[NEW OLD ROMANCE] Adam Ant is the dandy highwayman your punk history’s too scared to mention. As with Billy Idol—another 100 Club survivor whose early ’80s ubiquity owes much to a strong profile, stronger lead guitarist and implicit understanding of the tongue buried in pierced cheeks—all awkward stabs at ’90s relevance have been removed from the permanent record. As with Shane MacGowan, the sense of self shining through his earliest recordings should never fully dissipate. There’s an overwhelming temptation to view this latest phase—recent release Adam Ant Is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner’s Daughter sounds every bit the taut, disciplined, reflective-yet-of-the-moment career rebirth its title suggests—as less of a comeback than a sequel. To ridicule his past few decades’ output or the now overly familiar outfits ignores all that was daft and glorious about Kings of the Wild Frontier, Prince Charming and Friend Or Foe. He’s hardly burnished that legacy, but after singularly hoisting a flag of towering elan above the silliness of political creeds or personal revelations only to see the battle won by the po-faced and puerile, what would you do? ’Tis Antmusic, after all. There needn’t be someone inside.
