DM3: One Time Two Times Three Red Light
DM3: Dig It The Most
DM3: Rippled Soul

I Stems fecero parte della corrente garage-rock Australiana insieme a Lime Spiders e Celibate Rifles. Il leader era Dominic Mariani e il loro sound era appena piu` melodico della media. I singoli She's A Monster (1985), Tears Me In Two (1985), Love Will Grow (1986) figurano sul primo album, Great Rosebud Hoax (Citadel, 1987). At First Sight, For Always, Sad Girl sono i singoli tratti da At First Sight Violets Are Blue (White, 1987). Buds (Citadel, 1993) e` un'ottima antologia.

Dom Mariani si uni` poi a Darryl Mather dei Lime Spiders per formare i Someloves.

Mariani then founded DM3 with an Italian rhythm section. The power-trio debuted with a string of singles: Foolish (Citadel, 1993), 1 x 2 x Devastated (Screaming Apple, 1994), Making Time (Get Hip, 1994), Soultop (Citadel, 1995), Something Heavy (Citadel, 1995).

The album One Time Two Times Three Red Light (Running Circle, 1995) collects the first two singles and effervescent numbers such as Up In The Air, Like This, Far From Here.

Dig It The Most (Bomp, 1997) is a vastly inferior effort.

The singles Lure, Everything That You Told Me and Dial 04 Josephine are the standout tracks on Rippled Soul (Munster, 1998), that also displays the soul-rock vibrations of Everything That You Told Me.

Their career ended with the single Just Like Nancy (Hellfire Club, 1999).
