In the first of our Rewind series, we re-visit Rachael Howlett’s terrific story about suburbia and buying the 7-inch single of Antmusic by Adam And The Ants.

I just knew it was time to break out some of my pocket money to buy this tune and rattled my blue State Bank of Victoria moneybox until I got some coins. Dad loaded us into the family car, squeezing three kids into the back of a boxy red Sigma for the trip to the shopping centre. Mum wound down the window letting her cigarette smoke escape while my little brother kept pointing out all the trucks on the road.
