Adicts, The

adicts_201The Adicts were a British punk quartet founded in Ipswich, Suffolk, in the late '70s by lead singer Monkey (Keith Warren), guitarist Pete Davison, bassist Mel Ellis, and drummer Kid Dee (Michael Davison).

The group affected the look of the 'droogs' in the film A Clockwork Orange (1971).

Largely independent recordmakers, they nevertheless made the British charts with their second album, Sound of Music, in 1982, and the single Bad Boy in 1983.

In the 1980s, the band temporarily changed their name to 'Fun Adicts' and 'ADX', to facilitate children's TV appearances.
