Bow Wow Wow have some great tunes, but my favorites are all on the IMPORT The Best of Bow Wow Wow, not this domestic version. The import has the original versions, which I prefer. The tracks on the domestic CD are overproduced and play like "extended disco versions".

Bow Wow Wow have always been just a band that only a few people have heard of , let alone listened to, but they have always deserved a lot more than this. The musicianship on all their songs is top notch especially the bass playing and the drumming.I honestly would say that Leroy Gorman (the bassist ), is the best, fastest amd most interesting bass player that I have ever heard. All in all, it is a great album by one of the real anomalies of pop music. Buy and be pleasantly delighted.

...I must say it's nice to come back to after hearing the dreck that's out nowadays. The drums & bass on this CD are far above what you hear these days. The bass player is very funky in a non-overkill-slapping way (e.g. Flea). He's sort of a cross between Rocco Prestia (Tower of Power) with a little bit of Mark King (another Brit, from Level 42) thrown in. Very rhythmic stuff and more power to them in pulling it off in a post-punk/new-wave pop era & style. One thing the CD lacks is the naughty song "Sexy Eiffel Tower" which is sort of the 80's version of a Donna Summer album (a lot of heavy breathing). But overall this is an excellent CD for the money for an underrated and hard-to-find band.

Like much of early eighties new wave, Bow Wow Wow has been largely dismissed by mainstream rock critics as being too shallow and gimmicky. Now, 15 years after their heyday, maybe people will forget about the haircuts and look at all the great songs these guys wrote. With the big, hollow-body punk/rockabilly guitars over exotic, tribal rhythms, Bow Wow Wow had an intoxicating, unique sound, and Anabella's voice was really strong on her best stuff. With the nineties full of depressing,negative, one-dimensional junk like Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson, Bow Wow Wow is a welcome reminder that rock music can be creative, rebellious and edgy, but still FUN! Do You Want To Hold Me is simply one of the most perfect singles ever recorded--edgy, exotic, sensual, warm and incredibly catchy. All in all, a great summertime CD.

Bow Wow Wow is not a Household Name, They Charted Once in the USA with "I want Candy" (Top 50), and released only 3 Proper Albums...Their Sound is Tribal, the Lead Singer Annabella often Yelps to Percussive Drumming and throbbing Bass, The Mixture yields Many Great Tunes, but it can take getting used to, as it did for Me, I was not a Fan untill much listening...If You don't know a lot of the Group's Songs, I suggest listening to as many 30 second Samples as possible to get a feeling of whether this stuff is digestible...Most of the Songs here are first-rate, I particularly Love "TV Savage", "Golly Golly Go Buddy!" and "Louis Qatorze", along with Annabella's Solo Turn "Fever"....If You want to explore further, I suggest the CD "Girl Bites Dog: Your Compact Disc Pet" to round out Your Collection, it includes more Gems, such as "Sexy Effiel Tower" (Where 14 Year-Old Annabella Pants Orgasmically...and more authentically than Donna Summer)and "Radio G String", as well as 3 Cuts from this CD in different versions; But begin here, and don't go further unless You Adore this CD....

...and not a "rip off" thereof. Adam "Ant" left the band...the band (Adam and the Ants) and their manager found a new singer, and a new direction, in Myant Myant Aye...er, Anabella Lwin.

Just wanted to clear that "rip off/stolen" thing up...and add that I listen to this record often...C30,C60,C90 Go!...relevant for our times, even tho a lot of people don't know what a C30/60/90 even is anymore :)

This record conjures up fond memories and at the same time is proof-positive that Bow Wow Wow was way before its time. I just love "Where's My Snake" and "Chihuahua" which were hard to find in the 80's (at least for me), and it is nice to have a compilation like this that presents the true essence of this original, fun band. Great, great fun!!

Being a loyal lover of Annabella Lwin and Bow wow wow, I can attest that this album is a must have! Anyone who has only heard MTV's "I want candy" should play this album and really learn what a great band these guys were! At least half the songs here are great and will get your primal juices flowing! My favorite is "Where's my snake."
