Following the demise of The Sex Pistols, Malcolm McLaren formed Bow Wow Wow in 1980 from former members of Adam And The Ants and a 14-year-old Myint Myint Aye (Burmese for “High High Cool”), who was spotted singing while working a Saturday job at her local dry cleaners, and soon renamed Annabella Lwin.
Bow Wow Wow found early success with their Burundi-style drumming, pop melodies, surf instrumentals and Annabella Lwin’s screams, chants and girlish squeals. But their notoriety soared due to the controversy surrounding Lwin’s age, and the fact that she was featured naked on the band’s first LP in 1981. Soon to be touring the States and opening for bands of the likes of the Pretenders and the Police, Bow Wow Wow released a plethora of singles, many of which came in numerous formats including cassettes, 7 inches, 12 inches and flexi-discs, with many containing alternative versions, b-sides, and remixes – all of which are included here on Your Box Set Pet: The Complete Recordings 1981-1984.
Contains the albums See Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang Yeah, City All Over! Go Ape Crazy! (1981), When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going (1983), the EP Your Cassette Pet (1980), plus all of the band’s singles, b-sides, remixes and rarities.
Includes the hit singles ‘Go Wild In The Country’, ‘I Want Candy’, ‘Do You Wanna Hold Me’, ‘C-30 C-60 C-90 Go!’ and ‘See Jungle! (Jungle Boy)’.
All material has been fully remastered especially for this release.
Comes in a special clam shell style box set containing CD wallet replicas of the band’s albums, faithfully reproducing their original artwork.
