Lost Hits of the New Wave #24


"Antmusic" by Adam and the Ants



In my review, at Biff Bam Pop this week, of Adam Ant's new album Adam Ant Is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying The Gunner’s Daughter, I talk a bit about my first impressions of Adam and the Ants. You can check it out here.

I remember playing both the Kings of the Wild Frontier and Prince Charming albums constantly and obsessively. I loved them. As I had mentioned before with The Police, I also got to see the music as well on "Rockworld." It was the beginning of a life long love affair.

No matter how you slice it, Adam Ant is a true superstar of the New Wave, whether he agrees to the label or not. His career has spanned from the mid-1970s to today with this fabulous new album.

Lost Hit? This was a smash hit in half the countries across the globe. Great track, Glenn.

Perhaps the two tracks are more mainstream than most of the stuff I feature on Lost Hits, but let's be honest, this was just to dress up my review of the new album over at Biff Bam Pop, but still, good to hear the oldies.
