Adam Ant - Strip - 1983

Adam Ant - Quintessential New Wave music.  Yes, I preferred him with the Ants, but solo works too.  Punk had died, and he was no where near a New Romantic.  Yes, pure New Wave.  I always liked this album because it was some nice pop flare, but still held true to Ant's roots. He wouldn't lose those until Room at the Top.

All the covers were boring, so I took the cassette cover and dressed it up a bit.  Yes, it's a little busy and disjointed, but the fact that it's from a cassette really captures the 80s feel.

As for the tracks, we have album, b-sides, then remixes.  Listen Up.

  1. One of my all-time favorite albums. I liked this one SO much better than "Friend Or Foe." I don't really have a reason for that -- I just like the songs on this one better. I've been a fan ever since I first saw Adam & the Ants do "Antmusic" on American Bandstand (yes, I actually watched that RELIGIOUSLY every Saturday), and I fell in love with the whole "pirate" look. I still love those Ants albums, and his solo work. Great music never gets old!
