If the name of the band Bow Wow Wow doesn’t ring a bell, then maybe the song “I Want Candy” will. Bow Wow Wow is releasing Wild in the USA, a collection of rare remixes and live recordings of your favorite 80’s hits that will surely keep the decade alive in the next millennium. The remixes don’t sound very retro, but are more ’90’s style with big bass, added samples, and real house/dance beats.
They reworked such hits such as “I Want Candy”, “C30 C60 C90 GO!”, and “Do You Wanna Hold Me”. While the record contains six remixes, the live recordings remind their fans of how dazzling the band’s live performances once were with Latin percussion and vocalist Annabella Lwin’s energy. The live recordings are great. They were recorded at The Bluebird Theatre in Denver and The Drama Club in Santa Fe, New Mexico during Bow Wow Wow’s last tour which started in December of 1997 and ended in March of 1998. The album also includes classics like “Aphrodisiac” and “Uomo Sex Al Apache.” Wild in the USA is a must for any Bow Wow Wow junkie.
