Songfacts®:

  • 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'!!!
