VIDEO OF THE WEEK: ADAM & THE ANTS – ‘STAND AND DELIVER’
July 15, 2019
There are few bands to have taken the reins of the early 80s nascent video age with quite the same degree of gusto as Adam & The Ants.
Yet given Adam’s pedigree as a keen of student of glam rock and pop culture, it should come as no surprise.
Indeed, not only is the video for this No. 1 single a benchmark of the times thanks to the ingenious use of clever storyboarding, flash costumes and copious amounts of glamour, it’s a cultural signpost that still holds up.
And watch out for an early appearance by actress Amanda Donahoe, who was then Adam Ant’s girlfriend.
