Saw the Divinyls a few times back in the eighties...
She was something special....sadly missed.
Oh yeah. She was the real deal. Amazing voice...no studio tricks necessary.
'I Touch Myself' was their calling card in the US, but I remember the first time I heard this one. Stunning.
I always thought of her as what Angus Young's bratty little sister would be, if Angus had a bratty little sister.
Yeah well said about the Angus thing...
love that song too.
Did she and Mick Jagger share the same lips and pout?
I like 'em on her better.
She was fantastic. Miss her!
A true frontwoman & cousin of Little Pattie ( Australian pop singer in the 60's). In the 80's Chrissie broke the long tradition of successful Australian rock bands only having frontmen. It was stated by Madonna that Chrissie was a influence on her career with performances like this when the Divinyls first hit the US.
Love those first 2 Divinyls albums. Mark McEntee & Chrissie were a good pairing.
Some Tele Deluxe content too.
Mark McEntee try to do a cash grab after she died by attempting a tour with an American girl as the singer. They sold about 11 tickets and everything was binned.
She was great, and is greatly missed.
She (the Divinyls) played here in the 90’s, and got in “trouble” for rockin’ too loud at Aquafest.
Good on em’!
This is a subject near and dear to my heart. Mark and Chrissie changed my life; they brought me on my first real tour: Four months in Australia after a couple of months in LA working on demos. Not a minute of a bad time. She was an amazing woman and a great artist.
One story (of many): when I first met them, my hand had been broken in an auto accident and I couldn't play for six weeks. Ron Fair (at the time head of Chrysalis A&R, later head of RCA) hired me to engineer/produce the demos for their next LP. Just the three of us in a little 24-track studio in Laurel Canyon.
It was a blast.
The first time I asked her to double a vocal part, I had to look at the meters on the Otari MTR90 to make sure it was working; to see that I had the signal patched correctly. She was such an absolutely perfect singer that the double was indistinguishable: perfect pitch, perfect phrasing.
One of a kind.
