Graffiti Crimes is the debut studio album by New Zealand new wave rock band Mi-Sex, originally released in July 1979 via CBS Records.

Mi-Sex formed in 1978 in New Zealand with members Steve Gilpin (vocals), Don Martin (bass), Kevin Stanton (guitar), Murray Burns (Keyboards) and Richard Hodgkinson (drums).

They located themselves to Sydney and soon found themselves one of the city’s biggest live drawcards and soon came to the attention of CBS Records label A&R Manager and Producer, Peter Dawkins. He produced their debut album Graffiti Crimes.

The album featured ten songs of which eight were original songs written by various members of the band.

The first single released from the album was “But You Don’t Care” which received considerable airplay both in Australia and New Zealand, reaching #25 and #33 on their respective singles charts.

Their big breakthrough song and single was “Computer Games”. It had not been included on the initial pressings of their album, however was added as the first track on Side B when the song became a massive commercial hit. “Computer Games” is one of those rare songs to become an electro-pop anthem, a perfect pop song with a memorable melody and arrangement. The song was a massive hit, reaching #1 in Australia and Top 5 in New Zealand. It also broke the band internationally, reaching the Top 10 in Austria, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, and South Africa.

The album was rebranded as Computer Games for the International release, in light of the success of this single.

The cover artwork is one of the most distinctive Australian / New Zealand album releases of all time, with the cover art concept developed by the band and photographed by Greg Penniket.

Check out the tracks:  Graffiti Crimes”; “Computer Games”; But You Don’t Care”; “I Wanna Be With YouandInside You”.

This LP record is a 2017 reissue on black vinyl with an inner sleeve, pressed in Australia via Sony Music.
