Androids Of Mu were a noisy all-female early post-punk band that emerged from London in 1979, alongside the likes of The Slits and The Raincoats.

Legend has it they had been "androidised" by Atlantean scientists and sent forward to us by the Timelords of the ancient Utopian Civilisation of Mu, programmed with messages to help us avoid our own self-destruction following the northern galactic alignment of 2012.

They crash-landed early, all over Europe in the mid-1970's and met up in the wild squatter-lands of Frestonia, West London.

Suze da Blues, Corrina, Cozzie and Bess became immersed in the local counter-culture. They grounded themselves in psychedelic synthesizer and guitar music, playing with Planet Gong and Here & Now and musicians from Hawkwind. When they finally got hold of a cheap synth and a noisy guitar of their own, they used them at full volume, with fat bass and bouncing drums to record an album expressing the remembered fragments of the Mu-an messages - in the form of their new, colourful and zazzy reflections of life under the long, dark shadow of Thatcher in New Corporate Britain.

The Androids often performed with other West London squatland heroes including The Mob, Zounds and The Astronauts. They declined an offer to record for Crass Records and toured in Britain and Europe until about 1983.

"The painting on the cover of our LP is by radical artist Monica Sjoo.

We don't want nuclear weapons on this planet which is why Atomic X is on the LP and why in the 80's we and many other bands went to play at the large protest against nuclear weapons sited at Greenham Common, invited by the Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp in which Monica was active.

When Suze went to one of Monica's exhibitions and saw this shocking ugly/beautiful painting vision for Blood Robots she just had to ask her if we could use it.

One of her other paintings led to Sjoo being reported to the police for blasphemy!"

The protest camp at Greenham Common was established in 1981 after 34 women and four men arrived at the Berkshire site having marched 120 miles from Wales. In 1983, 70,000 protesters formed a 23 km human chain from Greenham to Aldermaston

Suze da Blues returned to Mu, August 2007.  Forever Free.
