ADAM AND THE ANTS
by Mark Nobes, chief editor
I've nothing against disco, but it had become long in the tooth by 1981, and we were all looking for something our parents didn't want to listen to. With punk music being a little too raw for my liking (and also past its sell by date) Adam & The Ants post-punk, new wave sound was perfection!
Then we have the fashion. In the video, Adam Ant enters the dancefloor wearing a replica of the hussars military jacket, which is not something you would see at your regular disco, not in my sleepy village, at least! Nonetheless, Adam certainly has an air of confidence about him, and he quickly becomes the king of not just the wild frontier, but also the dancefloor.
