what happened next
Adam and the Ants went absolutely huge after this with massive hits over the following couple of years. Kevin Mooney was dumped after his 'performance' in a Royal Variety show left much to be desired. The Ants eventually imploded with Ant becoming a solo artiste but with lesser success. His problems in the mid 2000s are well documented. Merrick was Chris Hughes in disguise who went on to become a distinguished producer - Tears For Fears, Howard Jones etc.

Adam is now performing again wit a new band also featuring two drummers
