Desperate is the debut studio album and second overall album by Australian rock band Divinyls, released in 1983 by Chrysalis Records. The album contains the hits "Boys in Town", "Science Fiction" and "Siren (Never Let You Go)". Divinyls formed in 1980, founded by Mark McEntee and fronted by lead singer Chrissy Amphlett. After scoring several gigs, they were discovered by Australian director Ken Cameron. This led to Divinyls providing the entire soundtrack for his film Monkey Grip (1982)

Album · 1983 · 10 Songs. Desperate is loaded with anxious, energised New Wave that more than lives up to the album’s title. Chrissy Amphlett may play a pouting schoolgirl on the front cover, but she’s all fiery passion in the grooves. Highlights like the hard-charging Boys In Town and the zanier Science Fiction see the band beat Blondie and Pretenders at their own game, turning acid-tongued lyrics into breathy provocations.

About Desperate album. Album Desperate (1982). Christina Amphlett, Mark McEntee.

The first full-length album by my personal pick for Greatest Band Of All Time; ten tracks, nine fronted and one co-fronted by the gorgeous, enthralling and mesmerising Christina Amphlett. The one 'co-fronted' song is "Siren Song", which trades lead vocals back and forth between Christina and a male singer (the liner notes do not specify whether it's Mark McEntee or Bjarne Ohlin, both of whom provide back-up vocals elsewhere on "Desperate"), the only time a DiVinyls record has actually used male vocals in a co-lead position, and wonderfully.
