Interestingly, while Adam and the Ants never charted in the U.S top 100, they had 7 top 10 hits in their native U.K., including two #1s (and yes, "Stand and Deliver" is one of them; "Prince Charming" was the other). "Stand and Deliver" was the lead single from the third (and final) Adam and the Ants album, Prince Charming, which was released in 1981.
The following year Adam broke up the band, although he continued to work with guitarist Marco Pirroni, and began recording under the name Adam Ant. [As an aside, this has led to some confusion over whether a song is Adam Ant and or Adam and the Ants, not that it makes a ton of difference.] Ant continued to have success in the U.K., and even had some U.S. chart successes, helped by MTV. However, Ant decided to focus on acting after his 1985 album, Vive Le Rock and he effectively left the music industry for the rest of the 1980s. Subsequently, he continues to sporadically record music (and tour). Amazingly, I believe that his more recent efforts (albums in 1990, 1995 and perhaps 2012) are surprisingly good, and worth a listen.
So without further ado, here is the dandy highwayman himself.
More coolness: a brief making of video for "Stand and Deliver." Note that I have added a Making of label to the right, for those who are interested.
