Aussie Rock Royalty, Brian Mannix teams up with The Androids for some Classic Covers!
Brian Mannix burst on to the Australian music scene in a blaze of ‘Pop Punk’ glory as the lead singer of 1980s band Uncanny X-Men (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UncannyX-Men(band)) , and in 2006 performed in the Countdown Spectacular (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CountdownSpectacular) and at the 2006 AFL Grand Final (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006AFLGrandFinal). Uncanny X-Men are known for their hits such as "The Party", "How Do You Get Your Kicks?", "50 Years" and "Everybody Wants to Work".
Couple that with The Androids who are fronted by Tim Henwood (The Superjesus, Rogue Traders and a hugely successful international session musician and record producer in his own right), and you’ve got lightning in a bottle.
The Androids brought their own brand of Pop Punk to the early naughties and had a huge international hit with Do It with Madonna, followed by two more top 20 hits and touring the world playing to packed houses as headliners and as support to PINK (performing 40 sold out stadium shows in 2007), KISS, The Darkness and many more.
Together they’ve recorded an album of classic covers the first song being the Billy Idol smash “Rebel Yell”.
