Short-lived Wellington punk outfit (originally known as Johnny Mono And The Steroids) that featured on the Wellingtonzone compilation – a not quite as successfull follow-up to the acclaimed **** release from the previous year.

Forming in April 1979, The Steroids played a pretty standard post-punk style, punctuating their setlist with choice covers by the likes of Wire, Gang Of Four and early Cure. Comprised of Andrew Dray (Ex-52 and a one-time member of The Amps – Bass/Vocals), Alan Jimson (Guitar / Vocals) and Robbie Holmes (also an ex Amp – Drums), the band was a prominent figure in Wellingtons’ early punk scene.
