Shocked? I think I was….
If you only know Adam Ant as the Dandy Highwayman or Prince Charming this may come as a bit of a surprise. From 1990 and off the album, ‘Manners & Physique,’ it was only released in a few countries. Produced by André Cymone (ex-bass player with Prince and former husband of Jody Watley) so you will get the idea of the sort of sound on here, Adam Ant going all electronic. Very interesting even though Was (Not Was) would have been a bit peeved with the “Booom-lacka-Boom” steal from “Walk The Dinosaur” The “Extended Mix. sees Justin Strauss gives the production an extra bit of electronic gloss but those lyrics, mmmmmmm? The “Alternative Mix” is definite synth pop and it even has some sub-bass in it!
One for the fans and the completists!
Thanks Mike for this one!
