For all the success that Adam Ant eventually had it's sometimes forgotten that before that success, his band and himself, Adam and the antz, released a new wave/punk classic in, Dirk wears white sox. It's a dark and brooding masterpiece. Car trouble, is excellent, one of Ant's greatest songs. Elsewhere there's, digital tenderness, nine plan failed, and, Catholic day, all brilliant. The influence of this album would be felt later on down the line, especially with Blur, who some of the songs here sound uncannily like. Dirk wears white sox, is an underrated record, it needs some rediscovery.

This album is still a fun listen. It sounds bit dated now but I can't help myself.

Of the three Ants albums this is the one I still listen to, Family Of Noise being the best track.
