Adam Ant Interview

Happy New Year!. I took a brisk walk up to the World’s End shop Monday afternoon to have my meeting with Adam. We had been meaning to do it for the last 6 months but the timing obviously had not been right until now. I wanted to ask him about his association with Vivienne & the shop as he has been a customer for 40 years. We ordered two cups of tea & sat across the road from the shop at the Chinese bakery. It had just been raining so I was a bit worried about the background wet hiss from the traffic but as it goes I can hear him quite clearly on the playback.

So….16 minutes long, let it roll

  1. Thanks so much, Ben, for posting the interview with Adam Ant. I also have the Tudor Rose silver ring, which I bought about 14 years ago at the Westwood NYC shop which is now closed. I wear the ring all the time as it is one of my favorites!
    After this interview I am now in the mood to get out my vinyl copy of Dirk Wears White Sox and have a listen!

    Best Regards,

  2. Thank you very much, Ben, for the great interview.
    Wouldn’t it be great to have other Westwood regulars like Pete Burns interviewed?

    Warmest regards,

  3. I love Adam, a hero of mine since I was a kid (suspended from primary school for wearing the white stripe) I will be making the journey to London for the Dirk show and will of course be wearing Worlds End bondage trousers.

  4. YEAH !!! interview Pete Burns ! that would be amazing ! ! He is obsessed with Vivienne Westwood !!

  5. Thanks Ben. I agree, Westwood regulars such as Pete Burns, Boy George or even Helena Bonham-Carter interviewed next please.

    Any chance of a Worlds End shop online again? X

  6. Love Adam Ant :) Such a nice interview. Just two friends chatting…
    Would be amazing to see more “old faces” speaking like that. Great.
