"Bow Wow Wow was one of many female-fronted New Wave bands from the early eighties. These bands evolved from the punk scene and were influenced by some extent by the disco scene. They sang shorter songs, backed by an electronic beat. The lead singer would have a girlish, but sexy voice and sort of shout/sing the lyrics. Groups included Romeo Void, Motels, Berlin and Missing Persons.Bow Wow Wow was a little bit different in that the singer had a Burmese/English accent, they had a hard driving African rhythm and they were from England (like all forms of modern music, Punk/New Wave originated in the US and was adopted by the British). Bow Wow Wow was one of the pioneers in rock videos, producing their first video before MTV first started broadcasting. These New Wave groups did not produce many full length albums. Instead they generated tons of singles, EP's and 12 inch singles. They could take one song, remix it in different ways, and release it as several different singles. Alot these were dance mixes, aimed for the club scene (as Disco evolved from the traditional Bee Gees/Donna Summer crowd, to the Yuppie/cocaine crowd). Bow Wow Wow only released two official albums. Everything else are compilations and "greatest hits", plus one live album from the nineties.This CD is a compilation from many different sources. It contains music from an 8 song cassette tape called "Your Cassette Pet", songs from a number of EP's plus b sides from many singles. It has 18 tracks and is 50 minutes long. All of the tracks are short, with a high energy African beat. This isn't Bow Wow Wow's best CD. The songs are mostly from the earlier, more silly stage of the group. The continious, staccaco beat, song after song, is a bit tiring and hard to take in a single sitting. But, if you want to put something on and dance like crazy for 50 minutes, this is the perfect CD.If you can find this CD at the cut out price, it is quite a bargain."
Gold I said!

"Chunka-chunka guitars and percussion overload. Surf-sounding mysteriosos and breathless, ridiculous, sex-filled lyrics. I love BWW. they were funny, smart, and stylish. The albumthat this reminds one of was an early import that many new-wavers bought in the early 80s after we'd used up See Jungle See Jungle and needed more! The track listing is NOT the same as that priceless import classic, but it'll do for the true fan. Everyone else proceed with caution. If you like the rawer Adam and the Ants of "kings of the wild frontier" you might like this. Just wading in? Buy "See Jungle See Jungle..." first. Either one has "go Wild in the country" a BRILLIANT song."
Good, liner notes are good!

"Although I wouldn't call this the BEST collection of Bow wow wow's career, I'd say this is a decent album to have, especially since it has great liner notes and photos in the insert."
