In Adam’s new persona, ‘The Blueblack Hussar’, he embarks on his first tour for 15 years with his new backing band, ‘The Good, the Mad and the Lovely Posse’. For the first time since his Punk roots, Adam is captured in this film playing with a young, hungry band, collaborating with Boz Boorer (Morrissey, The Pole Cats, etc). The film includes electrifying live performances, starting at London’s 100 Club and culminating at Hyde Park, before an audience of 55,000. Jack Bond’s ‘fly on the wall’ direction includes intimate scenes of Adam at home, back stage and even getting a new tattoo.
Revealing Adam’s multi-layered personality through the characters he connects with on his journey, Adam meets up with journalist, John Robb, the Amy Winehouse producer, Mark Ronson and reunites with legendary Pop Artist Allen Jones (A Clockwork Orange), his art student days mentor. Then, after an explosive show at the 100 Club, he escapes London to go to Paris to record with his ‘Bardoesque’ backing singer, Twinkle and the enigmatic film star, Charlotte Rampling, who inspired his first album, ‘Dirk Wears White Sox’. Jack Bond, one of Britain’s most innovative directors, returns to the Cinema Verité roots of his groundbreaking 1965 film, ‘Dali in New York’ to portray the creative talent of another unique artist, Adam Ant.
