Adam Ant & The Good The Mad & The Lovely Posse
On Thursday, 16th October 1980, millions of living rooms across the UK, were set on fire by the blazing performance on Top of the Pops by Adam and the Ants. After 3 ferocious, minutes of ‘Dog Eat Dog’ the phenomenon immediately began and they would dominate the charts for the following few years with extraordinary success. But this was no ‘overnight success’, Adam Ant had been working hard behind the warpaint and feathers for his moment.
It had been the culmination of years of toil; the journey had started at Hornsey College of Art, where Adam had teamed up with some college friends to form the band Bazooka Joe. With Adam on bass guitar, they played the pubs and colleges around London and it was on a cold November night, in 1975, that Adam saw a group that was to change his life forever.
