Dolly Mixture was a British post-punk band formed in 1978 by bassist and vocalist Debsey Wykes, guitarist Rachel Bor, and drummer Hester Smith. They started out as complete amateurs (popular rumour had it that they first got involved into the music business as the then girlfriends of The Damned members, though it was only Rachel Bor and Captain Sensible who were a couple). However, they soon proved to be one of the most talented new-wave pop acts. Although they had their taste of Top 40 success as the backing vocals for the Captain Sensible's hit "Wot", as a band they remained neglected by the media and the general public alike. Near the end of their run, the group self-released a double album of demo tracks, which was re-released in 1995. The group disbanded in 1983. Debsey and Hester went on to form the band Coming Up Roses, Rachel played with the band Fruit Machine until 1999, and Debsey later collaborated with Saint Etienne and formed the band Birdie.
