We love Adam Ant for his music, his style, the inspiration he gives to other sufferers of mental illness and to anybody who has ever had to bounce back. Most of all, we love Adam Ant because he appeared at a free festival in Ashford in the rain on a Sunday afternoon and made us all smile - none more than my 13 year old daughter. What a legend!
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 transition from the ’70s punk rock era to the new-wave post punk-music era. Although the band started off with a punk-influenced sound, it soon moved on to New Wave motivated by new sources such as the drum-heavy “Burundi Beat” heard on “Dog Eat Dog”.
