This week back in 1981, Adam and the Ants were the biggest act in the U.K. - with their second No. 1 hit in a row - it was the New Romantic era, full of puffy shirts and swagger. They called it "Antmusic for Sex People" - and you can see a bit of the frilly pirate look on a certain purple yoda at that time. It didn't last. Adam's career would crest in 1983 on the success of "Goody Two Shoes" - but by 1985 Ant was focusing on acting, and Antmania was over. But it was glorious fun while it lasted, and we'll revisit the Kings of the Wild Frontier - Adam and the Ants.
