Fuckin' A wonders.

Is that good or bad?

I think Malcolm McLaren is still asking himself that question.

Richard Gibson said...

I'm sure he did pretty well out of them and it didn't harm his persona in anyway. Interestingly I originally went looking for a picture of him with them.

Did Bow Wow Wow have a lot of hits in the UK? Over here, I believe they just had the one (the 'I Want Candy' cover).

Not many stations played "Sexy Eiffel Tower"...

They had maybe 8-10 singles charting in the UK between 1980 and 1983, of which we'd probably best know I Want Candy and the great C30 C60 C90 Go!

Are they perhaps the perfect example of the best and worst of Malcolm McLaren?

Richard Gibson said...

The one I remember, most vividly being played a lot was 'Go Wild in the Country'.

I have a copy of the video for C30 C60 C90 Go!, with the band dancing around the EMI cassette factory. Great stuff.
