Mostly own, covers rare
Let's see, Adam Ant's stuff is a pan-sexual, glam-punk, British new wave, danceable, self-aggrandizing, self-mocking, leather and feathers and warpaint wearing, really kinda fun and funny sort of music. Adam and the Ants is Gildenstern and Rosencranz to INXS's Hamlet. (brni @ kappamaki . com)
