    Have started to upload the Adam Ant biography starting with 1977.

    It's a quick run through Adam's career with photos to boot.

    [colour=red]Biography[/colour]

    It is linked through the Features page.

    Great to see this, Monk!

    I am by no means going to argue dates with you, but something seems internally inconsistent in what you wrote.  Perhaps it's just the way it's phrased, but if I may:

    "Soon afterwards, through Jordan's contacts, Adam got involved in the film "Jubilee". He was given the acting part of The Kid and the band got to play a version of the song "Plastic Surgery", which was featured in the 1978 release of Derek Jarman's film. The song is also included on the soundtrack album for the movie along with "Deutscher Girls", (original version rather than the overdubbed lyric release from 1982). [colour=yellow]It was to be the debut release for the band that would then be known as Adam and the Ants[/colour]

    The band at this time featured Adam (vocals and occasional guitar), Andy Warren (bass), Dave Barbe (drums), Mark Ryan (guitar) and Jordan (vocals).
    They began to pound the gig circuit in their home ground of London playing such venues as The Vortex, The Roxy and the Marquee. They also started to get gigs out of the capital and played as far afield as Liverpool, Birmingham and Plymouth.

    By October Mark Ryan was out and John Beckett, who was to be known as Johnny Bivouac for the 7 months that he is was the band, took his place. [colour=yellow]For this change of band members The Ants are no more, the band were then to be called Adam and the Ants.[/colour]"

    The Jubilee album was recorded in 1977 (with overdubs in January 1978) and released in 1978 after the band had changed their name.
