Bow Wow Wow

Bow Wow Wow was a New Wave band organized by Malcolm McLaren, who is better known as the man behind the Sex Pistols. McLaren used the former members of Adam & the Ants after Adam Ant's solo career began. Matthew Ashman, Leigh Gorman and David Barbarossa, along with Annabella Lwin on vocals, formed the band and began playing before Lwin quit in 1983 to pursue a solo career and the remaining trio became the Chiefs of Relief. After issuing a few albums, Ashman died from diabetes complications and Lwin and Gorman reunited to release Wild in the U.S.A. in 1998, adding Dave Calhoun and Eshan Khadaroo.

May 1983 I Want Candy (RCA RCXK 004, cassette EP). It was composed partly of re-recorded material and partly new, and failed to make an impact. Feb 1983 Do You Wanna Hold Me? b/w What's the Time (RCA 314, 45rpm single). In 1995 a comeback album entitled Rainbow Nation was released. Feb 1983 When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going (RCA RCALP 6068, 33rpm LP). A very catchy single called Hit That Perfect Beat managed, amazingly, to equal the two previous biggest hits by making Number 3 in the UK charts, but one solitary Top 20 hit followed, plus the listless album Truthdare Doubledare, before the band's demise. Sep 1982 Fools Rush In b/w Sex (instrumental) (EMI 5344, 45rpm single). Bronski Beat recruited John Foster as Somerville's replacement, a singer of less stage presence, charisma and a deeper and more unprovocative voice.

Jul 1982 Louis Quatorze b/w Mile High Club (RCA 263, 45rpm single). He teamed up with Coles to form the Communards and in 1986 outsold all other singles in the UK with their version of Don't Leave Me This Way. Jul 1982 I Want Candy (EMI EMC 3416, 33rpm LP). Presumably this related to internal politics rather than the lyrical direction of the band, as his new project relied almost entirely on unpolitical songs and cover versions - and they were a huge success in doing so. May 1982 I Want Candy b/w King Kong (RCA 238, 45rpm single). Shortly afterwards, Somerville quit the band, stating he wanted a career which was "more political". Apr 1982 See Jungle! (Jungle Boy) / (I'm a ) TV Savage (RCA 220, 45rpm single, double A-side). It reached Number 3 in the UK charts, equalling the feats of Smalltown Boy, and was memorably described by one critic as "the gayest record ever made".

Jan 1982 Go Wild in the Country b/w El Boss Dieho (RCA 175, 45rpm single). The full version was actually a medley, also incorporating snippets of Love To Love You baby and Johnny Remember Me. Oct 1981 Chihuahua b/w Golly! Golly! Go Buddy! (RCA 144, 45rpm single). In 1985, the trio joined up with Marc Almond to record a version of the Donna Summer classic I Feel Love. City All Over! Go Ape Crazy. (RCA RCALP 3000, 33rpm LP). Playing the clarinet solos in the song was Richard Coles, with whom Somerville would later team up to form the Communards. Oct 1981 See Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang, Yeah. It Ain't Necessarily So, a song which questioned the authenticity of Biblical tales, reached the UK Top 20.

Jul 1981 Prince of Darkness b/w Orang-outang (RCA 100, 45rpm single). A third single was released from it, again causing controversy. Nah, No No My Daddy Don't) b/w C30, C60, C90, Anda (EMI 5153, 45rpm single). At the time, the age of consent for gay men in the UK was 21. (N.O. The sleeve inside listed the varying ages of consent for homosexual sex in different nations around the world. Mar 1981 W.O.R.K. At the end of 1984, the trio released an album which was provocatively titled The Age Of Consent.

Dec 1980 Your Cassette Pet (EMI WOW 1, cassette EP). Again, it made the Top 10 in the UK. Jul 1980 C30, C60, C90, Go! b/w Sun, Sea and Piracy (EMI 5088, 45rpm single). The song quickly established the trio as an outlet for gay issues - all three members were gay - and the follow-up single Why? pursued the same energetic and electronic formula musically, while the lyrics centred more centrally and darkly on anti-gay prejudice. After issuing a few albums, Ashman died from diabetes complications and Lwin and Gorman reunited to release Wild in the U.S.A. in 1998, adding Dave Calhoun and Eshan Khadaroo. Called Smalltown Boy, it peaked at Number 3 in the UK and was accompanied by a memorable video of Somerville leaving home, forlornly eating a plum on a train, being attacked by a homophobic gang and being returned to his family by the police. Matthew Ashman, Leigh Gorman and David Barbarossa, along with Annabella Lwin on vocals, formed the band and began playing before Lwin quit in 1983 to pursue a solo career and the remaining trio became the Chiefs of Relief. Formed in 1983, their debut hit came the following year - the striking tale of a boy who was cast away by his family and neighbours for being gay.

McLaren used the former members of Adam & the Ants after Adam Ant's solo career began. At their height, the band comprised of distinctive and diminutive singer Jimmy Somerville, backed by Steve Bronski and Larry Steinbacheck, both of whom played keyboards and percussion. Bow Wow Wow was a New Wave band organized by Malcolm McLaren, who is better known as the man behind the Sex Pistols. Bronski Beat were a popular British synth pop trio of the early 1980s. Chihuahua.
