The Anabollic Steroids surfaced in the late 70's. Probably initially more as an entity than a band. Quotes and various messages were placed in the adds columns of the music papers, notably NME and Sounds.
Ability Stinks was the rallying cry, meaning anyone could get up and give it a go. Pure Energy No Talent, this was The Steroids.
After varying members had come and gone what became a stable line up started gigging in the early 80's. There was a great spirit created amongst the band and friends who came along. The Steroids and their Merry Men and Ladies of course, plyed with Merrydown Cider would often be a thorn in the side of polished slick bands they played with. Soundchecks were Rocket Science.
The band played gigs in varying halls in Kent, which were well attended and good fun. Certainly the Sevenoaks ones were memorable. Also gigs took place in London. A couple at Skunx. One with The Drones and another with The Straps. The Wapping Anarcho Centre was played a couple of times, which led to the band supposedly being banned from the place. Probably for enjoying themselves.
A demo was recorded in early 1982 and a track was put onto the local "Hundreds and Thousands" compilation LP. "I Always Cry At Funerals" was the song which sat amongst other bands in the Bromley area.
