Kings of the Wild Frontier

Kings of the Wild Frontier is a New Wave-punk album by Adam & the Ants, released in 1980 (see 1980 in music). After having his previous backing band wooed away by producer Malcolm McLaren, who used them to form Bow Wow Wow, Adam Ant recorded Kings of the Wild Frontier with guitarist Marco Pirroni. In spite of the difficulties with the recording, Kings of the Wild Frontier has become acknowledged as a classic of artsy pop-oriented post punk rock.
