BRIAN MANNIX AND THE ANDROIDS
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, and in 2006 performed in the Countdown Spectacular and at the 2006 AFL Grand Final. 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".
Mannix is also known for his television work appearing as a regular on the ABC1 television quiz show Spicks and Specks , also Channel 7's Dancing with the Stars as a contestant and as a regular on Australian cultural icon, Hey Hey it’s Saturday.
In 2016, Mannix was cast as "Buddy," a leading role in the successful stage musical We Will Rock You based on the music of Queen and written by Ben Elton. The musical ran for six months straight from 30 April to 30 October 2016, Australia wide, where it closed with a spectacular performance on Sunday, 30 October 2016.
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 lightening 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.
The Androids have blown the roof off many television shows including: ROVE, Top Of The Pops, Channel V, The Footy Show, Video Hits, Sunrise and MTV.
