“Kings Of The Wild Frontier” is a New Wave album by Adam and the Ants, released in 1980.
This album introduced the new Burundi Beat drum sound.
After having his previous backing band wooed away by producer Malcolm McLaren, who used them to form Bow Wow Wow, Adam Ant recorded “Kings of the Wild Frontier” with guitarist Marco Pirroni as his new writing partner.
In spite of the difficulties with the recording, “Kings of the Wild Frontier” has become acknowledged as an inspiritational and unique-sounding album, introducing two drummers, with Duane Eddy-esque guitar riffs.
