Adam and the Ants and double drumming

Okay I admit it! I really liked Adam and the Ants in the early 80s. Probably because of his sexy pirate gear and the Burundi drums. Not sure if the music has stood the test of time or not – what do you think? Looking at the video clip below, he was rather yummy then.

One thing I really liked was the fact that they had 2 drummers. I really like the sound. There have been (and are) other bands with two drummers but not as many as you would think. Here is a list from Wikipedia

One thought

  1. Great flashback. I was a huge fan of Adam and the Ants back in the day. I love the drumming too. I think the music stands the test of time…it’s certainly different, but still good!
