We finally got the 4 of us together to start a band, and straightaway a guy wants to give us a gig but needs to hear a demo "tape" first.
I have a scarlett 2i2 interface which I use at home for personal use with backing tracks and audacity, or occasionally someione will send me a piece to lay aline over.
Anyhow - will this suffice for demo in the practice studio?
Is there an app that might do the a good enough job on a smartphone (android) - never used sucha thing before :)

Urgent advice greatly appreciated

The 2i2 should do a fine job for a stereo demo recording. But, if you don't know how to do it, then you might waste more time trying to figure it out than working on the recording. Do you have a friend or acquaintance or friend of a friend that can do the recording for you?

Where are you located?

Find a small studio locally that will record and mix a demo. It sucks paying when you’re just getting started, but the quality will likely be much better than what you can put together. You’ll save time and have a better product

Take the invitation as a good sign, and pause.

Better to take your time, tighten up the band, and produce a good demo, than to stay in URGENT mode and foul up your reputation before you get started.

In any case, using your phone for that is a terrible idea !
Its 'audio system' is made for transmitting information through the human voice, not music.

I've been told most phones still use 8 bit AD DA converters.
They spend a fortune on displays and use 80s tech for the audio.
How much more per phone could it cost to upgrade to 32 or 64 bit (when making millions of units), 25 cents?
