Bow Wow Wow was a 1980s New Wave band organized by Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren in 1980 whose music is described as having an "African-derived drum sound".[1] McLaren persuaded guitarist Matthew Ashman, bassist Leigh Gorman and percussionist David Barbarossa of the original lineup of Adam & the Ants to leave Adam Ant and form a new group, fronted by teen singer Annabella Lwin. [1] Among the regular faces at the band's early London gigs were Latin songwriter/producer Richard Daniel Roman and Boy George, then known as Lieutenant Lush. McLaren was also going to use the latter (later of Culture Club fame) as a second lead singer, but he was deemed to be "too wild" for the band [citation needed].

McLaren discovered fourteen year old Lwin while she was working at her parents' laundrette, and the group's sound was a mix of her "girlish squeal", Balinese chants, surf instrumentals, New Romantic pop melodies, and Barbarossa's Burundi ritual music influenced tom tom drum beats. The band's most popular hit was the New Wave staple, "I Want Candy" (originally a 1965 hit by The Strangeloves). "I Want Candy" was featured in an early music video on MTV and also in the 2005 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Their most notorious recording was "Sexy Eiffel Tower", a bold ode to masturbation, including excitedly heavy breathing and orgasmic moans; this was a song that went far beyond the slightly later Cyndi Lauper hit "She Bop", about similar subject matter. [2] The group released three full-length albums before Lwin quit to pursue a solo career,[3] or was kicked out,[2] in 1983. This is the current Indonesian Collaboration of the week. ...

Controversy

Their label at the time, EMI, refused to promote the cassingle "C30, C60, C90, Go" because it allegedly promoted home taping,[2] as Side B was blank. EMI dropped the group after releasing its second single "W.O.R.K." [2] A cassingle is a single released on a prerecorded cassette, or musicassette (MC). ...


Lwin's mother alleged exploitation of a minor for immoral purposes and instigated a Scotland Yard investigation. As a result the band was only allowed to leave England after McLaren promised not to promote Lwin as a "sex kitten". This included an agreement to not use a nude photograph depicting Lwin as the woman in Manet's The Luncheon on the Grass (Le déjeuner sur l'herbe), though the picture was used as the cover of an EP in 1982. [2] (The photo was originally to be used for 1981's See Jungle!..., and the cover was used as planned in some European countries - such as Holland - though not in the UK or the US.) Lwin was almost made to quit the band by her family over the publication of the photo, particularly as she was only fifteen when the photo was taken. New Scotland Yard, London New Scotland Yard, it blowwsssss often referred to simply as Scotland Yard or The Yard, is the headquarters of the Metropolitan Police Service, responsible for policing Greater London (although not the City of London itself). ...

Metroactive Music | Bow Wow Wow (1257 words)
Bow Wow Wow toured America twice--with a tutor in attendance for Lwin--but broke up in 1983 at the start of its second U.S. tour, when Ashman, by then a junkie, fell off the stage and broke his arm.
In short, Bow Wow Wow is indicative of some of the good things about growing older: gaining perspective, learning to enjoy the present and playing for pleasure rather than profit.
Perhaps, after all these years, the Marxist sentiments have at last sunk in, or maybe Bow Wow Wow is just one more example in a long line of rock bands whose addiction to their craft is too great for even the most hardened 12-step program to fix.

The violin bow received its definitive form during the period from 1775 to 1781 at the hands of François Tourte (1747–1835).
He made the bow of brazilwood (Pernambuco wood), gave it a slightly concave curvature, and invented the device by which the horsehairs are held in place and tightened.
