Kings of the Wild Frontier/Press Darlings - Adam and the Ants

Adam Ant (Stuart Goddard)
was born in the Marylebone area of London.
His first involvement with the music industry was when he was at art school in North London playing with a band called Bazooka Joe.
After this came a band called The B-Sides. Along with B-Sides members Lester Square and Andy Warren, he went on to form Adam & The Ants.
Their first hit was Kings of the Wild Frontier in April 1980.
After several hit singles, albums and varying line-ups, they disbanded and Adam continued on with a solo career, entering the charts with 'Goody Two Shoes'.
Adam's first solo album was 'Friend Or Foe', the title track being released as a single, and finally giving him a significant penetration into the vast American market.

I'm amazed Press Darlings isn't available on any re-issues... Only discovered today when going through my old 7" records.

Thanks for taking the time for uploading.....

I don't have the password though, looks like it might be time to fire up the ION :)
