Kings of the Wild Frontier

Adam & The Ants: Adam Ant, Marco Pirroni (vocals, guitar); Kevin Mooney (bass); Merrick, Terry Lee Miall (drums).
1980's KINGS OF THE WILD FRONTIER was actually the second Adam and the Ants record, preceded by an unremarkable postpunk indie effort called DIRK WEARS WHITE SOX, recorded with the musicians who later became Bow Wow Wow. However, it became a massive commercial breakthrough and one of the defining albums of early '80s British chart pop.
Mixing the sort of booming double-drummer rhythms Gary Glitter had popularized years before with a certain post-postpunk cynicism and a remarkable flair for self-mythology, Adam Ant (born Stuart Goddard) and his cohorts, led by ex-Banshees guitarist Marco Pirroni and producer/drummer Chris Hughes, created a bubblegum-pop gem on the same level as the early albums by The Sweet and the Bay City Rollers (which is meant as a compliment). Led by the classic single "Antmusic," the album also features the pounding "Physical (You're So)," and several other goofy gems.
