Do Re Mi, arguably the most successful Australian act of the post-punk era, make their long overdue return this summer with headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane alongside their already announced By The C Festival appearances, also featuring Icehouse and Sunnyboys.

The Sydney born band best known for the chart hits Idiot Grin, Adultery, Guns and Butter, the controversial No.4 smash Man Overboard and indie chart topper Standing On Wires will perform in all female guise fronted by vocalist and lyricist Deborah Conway and bassist Helen Carter.

An invitation for the band to appear at the Australian Women in Music Awards proved the catalyst for the reformation but other factors played a part too. Bassist Carter explains… “Playing those songs again and listening to the words, I’m struck by how danceable they are and sadly, how the forces we railed against persist. Those songs are still relevant and it goes to show how long it takes for real social change to happen.”

Says Conway “After 30 years we’re opening a time capsule and rediscovering artefacts that have been out of circulation for more than half my lifetime. Breathing life back into this treasure trove of tunes, words, riffs & rhythms is a loving enterprise. I come to them again with an appreciation of our passion, affection for our naivety & awe of our energy; I am looking forward to reopening that time capsule for our older & wiser audiences & for their great grandchildren ;-)”

Its Do Re Mi, musically, socially and politically as relevant now as they were then. Tickets for all shows are on-sale Friday 26th October.
