Friend or Foe (album)

Friend Or Foe (album)

Friend or Foe was the first solo album by Adam Ant, released after Adam and the Ants disbanded in early 1982. Friend or Foe also became Adam Ant's most successful solo album giving him the hit song "Goody Two Shoes" which peaked at #1 on the UK charts, and at #12 in the USA; along with the innovative video, this made him a crossover (over the Atlantic) star. The traditional Ant sound was augmented by newer, more rockabilly-influenced guitar as well as new beats, such as the Bo Diddley beat on the fan favourite "Place in the Country". Other hits produced from the record were "Desperate But Not Serious" (UK #33) and "Friend or Foe" (UK #9). A remastered version was released in 2005, featuring 12 additional tracks.

Famous quotes containing the words friend and/or foe:

    A wise parent humours the desire for independent action, so as to become the friend and advisor when his absolute rule shall cease.
    Elizabeth Gaskell (1810–1865)

    Let’s not quibble! I’m the foe of moderation, the champion of excess. If I may lift a line from a die-hard whose identity is lost in the shuffle, “I’d rather be strongly wrong than weakly right.”
    Tallulah Bankhead (1903–1968)
