War Machine is the title of Andrea True's only solo album and is not really an Andrea True Connection album. It was released only in Europe in 1980 by Italian label Ricordi International.[1] The album was a big change in musical direction since none of its songs can be classified as Disco.[2] and it really is more of a Rock/New Wave record.

The album had two singles: "War Machine", released by Ricordi International in Italy, and "Make My Music For Me", released by Atom Records in Austria. For some unknown reason, Atom changed the name of the song "Makin' Music For Money" to "Make My Music For Me". All 3 of these vinyl releases are quite rare and have never been released in any other format. A video exists for the title track, War Machine. A poor quality copy of it can be found on YouTube.
