Dirk Wears White Sox is the debut studio album by English new wave band Adam and the Ants. It was released on 30 November 1979 by record label Do It. It was the first number one album on the UK Independent Albums Chart when the chart debuted in Record Week in 1980.[1]

Background

Dirk Wears White Sox was made with an early line-up of Adam and the Ants, which disbanded after the album was released. Guitarist Matthew Ashman and drummer David Barbarossa went on to form Bow Wow Wow with then-Ants bassist Leigh Gorman (who only played one gig with the Ants and was not involved in any studio recordings). Original bassist Andy Warren had departed shortly after recording the album to join former Ants guitarist Lester Square in The Monochrome Set. Many of the songs, notably "Cleopatra" and "Never Trust a Man (With Egg on his Face)", remained a part of Adam Ant's live repertoire throughout his career, both with the Ants and later as a solo artist.

The album title refers to classic British film icon Dirk Bogarde.[2]

Production

The album was recorded 12–24 August 1979 at Sound Development Studios, London and mixed 25–29 August.[3] All instrumentation and guide vocals were completed in the first three days. Of the fourteen tracks recorded, three - "Friends", "Kick" and "Physical" - did not proceed beyond this stage, although Physical was secretly released on the B-side of 2000 copies of the single "Zerox" in July 1980.[4] The remainder of the sessions were dedicated to recording finished lead and backing vocals by Ant for the eleven released tracks.

Five tracks from the album, "Day I Met God", "Cleopatra", "Catholic Day", "Never Trust A Man (With Egg On His Face)" and "Family of Noise" - plus all three rejected tracks - had previously been recorded in 1978 for the Ants' first label Decca Records - "Kick" at RAK Studios in Chalbert Street, London, produced by Snips, the other seven at Decca's own studio at Broadhurst Gardens, West Hampstead, produced by Ant himself.[5] Prior to this, all songs on the released album except "Digital Tenderness", "Nine Plan Failed" and "Cleopatra" were recorded on 4-track by Ant at home in Notting Hill Gate 25–27 July 1978; "Cleopatra" and "Physical" had been similarly taped by Ant at home in Chelsea, 20 November 1977.[5]

Musical style

Ant biographer James Maw reports in his 1981 book The Official Adam Ant Story that Ant wished to make "a stylish album with all the qualities of soul and funk."[6] Ant confirmed in a 2014 interview for Classic Pop that the album was "me trying to make a Donna Summer record... I know it doesn't sound like that, but check out Dave (Barbe)'s drumming."[7]

Mojo's Danny Eccleston classifies Dirk Wears White Sox as a post-punk album.[8] Chris Woodstra of AllMusic described the album's style as a "sometimes-awkward fusion of punk, glam and minimalist post-punk with bizarre images and disturbing tales of alienation, sex and brutality."[9] Peter Parrish of Stylus Magazine wrote that "Dirk slips somewhere between The Banshee's [sic] Scream and Gang of Four's Entertainment; all stark, angular and brittle."[10]

Releases

Dirk Wears White Sox was released on 30 November 1979 by Do It Records.[11] The three out-takes were later released in 1982 as the 7 inch EP The B-Sides as well as a 12 inch EP The Antmusic EP also containing a remix of Cartrouble (Parts 1 & 2).

The album was reissued in 1983, featuring a different album cover taken from a December 1979 video for the song "Zerox". "Catholic Day" and "Day I Met God" were dropped and Cartrouble pts 1 and 2 were replaced by "Cartrouble" in its single version and its B-side, a re-recording of "Kick!" which contained completely different lyrics from the rejected album version and featured Jon Moss on drums (who later went on to join Culture Club). This edition also adds two other songs from the same era not on the original LP: both sides of the "Zerox"/ "Whip in My Valise" single.

It was reissued again in 1995 by Sony, featuring the original black-and-white album art in somewhat cropped form and with the dropped songs reinstated as bonus tracks at the end. The lettering on the sleeve was recreated in the style of the original and does not feature the stroke through the letter O in the word "Sox"; it also substitutes a letter "Z" in place of the zig-zagged "S" in the word "Ants" (previously a common practice among unofficial merchandisers around the time of the album's original release). Later pressings of the 1995 edition substituted the Antmusic EP remix of Cartrouble (Parts 1 & 2) in place of the Cartrouble A-side.

The album was remastered and reissued in 2004 with the original tracklisting restored and the singles/EP material included as bonus tracks.

A white vinyl edition was released by Ant's own label Blueblack Hussar Records in spring 2014. To tie in with this, on 19 April, Ant performed the full album at the Hammersmith Apollo with a band including former Ants David Barbarossa and Leigh Gorman, preceding this with several UK tour dates. A launch party gig for the white vinyl album was held at the 100 Club. Both London concerts were filmed and later released as the DVD album Dirk Live at the Apollo. Ant would subsequently perform the full album again with his regular band for four nights at the Islington Assembly Hall in November 2014 and a full UK tour in spring 2015.

In his retrospective review of the album for AllMusic, Chris Woodstra wrote that "while the somewhat pretentious, overly arty lyrics and inexperienced playing are a drawback, the album offers a fascinating look at the Ants' formative years, capturing a raw energy that would be sacrificed for more polish on subsequent releases."[9] Reviewing its 2004 reissue in Stylus Magazine, Peter Parrish called the album a "rather marvellous record of jagged jitters" and found that it "sounds a great deal more contemporary than later Ants material."[10] Uncut likewise opined that unlike the band's subsequent albums, Dirk Wears White Sox "sounds as though it was made last week".[13] Trouser Press was more critical, describing Ant's vocals as "dour" and "uncomfortable" and the band as sounding "dead" and "far too slow", though noting that the 1983 version is "far better" than the 1979 version.[14]

Adam Ant ist der Künstlername des britischen Sängers und Musikers Stuart Leslie Goddard (* 3. November 1954 in London). Er war zwischen 1977 und 1982 Frontmann der erfolgreichen Punk- und New-Wave-Band Adam & the Ants und begann danach eine Solokarriere.

Biografie

Die Band formierte sich 1977 und bestand neben Goddard aus Lester Square (Gitarre), Andy Warren (Bass) und Paul Flanagan (Schlagzeug). Die Besetzung wechselte jedoch bis zur Aufnahme des ersten Albums 1979 mehrfach. Der frühere Manager der Sex Pistols, Malcolm McLaren, stieß im Oktober 1979 auf die Band, die bis dahin nur mäßig erfolgreich war. McLaren verpflichtete die damaligen Ants-Mitglieder Matthew Ashman (Gitarre), Leigh Gorman (Bass) und David Barbarossa (Schlagzeug) für die neue Band Bow Wow Wow. Goddard formierte danach abermals neue Ants, nun bestehend aus Marco Pirroni (Gitarre), Kevin Mooney (Bass) und den beiden Schlagzeugern Terry Lee Miall und Merrick, bürgerlich Chris Hughes. Für das Album Prince Charming stieg dann noch Gary Tibbs von Roxy Music mit ein.

Seit 1982 erschienen die Platten nur noch unter dem Namen Adam Ant (ein Klang-Wortspiel mit dem englischen ‚adamant‘ = steinhart, felsenfest), wobei auf der LP Strip Phil Collins für die Singleauskopplungen Strip und Puss’n Boots sowohl Schlagzeug spielte als auch die Lieder produzierte.

1985 trat Adam Ant mit dem Lied Vive le Rock bei Live Aid auf, unterbrach jedoch anschließend für mehrere Jahre seine musikalische Karriere. Erst seit 1990 folgen in längeren Abständen wieder neue Veröffentlichungen.

Seine größten Hits hatte er in der ersten Hälfte der 1980er Jahre mit Antmusic, Stand and Deliver, Dog Eat Dog, Prince Charming, Ant Rap und Goody Two Shoes.

Seit Mitte der 1980er versuchte er sich verstärkt als Schauspieler, sowohl in Spielfilmen (unter anderem Nomads, Cold Steel, Trust Me) und Fernsehserien (darunter Sledge Hammer, Ausgerechnet Alaska, Nikita) als auch auf der Bühne (Funeral Games, Entertaining Mr. Sloane), seine einzige Hauptrolle hatte er in der Vampir-Komödie Love Bites.

Pläne für eine 1980er-Tribute-Tour mussten 2002 aufgegeben werden, da Adam Ant unter einer bipolaren Störung litt. 2003 nahm er eine neue Version seines Hits Stand and Deliver auf, mit geändertem Text, unter dem Titel Save the Gorilla. Dieser und einige weitere Songs, die zugunsten des Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund auf einer Maxi-CD erscheinen sollten, wurden (nach Einspruch des Mitkomponisten Marco Pirroni sowie der Plattenfirma) nie offiziell veröffentlicht.

Am 24. September 2007 stand Adam im Rahmen der Präsentation seiner Autobiografie Stand and Deliver in Bloomsbury (England) das erste Mal seit fast 12 Jahren wieder auf einer Bühne. Begleitet von seinem langjährigen Freund Dave Pash, einem klassischen Gitarristen, spielte er akustische Versionen eigener Stücke sowie Coverversionen und las Teile aus seiner Biografie. Adam verließ die Bühne nach mehreren Zugaben mit dem Versprechen, es werde „mehr von Adam Ant“ geben. Von diesem Auftritt erschien Ende 2008 unter dem Titel Live at the Bloomsbury ein Mitschnitt auf CD, der nur online erhältlich ist.[1]

Viele Musiker nennen Adam Ant als Einfluss, z. B. Elastica, Gene, Nine Inch Nails, Client, Robbie Williams, Kaiser Chiefs und Marilyn Manson.
