Apparently, in Geldof's book, he said that Adam Ant was over the hill in 1985 so he gave him one song in Live Aid almost as a favor, which is kind of funny since I remember him still riding high on Strip, though I don't really remember much of Vive Le Rock. Plus, I Don't Like Mondays had come out in 1979 so Geldof really wasn't one to talk.

I listened to Kings of the Wild Frontier the other night, first time I listened to anything from that album other than Ant Music in I don't know how long. Obviously the African drum beat strikes you right off the bat but I'd forgotten how dark songs like Ant Invasion and Killer In The Home were. Great stuff!  I haven't been this pleasantly disturbed by music since Gernot played the creepy Roman version video of Tainted Love by Soft Cell!

Of course, I don't watch or listen to anything nowadays without looking it up on wikipedia, so I was surprised to learn that Press Darlings and You're So Physical were only on the US release.  I loved those songs.  So New Wave.




Strip was long over by 1985 (mostly because it died early). I remember when he was promoting Vive Le Rock. He appeared on the Today Show (early morning, national news show, in case any Brits are unfamiliar). He looked so normal and tame. No more king of the wild frontier.

Okay. I'll stop with the puns now. \:\)
