(ONLY FIT FOR THE BIN" WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT ….'THE STEROID KIDDIES' .... PUNK COLLECTORS FROM AROUND THE WORLD WILL BE FAMILIAR WITH THIS BAND DUE TO THE FACT THEY SELF RELEASED THEIR DEBUT SINGLE BACK IN 1979 WHEN RELEASING YOUR OWN RECORD WAS THE NORM… COMING FROM MANCHESTER AND ORIGINALLY CALLED THE STANCE WAY BACK IN 1977. THEY PLAYED CONSTANTLY AROUND THE MANCHESTER GIG CIRCUIT AND EVEN VENTURED DOWN TO LONDON TO DO A FEW GIGS. DEMO TAPES WERE SENT OUT TO ALL THE PRESS AND RECORD LABELS… SADLY NOTHING CAME OF THEIR EFFORTS APART FROM GARRY BUSHELL GIVING ONE OF THEIR TRACKS A THUMBS UP IN SOUNDS IN SEPTEMBER ‘78… AFTER PLAYING ALONG SIDE ALL THEIR COUNTERPARTS THE BUZZCOCKS, WARSAW (AKA JOY DIVISION), SLAUGHTER & THE DOGS ETC THEY WERE LEFT ON THE SHELF. NOT TO BE PUT OFF, THEY DECIDED TO CHANGE THEIR NAME AFTER MIKE THE SINGER BECAME ILL AND NEEDED STEROIDS! SO THE STEROID KIDDIES WERE BORN… THE NEXT TWO YEARS THE BAND SLOGGED ON AND PLAYING MANY GIGS BUT SADLY THE FAME NEVER BECKONED AND CALLED IT A DAY IN ‘81. THE BAND SPLINTERED INTO OTHER BANDS BUT STILL REMAINED GOOD FRIENDS. ROGER JOINED A LATER VERSION OF THE DRONES AND GEOFF JOINED THE OUT. FAST FORWARD 25 ODD YEARS AND DETOUR RECORDS CONTACTED THE BAND AND SUBSEQUENTLY TWO OF THEIR ORIGINAL TRACKS APPEARED ON ONE OF THE BORED TEENAGERS COMPILATION ALBUMS AND THE BAND WERE INVITED TO REFORM TO PLAY THE LAUNCH PARTY IN 2006. THEY ENJOYED BE BACK TOGETHER THEY DECIDED TO DO A FEW OTHER GIGS AND STILL PLAY THE OCCASIONAL GIG. IN 2011, ONE OF THE BAND MEMBERS WAS HAVING A DE-JUNK DAY AND CAME ACROSS THE ORIGINAL STANCE / STEROID KIDDIES MASTER TAPES. THEY COULDN’T BELIEVE THEIR LUCK! THEY BOOKED THEM SELF INTO THE LOCAL STUDIO TO HAVE THEM TRANSFERRED. SADLY ALL THE TRACKS WERE IN A POOR STATE AND WERE FALLING APART WHILE LISTENING TO THEM IN FRONT OF THEIR EYES AND SADLY COULDN’T BE SALVAGED APART FROM THE TRACK ‘SLOGANS’ WHICH IS FEATURED HERE. HOWEVER, THEY HAD FORGOTTEN HOW GOOD THESE TRACKS WERE AND WENT AHEAD TO RECORD AND RECREATE THE LONG LAST TRACKS FROM THAT DUSTY OLD MASTER TAPE. THEY RECORDED ELEVEN TRACKS IN THE SAME WAY WHILE KEEPING WITH THEIR YOUTHFUL ENERGY AND ANGST!
