Adam & The Ants – Antmusic (UK 7″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 2nd May 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1980

“Antmusic” is a song by Adam and the Ants, released as the third single in the UK in 1980 from the album Kings of the Wild Frontier (released 3 November 1980).

“Antmusic” peaked at No. 2 in the UK in January 1981, being held off the top by the re-release of John Lennon’s “Imagine” after his murder in New York City on 8 December 1980.

The music video to “Antmusic” featured the group playing in a discothèque with a giant juke box, and persuading the young audience to turn away from disco music and dance to the new-styled ‘Ant-Music’. The music video was directed by Steve Barron.

The single spent five weeks at No. 1 in Australia, and earned the band platinum certification for sales of over 100,000. Adam and the Ants toured Australia in 1981 and appeared on influential TV pop show Countdown.

Although some overseas singles include the 3:36 album version, the original UK vinyl 7″ single is 3:15. This short version has never appeared on CD to date.

Antmusic 3:17
