DM3 - 1993 - Foolish

laying hot-rodded pop with potent hooks and a healthy supply of rock & roll energy, DM3 were founded by singer, guitarist, and songwriter Dom Mariani, who had already established himself as one of the movers and shakers on the Australian garage rock and power pop scene. Born in Fremantle in Western Australia in 1958, Mariani first achieved nationwide recognition with the band the Stems, whose fusion of garage rock and power pop made them cult heroes during their original run from 1983 to 1987. Shortly after the Stems ran their course, Mariani joined the alternative rock band the Someloves, whose relatively brief career lasted until 1990. In 1992, Mariani returned with a new combo, DM3, in which he handled vocals and guitar alongside Ian Campbell on lead guitar and backing vocals, Toni Italiano (a fellow Someloves alumni) on bass and vocals, and Pascal Bartolone (formerly of the Summer Suns) on drums.
