DM3- Hourglass! The Best Of CD. DM3 formed in Perth, Western Australia in 1992 around the songwriting talents of legendary Aussie rocker Dom Mariani. But Dom Mariani’s story really began a decade earlier with a seminal Garage Rock band called The Stems. From 1984 to 1987 The Stems, with Mariani at the helm as singer, songwriter and lead guitarist, rapidly infiltrated Australian radio, press and alternative charts, winning the hearts of critics and a legion of loyal fans. A quick succession of classic singles and a chart-topping album generated interest from as far away as Europe and the United States expanding their fan base internationally. And than The Stems did the unthinkable, disbanded sealing their legend in the annals of Australian music history forever. Shortly after the Stems demise Mariani formed DM3 to keep the momentum of the Stems fan base intact releasing a slew of phenomenal albums and singles utilizing his top notch Power Pop song writing skills. Dom Mariani has a rich history in Power Pop / Garage Rock music, and over time has become associated with the Australian music scene in general. And his work in DM3 is ranked among some of the best in his career. This reissue includes 21 of DM3’s best songs spanning their extensive back catalog and every song is packed with huge guitars, cracking drums, killer harmonies and insanely catchy songwriting chops. Stellar reissue here and Power Pop doesn't get any better than this. Import from Japan with Japanese Obi Strip.
