In 1991 - I think - I saw the DiVinyls live. Riverside Park (now Six Flags New England), Agawam, MA. I went with Heather Deane, and we were right up next to the stage. Her ears are probably still ringing from that show. They put on a great one, too! Sure, they were playing all their new songs.... but they weren't all that bad. Straight-ahead pop rock, and the gravelly vocals of Christina Amphlett really sold it all. That was great fun with a great friend (who I really should call sometime).
This was the DiVinyls only hit single in the United States, but it was a doozy that everyone - EVERYONE - knows. We all know what it's about. It's mildly naughty.
The one thing that bothered me is that they didn't do much of their older catalog - they used a familiar old song during sound check that I heard when I was on the amusement park rides. They did do one older song, which I was not as familiar with before, but has become one of my favorite songs by them afterwards. Here it is, performed live.
Update (22 April 2013): Christina Amphlett will be missed. She passed away over the past weekend from complications from MS and breast cancer. In tribute, I have added that song they played during the sound check.
Not surprisingly, she sings about getting off.
