2007 compilation from the New Zealand Artsy Rock/Pop band fronted by the late Steve Gilpin. Mi-Sex started out as a quirky Rock outfit influenced by bands like Skyhooks before adding synthesizers in the late '70s and morphing into a New Wave band with their trend-setting 'Computer Games' single. Sony/BMG.
Excellent supplement to the Computer Games/Space Race 2-on-1

"Although "computer games" was the big song for this new wave/synthpop band in the US, they actually released plenty of very strong tracks along the way that should have gotten much more notice on new wave radio stations back then. While "computer games" is here in its original and 12" version, This album, ironically, is predominantly filled with songs from their excellent pop rock/new wave album "Where Do They Go" from 1984--their LAST album. Which is great, considering that album is not available on CD. The ONLY tracks missing from it are "I Lose Control" and "Don't Look Back in Anger". Sadly, there are only 3 songs from the album "Shanghaied", which came right before that album, and is another album that is NOT on CD. After that, there are only 7 songs from their earlier albums, which might be great for some, because the 2-on-1 CD has been criticized for having terrible mastering. What could have made this CD better for collectors would have been the inclusion of the song "I wanna be with you", which was removed from the track listing when the album 'computer games' was released in the US, and which also does not appear on the 2-on-1 CD, which follows the US track listing. I really hope that the band's last two albums, Shanghaied and Where Do They Go, are finally released on CD, perhaps as another 2-on-1."
