Speaking with NME February 23, 2013, Adam Ant said that a lot of his lyrics, "just come out of the blue sometimes." He added: "Like for 'Ants Invasion,' I'd seen this Science Fiction film about a monster that was a big omelette. So that was originally called 'The Omelette From Outer Space.'"
Chicken Joe from Cairns, AustraliaI studied entomology with Adam at Cambridge. He was an outstanding student. He appeared obsessed with the venom from a common ant. I guess that's why he was always hooked on 'tread on an Ant.' But when I said we need some of the older grooves he said 'no way... Mor teen'!!!
