Newcastle (Australia) band Pel Mel initially restricted their performances to occasional gigs on the Sydney inner-city circuit, plus some plum supports for touring artists like The Fall and New Order.
Their first single, No Word From China, independently financed on their own Primate label, received rave reviews.
With the release of their debut album, Out Of Reason (1983) the band began touring nationally.
Their music was structured around funk, and variety was maintained by the alternation of lead vocals between Judy McGee and Graeme Dunne, and intelligent sprinklings of sax.
