Named after the Ultravox song "My Sex," this New Zealand/Australian-based new wave rock band had hits with the singles "Computer Games" and "Space Race." This CD contains the band's second and third albums, both originally released by Epic in 1980.
Misex were formed out an earlier band called Fragments of Time, which in turn came from Father Time. Both earlier bands were in the prog rock genres and known for their solos and lighting (and smoke). They became Misex after the punk explosion in an effort to stay contemporary. Their debut single was on EMI, before moving to Australia, where their earlier history (including Steve Gilpin's earlier career as a cabaret and covers singer) was unknown, and immediately broke with Computer Games which was number one at the end of 1979.
