When Stuart Leslie Goddard donned pirate-inspired attire and face paint and called himself Adam Ant, a flashy, innovative, and captivating creative music genius rose to fame in the eighties. Adam Ant, with his band named Adam and The Ants, was flashed on TV screens with millions of viewers across the UK via the TV show Top of the Pops, performing their ferocious rendition of 'Dog Eat Dog’ in October 1980. Since then, the UK and the rest of the world have been stung by his enormously infectious fusion of pop-punk, ska, and glam-rock music.
'Antmania' was the label that aptly described the rise of fandoms, which were borne out of the release of the album 'Kings of the Wild Frontier in November 1980, which charted at number 1 for a whopping 12 weeks. The album title track and lead singles ‘Antmusic’ both hit number 2 in the UK chart, while ‘Dog Eat Dog’ smashed the world music charts at number 4. The said album also bagged the Brit Award for ‘Best British Album’. The following year, Adam Ant continued his winning streak with the chart-topping smash ‘Stand and Deliver’ perching on the number 1 spot for 5 straight weeks, making it his most successful single of all time. The song also gave him the prestigious Ivor Novello Award For Songwriting.
In 1982 Adam Ant had officially gone solo. Music critics defined his debut solo album, "Friend or Foe", as "tongue-in-cheek tunes, delivered with an excess of flair and good humour". It was also touted as "one of Ant's best records and one of the best new wave albums". Why the name Adam Ant? He gets this question all the time, and has come up with a really great and relevant answer. "I really knew I wanted to be Adam, because Adam was the first man. Ant I chose because, if there's a nuclear explosion, the ants will survive." Indeed, Adam not only survived, but he reinvented himself through his fashion and cultural influence as well as his magnetic and electrifying persona on movies and television as an actor. Fans from all over the world as still enjoying his staying power as Adam Ant continues to deliver electrifying performances all over the world.
