Adam & The Ants - Kings of the Wild Frontier (1980)

The original band of "Ants" Adam put together jumped ship to form "Bow Wow Wow" with Malcolm McLaren. Showing that he was determined though, Adam put together a new band, lead by his friend/guitarist Marco Pirroni and came up with this album. Considering "Antmusic" topped the charts and Adam became hugely famous, I guess it all worked out for the best!

Basically this is a bunch of quirky, theatrical, catchy post-punk/pop tunes with a kind of tribal drum feel to it. The tracks are fun, but I'm just not into theatrical music, so unfortunately "It's just not my thing".

Score - 6.5/10

Recommended - Sure
