Adam and the Ants

Adam and the Ants was a new wave band during the late 1970s and early 1980s. It was one of the bands at the time that marked the transitionfrom the 70s punk rock era to the new-wave post punk-music era.

Led by Adam Ant (real name Stuart Goddard), the band formed in 1977 in London, england, consisting of Lester Square (guitar), Andy Warren(bass guitar) and Paul Flanagan (drums). Square was replaced by Mark Gaumont early in the band’s career, before the release of their debutalbum Dirk Wears White Sox (1979, do it records). The album was somewhat dark, with post punk riffs and some vestiges of glam rock. Thealbum was not a success, so Adam & the Ants hired Malcolm McLaren (manager of the Sex Pistols) to help with their image.

While preparing for their second album, McLaren convinced the Ants to leave Adam and form Bow Wow Wow. A new version of the Ants wasformed by Marco Pirroni (guitar), Kevin Mooney (bass guitar) and two drummers, Terry Lee Miall and Merrick. Pirroni would go on to become aninfluential member of the group, and cowrite many of their songs with Adam Ant. « hide
