Siouxsie & the Banshees, Adam & the Ants: Vortex, London

Jane Suck, Record Mirror, 5 November 1977

"WE ARE not human..." Support band The Ants are bizarre. More at home on Mars than the bondage mag they look like they just fell out of. When Jordan bestrode the stage and opened her lungs it was genuinely horrific. But you get what you deserve and I can't think of a more appropriate assault on rock and roll at this point in time than full-frontal heart attack. Disturbers till we scream, Ants!
