Antix formed in 1982 in Los Angeles, California. Their 1984 album 'Get Up, Get Happy' was released on the Heavy Metal America label. Unfortunately information on the web about them is fairly errr non-existant to say the least. Don Dokken (Yes THE Don Dokken) and fellow band member Jeff Pilson were producers of the bands EP.
Antix's song "Daze Gone By" appeared on Hit Parader Magazines 1985 "Cassette Only" (Just a few years ago then! ;-)) Compilation titled "The Wild Bunch" . The compilation cassette consisted of bands who were at the time either just starting out or on the verge of making it big. In addition to Antix, other bands that made an appearence on the compilation included three of the now known "Big Four" bands, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth (!), Lizzy Borden, Raven, Jag Panzer, Grim Reaper and fellow Heavy Metal America band mates; Teaze and Castle Blak!
Antix underwent numerus line-up changes including a new vocalist, Mic Brandon. As a result the band changed both their image and sound, adopting a more Glam Metal style heavily influenced by Motley Crue and Poison. Under this line-up the band released a 12 inch single called "I'll Take Your Love" in 1987 which was before disappearing from the scene completely.
Former Antix Vocalist Greg Crewley did appear again contributing backing vocals and piano on Faster Pussycat's Debut album before forming another band called 'Darling Cruel' who went on to release an album on Polygram.
Their style has been described as lacking in edge or direction, playing it a little "too safe" by critics and not offering the scene anything special
A second album was released in 1998 on Ace Records (USA) titled 'Take It Off' and a CD release of 'Get Up, Get Happy' from Retrospect Records came out in 2006.
