Artist Biography

The Dugites emerged from Perth, Australia, in 1978, at the tail-end of punk and in the middle of a period heralding the arrival of several other Australian bands that featured female lead singers, such as the Eurogliders, Divinyls and Do Ré Mi. While their early material was naïve pop, their later work glistened with good production values and fine playing, and deserved more recognition.
