In 1980s London, Bandit Matthews was a rebellious youngster with strong opinions and a passion for Ant Music. Twenty years later, nothing much had changed. This story is told with the kind permission of all those concerned - or their spokespersons - and any similarity to any other persons is pure coincidence. For many young people, life in 1980s Britain was tough. Against a grim backdrop of social unrest, Adam Ant served as a vibrant figurehead for the disgruntled youth, their parents, and their younger siblings. Set in the days when 'PC' stood for only one thing -Prince Charming - "ANT MUSINGS" is a witty and moving account which follows a group of committed Adam Ant fans through two decades of their lives, loves, laughter and laments. This true story will appeal not only to fans of Adam Ant, but any 1980s music fan - and everyone who remembers being a teenager. In keeping with the true-life nature of this book, "ANT MUSINGS" contains a degree of strong language and some sexual references. It is therefore intended for adult readers.

About the Author:

Keats Babel was born during a February blizzard in London, England, and has been 21 years of age for more than a decade. She now lives outside London, but returns occasionally to walk in the parks, visit historical sites or attend the theatre etc., etc., etc. The writer of 18th century humorous novels "Nine Lives and Kat" and "Cap'n Sneck", in "ANT MUSINGS" Keats steps forward two-and-a-half centuries to write from personal experience and shared memories. A committed vegetarian who genuinely loathes the taste of fruit and vegetables, Keats draws inspiration from natural settings and ancient buildings. Claiming "Too many interests, too little time," she cites her major passions as history, animals - including her regular visitor, a semi-tame badger named Vorteksion - music, and Battle Abbey. She has an abhorrence for laziness, bigotry, cowardice, and oranges. Keats is currently to be found with her imagination firmly back in the 1700s, with the completion of further novels set in those exciting times "imminent". She hopes you will enjoy reading "ANT MUSINGS" as much as she enjoyed both living it and writing it.

Review:

"A beautiful guide to our lost youth and a stunning return to the times we shall never see again." Bryan Stanton, Adam Ant Fanclub Manager & P.A. "This brilliant book re-lives Antfandom in the 1980s, whilst capturing the essence of Adam's popularity today. A 'must' for anyone who has been influenced by Ant Music and Ant Culture." Nancy Kelly, Webmistress, adam-ant.net "This is exactly how it was: It's who we were, it's what we did. I defy anyone with a soul to read it without veering from laughing aloud to finding tears in their eyes. Marvellous." The real-life "Tony Ravelle" "If you've ever wondered what being a young person in 1980s London was like, read on.
