“A long, long time ago, the greatest living pop star, Adam Ant, met his lifelong collaborator Marco Pirroni. And together they made some of the finest, most extraordinary and original pop records known to man. In 1982, Adam disbanded his Ants and employed a new band to assist him in solo success. One such fellow was Chris Constantinou, who looked a bit like Robert De Niro and played a mean bass guitar. In 2006, Marco and Chris formed a rock 'n' roll band called The Wolfmen…” - Channel 4

"BBC’s ‘Collective’ music website"

“The music jumps out and gives it that good old fashioned r-n-r swagger, no lo-fi production, no haircuts. Weirdly, the opening ‘Jackie Says’ has a lot of similarity to Black Rebel Motorcyle Club’s more fun moments, with its twang-esque riffs, snarled lips, glam infused attitude… Glorious in so many ways. Amazingly, the rest of the EP matches this opening gambit, and even manages to drop a damn fine cover version of an old Roxy Music track.” - BBC’s ‘Collective’ music website

“Is (Marco & Chris') music as necessary in 2006 as it was nearly 30 years ago? In a word, yes. In more words, too f***ing right it is.” - BBC’s ‘Collective’ music website


“The picture that I conjure up in my head when I listen to The Wolfmen is a kind of teddy boy image – not the carton teddy boy like Showaddywaddy or something, but something dangerous and a bit sinister. Violence in dark alleyways, that sort of thing… It’s a melting pot of Roxy Music, David Bowie, maybe some T-Rex and things from that glam era… It does sound fresh, exactly because it sounds old, it’s that whole thing where musical styles loop back around…” -


“The Wolfmen sound like a mix of the Ant's pop only mixed with the glam and sleaze of New York Dolls, the swagger of Bolan & the song writing force of Bowie. The production is spot on, and there is a real sense of 'now' about what The Wolfmen are doing... Some of the smartest, most concise pieces of pop you are going to hear this year. Fact.” -


“…Marco and Chris do growing old disgracefully moves with style. With thumping Suicide-alike beatbox and glam-rockabilly guitars, the A-side is exuberant filth…” - Mojo

"Big Cheese"

“…danced up Panic! At The Disco meets The Ants action… thrash punk for the 21st century…” - Big Cheese


Marco Pirroni is a legend in his own time. Now some of you may be saying "But I don't know who the fuck Marco Pirroni is?" Well you may not know his name but you've heard his music. Pirroni was major part of the punk scene in the late 70's in his native England. He first played with Siouxsie and the Banshees in 1976 along with Sid Vicious and later he joined Adam & the Ants penning five number one singles. Since then Pirroni has worked with dozens of other musicians but he is forever looking forward and never backward. His latest band is The Wolfmen where he has teamed up with another ex-Ant Chris Constantinou. -

The Wolfmen formed in 2004 and centres around Marco Pirroni (guitars, co-writer) and Chris Constantinou (bass, lead vocals, co-writer). Both have quite a history. Chris worked extensively with Chas Chandler in the late 70s rock band Drill before joining Adam and the Ants in 1982. There he met Marco Pirroni, lynchpin of the UK punk scene from Siouxsie And The Banshees, The Models and Rema-Rema.

Marco had taken Adam and The Ants to worldwide acclaim, co-writing five number one singles and a further four top tens. When the Ants disbanded in 1982, Marco remained as Adam’s co-writer and musical director, starting off with a number one single (Goody Two Shoes) and album (Friend or Foe), followed by nine more top 20 hits. The former gave Marco his third Ivor Novello award.

Chris and Marco went their separate ways in the mid-90s, with Chris forming the Miles Copeland-managed SF Go with Danny Kustow (TRB, Glen Matlock), followed by a co-writing project with Bow Wow Wow’s Annabella Lwin, which spawned the hit single Do What You Do (Sony, 1994). He then took centre stage with post-punk outfit Jackie Onassid, releasing two albums, soundtracking award-winning British filmmaker Paul Hills’ 2003 movie The Poet and touring extensively , supporting Iggy Pop.

By the time they came back together to form The Wolfmen, Marco had added co-writing and performing credits with Sinead O’Connor to his CV, as well as releasing the acclaimed SEX: Too Fast To Live Too Young To Die and Biba: Champagne and Novocaine albums on his own label, Only Lover Left Alive.

The Wolfmen sees song writing duties being shared between Chris and Marco. Chris Hughes - whose credits range from Robert Plant to Paul McCartney – has also produced several tracks. The band’s debut – the Jackie Says EP - was released on Damaged Goods on August 14 2006 on 10” vinyl and download only. It followed cinema screenings for Amore Pedestre and The Gay Shoe Clerk, two 100-year-old, hitherto silent films which The Wolfmen soundtracked as special commissions from London’s Fashion In Film Festival.

With a debut album nearing completion, The Wolfmen can also be heard leaking out of a TV near you: on major ad campaigns (including Heineken USA) and documentaries including NBC Universal/Bravo’s I Predict A Riot, a ten part series examining 30 years of UK riots from Brixton 1981 to Ikea 2005.
