ADAM ANT 1978! – GET READY TO PARTY ON A FRIED EGG DAY NIGHT W/ ‘DECCA DEMOS’ THE HORROR

Woahhhh, what happened to the middle of your record
Jack? Very unique boot this one, a vinyl boot put out in
2011, all info below, it’s some pretty horrific stuff!
Notes on this version, which is kind of a fan’s remaster.
“I gathered from various sources the demos the band recorded in August 1978 for Decca (and not in December, that I will try to gather for another post), more than one year prior to the release of Dirk. During these sessions, the line-up consisted of Matthew Ashman on guitar and  Dave Barbe on drums, who would leave to form Bow Wow Wow after the Dirk LP, and Andy Warren on bass who would leave for The Monochrome Set. The music played here is rather rough and edgy, influenced actually more by some progressive bands of the seventies (with a touch of Krautrock and a Velvet Underground flavor) than by straight post-Stooges punk, but what’s surprising is how this music has aged well and has been a source of inspiration for so many bands in the late 90’s and early 00’s (nice number for a decade). However, I’ve tried to rectify the sound the best I could, using the best sources for each song, but of course maybe there are better and it’s still not equivalent to the sound of an official LP. But believe me, you will listen to that quite often once you played it the first time. It’s rather addictive.”
THE HORROR!!
