single album

June formed the basis of Ant's second solo album Strip (Strip (Adam Ant album)). The album was recorded at Polar Studios in Stockholm in the late summer of 1983 with Phil Collins as both drummer and producer on both the title track and planned single Puss 'N Boots, with Richard James Burgess adopting the same roles for the non-single album tracks . The single "Puss 'N Boots" reached #5 on the UK charts, but the BBC banned both the video and the song for the follow-up single "Strip." Despite a vocal cameo performance from former ABBA member Anni-Frid Lyngstad, "Strip" only managed to peak at #41 before being withdrawn by CBS while the parent album barely scraped the UK Top 20. However, the Strip single fared quite well in America, only narrowly missing out on a US Top 40 hit single. To promote the album, which reached #65 on the ''Billboard'' Top 200 albums, in early 1984 Ant undertook another extensive US tour, some sixty dates in length, starting on 27 January 1984 at the Atlanta Civic Centre in Atlanta (Atlanta, Georgia) in Georgia (Georgia (U.S. state)) and lasting until 27 April 1984 at the Irvine Meadow Amphitheatre in Laguna Hills, California. http: www.adam-ant.net 1984.html Although UK television performances of Puss N'Boots and Strip had featured a quartet of Ant, Pirroni, Wiczling and Constantinou, the US tour featured the same seven-piece backing band as the previous album's tour, except for Steve King in place of Stewart Van Blandamer on saxophone. Strip Tour "Adam Ant Tour '84" Official Programme, Taurus Music (Overseas) Ltd, 1984 pp.3 & 23 The tour shows were also notable for featuring a recreation by Ant of the Chinese Water Torture Cell escapology stunt originally performed by Harry Houdini. In preparation for this Ant would, in keeping with the album title, undress onstage down to a pair of boxer shorts. 'Stand And Deliver', Adam Ant, Hodder & Stoughton 2006, p.230 With the collapse of the monarchy, many social democrats viewed previous tactical differences between the Mensheviks and the Bolsheviks as a thing of the past and a number of local party organizations were merged. When Bolshevik leaders Lev Kamenev, Joseph Stalin and Matvei Muranov returned to Petrograd from Siberian exile in early March 1917 and assumed the leadership of the Bolshevik party, they began exploring the idea of a complete re-unification of Bolsheviks and Mensheviks at the national level, which Menshevik leaders were willing to consider. However, Lenin and his deputy Grigory Zinoviev returned to Russia from their Swiss exile on April 3, 1917 and re-asserted control of the Bolshevik party by late April 1917, taking it in a more radical, anti-war direction. They called for an immediate revolution and the transfer of all power to the Soviets (Soviet (council)), which made any re-unification impossible. thumb right Leaders of the Menshevik Party at Norra Bantorget (Image:Mensevikii.jpg) in Stockholm, Sweden, May 1917. Pavel Axelrod, Julius Martov and Alexander Martinov In March–April 1917 the Menshevik leadership conditionally supported the newly formed liberal Russian Provisional Government. After the collapse of the first Provisional Government on May 2, 1917 over the issue of annexations, Tsereteli convinced the Mensheviks to strengthen the government for the sake of "saving the revolution" and enter a socialist-liberal coalition with Socialist Revolutionaries and liberal Constitutional Democrats, which they did on May 4, 1917 (Old Style). With Martov's return from European exile in early May, the left wing of the party challenged the party's majority led by Tsereteli at the first post-revolutionary party conference on May 9, but the Right wing prevailed 44–11. From that point on, the Mensheviks had at least one representative in the Provisional Government until it was overthrown by the Bolsheviks during the October Revolution of 1917. death_date Commons:Category:Stockholm Wikipedia:Stockholm Dmoz:Europe Sweden Stockholm County Localities Stockholm

The city is spread across 14 islands on the coast in the southeast of Sweden at the mouth of Lake Mälaren (Mälaren), by the Stockholm archipelago and the Baltic sea. The area has been settled since the Stone Age, in the 6th millennium BC, and was founded as a city in 1252 by Birger Jarl.

Stockholm is the cultural, media, political, and economic centre of Sweden. The region alone accounts for over a third of the country's GDP, Sweden's national football arena (Friends Arena) is located north of the city centre, in Solna. Ericsson Globe, the national indoor arena, is in the southern part of the city.
