Fast follow up to their debut EP ‘Jackie Says’ (Damgood269- 10”), The A-side is a new song with a bit of a T-Rex flavour to it, The b-side is a punk techno noise fest!
The Wolfmen is the new band from Marco Pironni (Adam and The Ants, Sinead O’Connor) and Chris Constantinou (Adam and The Ants, Jackie Onassid). While many of The Ants’ punk-era cohorts tour the UK playing old hits on ‘package tours’, The Wolfmen prove that Marco and Chris are continually looking forwards…
The Wolfmen is a welcome and long-overdue return for some of the most creative characters from punk and new wave era. Marco Pironni first appeared on stage alongside Sid Vicious in Siouxsie and The Banshees and with Adam and The Ants co-wrote five number one singles and two number one albums. In the 90s he joined Sinead O’Connor as co-writer and guitarist scoring a number one album with I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got.
Chris joined Adam Ant’s band in 1982, adding bass and backing vocals for a string of top ten hits and a performance at Live Aid. He went on to work with writers and producers ranging from Junior Vasquez to Guy Chambers and in the 90s formed Jackie Onassid and toured with Iggy Pop. But Marco and Chris’ heritage is not for stagnation or study. It lives and breathes. This year alone has seen Mute Records’ electro-goddesses Client cover Zerox, while Kings of the Wild Frontier and Ant Music appear in the forthcoming Kirsten Dunst/Sophia Coppola film Marie-Antoinette.
Demos from the Jackie Says EP have been circulating online and won fans from Steve Jones (Sex Pistols) to Mark Moore (S’Express) with one MySpacer calling them “genuinely exciting… raw and hungry sounding… makes me remember why I loved The Ants back when… Marco’s pulled Excalibur from its moorings for the second time in his life…”
