Bow Wow Wow – I Want Candy (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 24th May 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

“I Want Candy” is a song written and originally recorded by the Strangeloves in 1965 that went to number 11 in the United States. It is a famous example of a song that uses the Bo Diddley beat.

English new wave group Bow Wow Wow released their version as the first and only single from their EP The Last of the Mohicans. For many in America, “I Want Candy” was their first introduction to young lead singer Annabella Lwin and the band. The song barely scraped the Top 50, but became an enduring new wave classic. The song gave its name to the band’s 1982 release, I Want Candy, which was mainly a compilation, but included a couple of new cuts produced by Kenny Laguna (Joan Jett & the Blackhearts).

The popularity of Bow Wow Wow’s recording, highly associated with 1980s pop music, is partly due to the memorable video that got heavy play in the early days of MTV.

The Bow Wow Wow recording appeared on two VH1 countdowns:

  • No. 86 on VH1’s “100 Greatest Songs of the ’80s”
    No. 8 on VH1’s “100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the ’80s”

The 12″ single release contains the longer “Remix” version.

SIDE A:
I Want Candy (Remix) 3:33
Written-By – Berns*, Feldman*, Goldstein*, Gottehrer*

SIDE B:

Posted by DjPaulT on 30th July 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

I Want Candy, and to a lesser extent Go Wild in the Country!, and Do You Wanna Hold Me? may be well known singles among new wave fans, but Bow Wow Wow’s 1983 single “Love, Peace and Harmony” is a bit more obscure.

Bow Wow Wow – Baby Oh No (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 12th March 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

Formed in 1980 by Malcolm McLaren after the demise of the Sex Pistols, Bow Wow Wow were originally the first lineup of British group Adam And The Ants. On McLaren’s advice, the band ditched Adam. They found their new lead singer in 14-year-old Myint Myint Aye (Burmese for “High High Cool”), who was later renamed Annabella Lwin.

Typified by Burundi-style drumming and Lwin’s singing, which veered between screaming and ritual chants, Bow Wow Wow saw some early success – amid controversy over their singer’s age, and their vocal support of home taping – and increased their range after McLaren’s departure, but never found widespread fame. The group’s biggest hit in the US was “I Want Candy” which peaked at #62 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Baby Oh No” was one of two new songs added to the “I Want Candy” compilation album released in 1982. “Baby Oh No” was produced by Kenny Laguna of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts fame and remixed by Ivan Ivan and Mark Kamins. Released as a single only in the United States,”Baby Oh No” reached #103 on the US Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 and #58 on the Dance/Club play charts.

Special note about this single: The sleeve has a sticker identifying this as “Special Remixed Version”, however this info is not on the record label. Side “B” is labeled as side “D”. This disc may have been part (or was initially intended to have been part) of a 2 disc promotional release, since the flip side of “A” is side “D” (as was sometimes done for multi-disc sets. The matrix numbers also tend to support this theory.

Baby, Oh No (Special Remixed Version) 5:41

SIDE B:
Baby, Oh No 2:44
