iPod and the Ants

Just one week to go before my shiny new iPod Touch 16gb player is delivered. I can’t lie – I’m excited! It’s been months since the battery on my Archos died. Months without being able to watch my favourite TV shows on the metro or buses. Months without listening to my Podcast subscriptions. And needless to say, I have been preparing for the arrival of my iPod. I’ve downloaded iTunes, the software I need to run my iPod, and I have to say it’s an impressive bit of kit. The coverflow feature is very cool. You just scroll through album artwork to choose your music. The podcast section is superb too. I’ve also worked out that I can access the US iTunes store from Mexico with the helping hand of a nifty bit of software.

I’ve also been sorting my music collection out. I’ve transferred it all from my Archos, got the album artwork off of Amazon, deleted a few crap albums and added a few new ones. Whilst looking for some new (or old albums I should say, but one I don’t have!) I found a Best of Adam and the Ants compilation. Jeez, what happened to them? They were my favourite band when I was a kid. I would have been 8 or 9 I guess. They were part of the New Wave along with bands such as The Cure, A Flock of Seagulls, Depeche Mode, Eurythmics, Human League, Naked Eyes and Culture Club. They were big! If only briefly. And is there a better example of the exhibitionism, colour, wild hair-dos, tarty costumes and sheer glamour of the 80’s?! Did you miss them? Enjoy Prince Charming (or not!) which also featured the late Diana Dors…
