The Androids Of Mu were a noisy all-girl early post-punk band that emerged from London, UK, in 1979, alongside the likes of The Slits and The Raincoats. They met up in the wild squatter-lands of west London. Suze the Blooz, Corrina, Cozmic 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 in the form of their new, colourful and zazzy reflections of life, from under the long dark shadow of puppet Thatcher’s corporate new Britain. They gigged around, sharing bills with the likes of The Mob, Zounds and The Astronauts. Blood Robots was recorded at lo-fi cult studio Street Level in 1979, this was their only ever album, originally released on Fuck Off Records.
