Adam and the Ants

Adam and the Ants were around from the primordial birth of punk. Yes the later poppy stuff stank, but his early concerts were riots and the music quirky and sexy. My favourite is the last "Whip in My Valise". I also have this on single. It conjours up images of the "Sex" shop in London and bondage. Only images as the closest I got to bondage was messing around with ripped up jeans. The guitarist Marco Pirroni is still involved in music. He too was there when punk started. In fact he played with Siouxsie and Sid Vicious at the 100 Club. His current activities can be discovered at Check out for more history on the band and the other classic punk bands. This website is one I return to regularly as they have great connections to band members who give first hand accounts of the early period of punk.
