Dance Events
Party like it’s 1980 and pay testament to Mi-Sex timeless classic, Space Race. In memory of our dear spiritual
leader and founding member, Don Martin, Mi-Sex returns to the stage in March 2022 with a massive live show
to honour its profound cultural legacy. Merging new wave with a unique blend of rock that transcends pop,
punk and discotheque, get-set for a visual spectacular that’s as energetic and exhilarating as it is awe-inspiring.
Man may have set foot on the Moon in 1969, but 1980 was the year that Mi-Sex launched Space Race. This
makes 2020/21 the 40th Anniversary of the earth-shattering LP – Space Race – featuring the hit singles ‘People’,
‘It Only Hurts When I’m Laughing’, ‘Living In September’, and title track, Space Race’. In a set that includes all
the hits from the debut LP, Graffiti Crimes, celebrated Space Race (1980), Shanghaied! (1981) and Where Do
They Go? (1983), get-set for a show that revives the soundtrack of a generation – ‘But You Don’t Care’,
‘Computer Games’, ‘People’, ‘Blue Day’ and ‘Castaway’, alongside a few newbies for fun.
After an almost twenty-year hiatus, Mi-Sex re-emerged yet again, to perform at the Christchurch Earthquake
Relief Concert, on this occasion with Noiseworks and Electric Hippies’ bassist and producer, Steve Balbi, out
front. Enamoured by the experience, Mi-Sex entered the studio for the first time in 33 years to record a new
studio album, Not from Here, which was released in September 2016. One year later, founding member and
guitarist, Kevin Stanton, also passed away. Yet the legacy of Mi-Sex lives on.
Now, altogether reimagined to honour and pay legacy to the group’s extraordinary socio-cultural narrative
and history, Mi-Sex new wave features the founding member and songwriter Murray Burns (keys ‘n’ synth),
Steve Balbi (vocals), James Van Cooper (guitar), Travis New (bass) and Jordan McDonald (drums).
