This episode of song and dance show New Boots and Pants is a feast of new wave hits. The young cast high-kick around a 'pick n mix' inspired set, covering songs by Bananarama, The Go-Go's and Adam Ant. The guest vocalists are ex-Golden Harvest singer Karl Gordon and Alastair Riddell (glam rockers Space Waltz), who gets in his new romantic groove, while his band Modern Contours work their synthesisers. Cheekbones, fringes and scarves are on display. A medley of back to back hits from Blondie and The Police showcase the joyful energy of the performers, including James Cross (from documentary James & Issey).
So unlock your juke box and do us all a favour, that music's lost its flavour, try another flavour, Antmusic, Antmusic...– Adam Ant ushers in the new wave with his 1980 pop hit Ant Music
