Once upon a time an innocent jazz diva went walking in the dark and scary streets of Melbourne and soon became lost. She ran into a big, bad trio of pseudo-surf rockers and was never the same again. Glidomatix had begun. They play a mix of rocking hits, obscurities and originals. Their influences include Wanda Jackson, Etta James, Big Mama Thornton, Connie Francis, Los Straitjackets, The Ventures and James Bond movies. Glidomatix is a four piece band featuring Jasmine Mahon on vocals, Ben Rogers on guitar, Nikki Scarlett on bass, and Denis Close on drums.
