THE IN-SECT (band)

The Insect (band)

Formed in Adelaide, South Australia.

The In-Sect rock band was formed in Adelaide in 1965 and was an instant hit in the Australian market as a showband.

The In-Sect rock band was formed in Adelaide in 1965 and was an instant hit in the Australian market as a showband. Their performances were legendary and were such that they could successfully perform to ‘teeny-bopper’ crowd, nightclub or cabaret circuit. This was regarded as quite unique at the time.

The In-Sect was an early Adelaide pioneer of the local recording industry enjoying a number of chart successes on the W&G Label. ‘Let This Be a Lesson’ was the biggest hit written by local songwriter Simon Paul and given heavy airplay by top 5AD DJ Bob Francis and then the others followed suit making it as a chartbuster. The In-Sect also fostered at the time then unknown DJ John Vincent’s recording career by also arranging a contract with W&G. The rest is history with ‘Ow Ya Goin’ racing away as a cult smash hit too.

Frankie and the In-Sect today is a six piece band with special four-part vocal harmony of talented, enthusiastic performers that have a special skill to really get a crowd going initiated by band founder and entertainer Frank Sebastyan.
