Adam Ant: Sex and Perversion for Teenyboppers

Sex & Perversion for TeenyboppersProfessor Mark Griffiths is a Chartered Psychologist and Director of the International Gaming Research Unit, specialising in the areas of abnormal, social and health psychology with particular emphasis on behavioural addictions, cyberpsychology and the psychology of sexual behaviour.

I have been a fan of Adam Ant's music for nearly twenty years, which might lead some people to conclude that I am a few tracks short of an LP. However, as someone who takes more than a passing interest in human sexual behaviour (I teach a whole course on it here at Nottingham Trent University), I would argue that Adam's music has covered more atypical sexual behaviours than any other recording artist that I can think of (e.g. sadomasochism, bondage, spanking, transvestism, voyeurism, body piercing, fetishistic behaviour etc). Anyone who has followed Adam's career will recall that his music was billed in the late 1970s and early 1980s as "antmusic for sexpeople".

Interview › Neil Barker of Zerox - Salford City Radio

Neil Barker - ZeroxWith the recent news reports that the UK's only state-supported alternative/indie radio station BBC 6 Music could be culled as part of the BBC's spending cuts, the voluntary work of niche local radio stations matter even more in these tough economic climes. Zerox on Salford City Radio, with it's specialist dedication to all things punk, New Wave and early '80s, is one of them. We nailed down Neil Barker, the show's anchorman, producer and tea maker for a quick chat...

Hey Neil, how's about giving us a bit of basic info about yourself...?
I am an only child, born in Bolton in 1972, and have lived in many places in Greater Manchester, but mainly Salford and Chorlton. I currently live in Swinton, Salford with my partner Anne-Marie.

The Ant World is Watching - Let's RSS Feed It!

Adam Ant - Live Aid 1985Welcome to the all-new Ant Lib Online - the official website of the Ant Liberation Front, the world's largest, longest-running organisation solely dedicated to fans of Adam Ant / Adam & the Ants!

After six months of planning and development, we are steadily rolling out the 'Beta' version of Ant Lib Online to Lifetime Subscribers of the Ant Liberation Front. While the website will be available to view by the general public and non-subscribers, this roll-out method will enable us to 'soft launch' the site by restricting interactivity while testing user experience on a smaller (i.e. "safer!") scale.

The Ant Lib Online website you see now is very much a work in progress, so the input and feedback from our most 'active' memberbase (i.e. paid Lifetime Subscribers) is required now more than ever as we build an online community outpost for fans of Adam Ant / Adam & the Ants that reflects the ongoing social revolution of the modern web.
