What Do You Do?


The Sex Pistols played their first-ever gig on November 5, 1975, at St. Martin's School of Art in London. They actually opened for a band called Bazooka Joe, whose singer and bass player was a bloke named Stuart Goddard. Goddard didn't think the Sex Pistols sounded all that great, but he was so impressed with their performance that he quit Bazooka Joe the next day, determined to form his own band.

Eighteen months later, Goddard re-emerged with a new name, Adam Ant, and a new band called the Ants.

I never got this guy. He looks like some sort of East Village* soldier and nothing like an ant. I mean, if you're gonna go for the look, you can at least spring for some plastic antennae.

I'm posting too much here, aren't I?

(* Crude euphemism.)

No, I'd just say it points up how other people aren't posting enough.

My thoughts exactly. Hear that, people?
