Bow Wow Wow - I Want Candy Vinyl Album

Bow Wow Wow are an English 1980s new wave band, created by Malcolm McLaren to promote his and business partner Vivienne Westwood's New Romantic fashion lines.[1] The group's music is described as having an "African-derived drum sound". McLaren persuaded guitarist Matthew Ashman, bassist Leigh Gorman and drummer David Barbarossa (also known as Dave Barbe), of the then line-up of Adam and the Ants to leave the founder of the band Adam Ant and form a new group. After a six-month-long audition process for a lead singer, the band enlisted Annabella Lwin. Musician David Fishel, originally from Liverpool, an acquaintance of McLaren's, discovered 13-year-old Lwin while she was working a Saturday job at her local dry cleaners. The group's sound was a mix of her "girlish squeal," chants, surf instrumentals, pop melodies, and Barbarossa's Burundi ritual music influenced tom-tom drum beats.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 Boy George (later of Culture Club fame) as a second lead singer, but he was deemed to be "too wild" for the band. In 1981, having split with their record label EMI after a dispute, Bow Wow Wow signed to new A&R head Bill Kimber at RCA Records where they had their first U.K. top 10 hit with "Go Wild in the Country" in early 1982. The band's most popular U.S. hit was the new wave staple, "I Want Candy" (originally a 1965 hit by The Strangeloves) which was featured in an early music video on MTV. Bow Wow Wow's recording of "I Want Candy" also appeared in film soundtracks and media and advertising events such as the 2005 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

Both the album cover and the vinyl album are in great condition. The inner sleeve is the original sleeve that came with the album and has complete lyrics for "Go Wild In The Country" and more pictures of the group.
