New Boots and Pants - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1983

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. Familiar faces also perform; ex-Golden Harvest vocalist Karl Gordon and Alastair Riddell, whose 1974 TV debut with glam rockers Space Waltz confused some older viewers. Riddell gets in his new romantic groove, while his band Modern Contours work their synthesisers; cheekbones, fringes and scarves are de rigueur. A medley of back to back hits from Blondie and The Police showcase the cast's joyful energy. 

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
