From the venue:

The Adicts can be singled out from the host of other UK punk hopefuls of the early 80s largely due to their image. The adoption of black bowler hats and face make-up showed more than a passing resemblance to the unruly characters in Stanley Kubrick’s controversial film A Clockwork Orange, and reflected the Adicts’ brand of boot-boy, new wave music. The band was originally based in Ipswich, Suffolk, England, and comprised lead singer Monkey (Keith Warren), who had grotesquely perfected Malcolm McDowell’s Alex grin, plus Kid Dee (b. Michael Davison; drums), Pete Davidson (guitar) and Mel Ellis (bass).
