Belfast '76 style punk rock band with ties to many other bands. Formed in 1977, played their first gig February 1978, and split due to musical differences in April 1978 following a trip to London hawking their demo tape to various labels.
Joe Zero and Aza joined the rhythm section of Victim, who'd also just split up, to form Emergency who ultimately continued as Victim without Aza. Aza did a fanzine called Nine to Five (only 2 issues published, in 1978) and later played in f-Stop and Colenso Parade.
A revamped Androids lineup emerged in 1979 with Steve Rainey (guitar), Gerry Mitchell (guitar), Robin Holmes (ex Ask Mother, bass) and Billy Britt (drums). Jeremy Nicholl played rhythm guitar for a while during the second half of 1978.
Keith McVeigh of Sample And Hold played in an early Androids lineup with Zero, Aza and one Seamus Cassidy. There was related project called Zone Ends in 1977 with Zero, Aza and McVeigh who are pictured in Nine To Five #5.
Though there were no official releases during the bands lifetime, there were at least two tapes in circulation, one a demo of "The Mince", the other a live set recorded at The Harp. Other song titles include "Lipstick Heroes", "Cheap Thrills" and "Bastards".
