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.

Adam Ant – Strip (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 26th August 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

A. Front

Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on September 2, 2010. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon Super 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“Strip” was released as a single in 1983 and reached #42 US, #41 UK. Phil Collins plays drums on the track, and singer Anni-Frid Lyngstad, of ABBA fame, performs the female spoken part on the song. The track was taken from Adam Ant’s second solo album released in 1983 also titled “Strip”. The album marked a decline in Ant’s success, as it only reached #65 in the United States and #20.

Adam Ant – Vive Le Rock (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 8th March 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“Vive Le Rock” is a song by English musician Adam Ant from his third solo album of the same name (1985). CBS Records released it as the album’s second single on July 1, 1985. That summer, Ant secured a spot at the Live Aid concert – the first live performance of the “Ant/Marco/Wiczling/De Niro” band – but was asked to cut his set to one song, for which he chose his new single, the “Vive le Rock”. The single, however stalled at #50 in the UK, in part due to a pressing error with many copies featuring the A-side track on both sides.

“Vive Le Rock” did not chart on the US Billboard Hot 100 but did make an appearance on the US dance chart peaking at #29.

The b-side Greta X is a track recorded by Adam in 1978.
