ADAM AND THE ANTS : DOG EAT DOG [KINGS OF THE WILD FRONTIER, 1980]

Το Kings Of The Wild Frontier έχει στο μυαλό μου μια πολύ ξεχωριστή θέση ανάμεσα στις κυκλοφορίες της New Wave περιόδου. Χάρη σ’ αυτό, ο Stuart Leslie Goddard, ευρύτερα γνωστός ως Adam Ant, “έκλεισε θέση” στην ιστορία της ποπ, ή έστω θα έπρεπε να έχει “κλείσει”. Δεν συναντάς συχνά τραγούδια με την πρωτοτυπία και τη δύναμη του “Dog Eat Dog” – και αρκετών ακόμα απ’ το ίδιο άλμπουμ.

Kings Of The Wild Frontier holds a very special place in my mind among the realeases of the New Wave period. Thanks to that, Stuart Leslie Goddard, better known as Adam Ant, took his place in pop history, or at least, he should have.
It’s not every day that you hear a song so vivid and so original like
“Dog Eat Dog” – and many others from the same album.

You may not like the things we do
Only idiots ignore the truth
It’s easy to lay down and hide
Where’s the warrior without his pride?
We’re gonna move real good (Yeah, right)
We’re gonna dress so fine (Okay)
It’s dog eat dog eat dog eat dog eat dog eat dog eat dog eat dog eat dog
Leapfrog the dog and brush me, daddy-o
Ah, ah, ah, ah
It’s easy to lay down and hide
Where’s the warrior without his pride?
You may not like the things we say
What’s the difference, anyway?
We’re gonna move real good (Yeah, right)
We’re gonna dress so fine (Okay)
It’s dog eat dog eat dog eat dog eat dog eat dog eat dog eat dog eat dog
Leapfrog the dog and brush me, daddy-o
Ah, ah, ah, ah
It makes me proud, so proud of you
I see innocence shining through
It makes me proud, so proud of you
I see innocence shining through
It makes me proud, so proud of you
I see innocence shining through
It makes me proud, so proud of you
I see innocence shining through
It makes me proud, so proud of you
I see innocence shining through
It makes me proud, so proud of you
I see innocence shining through…
