Their moment in the sun consisted of two 1982 hits, "Do You Wanna Hold Me" and a cover of "I Want Candy" by the Strangeloves. ~ Dan Heilman Bow Wow Wow was a quartet organized by UK manager Malcolm McLaren (best known as the mastermind behind the Sex Pistols) at the start of the 80s. McLaren matched the trio of musicians who had constituted Adam Ant's Ants (Matthew Ashman, b 1962, guitar; Leigh Gorman, b 1961, bass; and David Barbarossa, b 1961, drums) with teenage singer Annabella Lwin (b Oct 31, 1965), retaining the earlier group's African-derived drum sound. In 1983 Lwin quit the group for a solo career, and the remaining three changed their name to the Chiefs of Relief. Both Lwin and the Chiefs issued their own albums. ~ William Ruhlmann, ---------- Related Artists ----------- Adam & the Ants McLaren, Malcolm Annabella Yip Yip Coyote ---------- Roots & Influences ---------- Sixties Garage Rock Seventies Punk Strangeloves Birthdate & Place : UK AMG Artist ID # : P000003752 Chronological Album List |Date| Label | Number |R S T|Rating --------------------------------+----+----------+--------+-----+------ Girl Bites Dog |1993|EMI Record|72438272| S T| Best Of |1989|Receiver |116 | | When the Going Gets Tough The T|1983|Great Expe| |R S T| OK Bow Wow Wow |1983|RCA |004 | S T| Last of the Mohicans, The |1982|RCA |4314 | | Good I Want Candy |1982|RCA |54375 |R S T|+BestA Bow Wow Wow Radio Special Volum|1982|RCA |4193 | | OK See Jungle!
