Kings of the Wild Frontier is the second album by English new wave band Adam and the Ants. It was released in November 1980 by CBS Records International. This album introduced the "Burundi beat" sound to popular music. After having his previous backing band wooed away by producer Malcolm McLaren to form Bow Wow Wow, Adam Ant recorded Kings of the Wild Frontier with guitarist Marco Pirroni as his new writing partner.
A new royal family, a wild nobility We are the family (Yeah) A new royal family, a wild nobility We are the family. No method in our madness (Yeah) Just pride about our manner (Yeah) Antpeople are the warriors (Yeah) Antmusic is the banner (Yeah). And even when you're healthy And your colour schemes delight Down below those dandy clothes You're just a shade too white. Shade too white Shade too white Shade too white. I feel beneath the white There is a redskin suffering From centuries of taming I feel beneath the white There is a redskin suffering From centuries of taming
Adam and the rest of the Ants had just worked up how to exploit the Burundi style when McLaren pirated the boys off to support Annabella Lwin in Bow Wow Wow - using the very same sound they had developed with Adam Ant. It was now a race to get that sound into the stores first, and Adam lucked out when he joined forces with guitarist Marco Pirroni, who quickly proved to be invaluable. If image was all that they had, they would've remained a fad, but Kings of the Wild Frontier remains a terrific album because it not only has some tremendous songs - the title track and "Antmusic" are classic hits, while "Killer in the Home" and "Physical (You're So)" are every bit their equal - but because it fearlessly, imperceptibly switches gears between giddy. and ominous, providing nothing short of a thrill ride in its 13 songs. That's why it still sounds like nothing else years after its release.
