ANT INVASION: A Documentary of the First Adam and the Ants Invasion

Adam And The Ants lasted just seven years, from 1977 to 1982, and became notable as a cult band during the transition from the punk rock era to the post-punk and new wave era. With their high camp and overtly sexualised stage performances, it’s a shame they’ll likely be undiscovered by newer generations as for awhile, the group had touched the UK music scene like no other, full of solid tunes and intensity and art-inflected pop songs.

Fun fact: Phil Collins plays drums on Ant’s 1985 “Strip” solo album tracks “Puss ‘n Boots” and “Strip”. Singer Anni-Frid Lyngstad, of ABBA fame, also performs the female spoken part on “Strip”.
