Bow Wow Wow were formed by Malcolm McLaren in 1980 after he persuaded the rhythm section of Adam & the Ants to form a
new group, fronted by Anabella Lwin. Taking David Barbarossa's Burundi-influenced drumbeats as their trademark, they went on
to have a relatively short career (1980-1983) of creating tribal-influenced new wave/pop, and in the process releasing their
now-famous (with a little help from MTV) cover of The Strangeloves' single, "I Want Candy". Bow Wow Wow originally split in
1983, but are known to have sporadic reunion shows.
