Bow Wow Wow ‎– "Your Cassette Pet" (EMI ‎– WOW 1) 1980



Did someone say Bow Wow Wow?I bet you didn't expect anything on EMI on Die or DIY ?;yes? well here's that art terrorist Maclaren's pre-fabbed band that made bootlegging fashionable. Anabella Lwin's awful ear piercing squeal, the terrible overplayed basslines, the paedophile pandering under-ageness. This is here because someone bought me this for christmas in 1980,”C30 C60 C90 Go!” made a pop hit of what was happening in the cassette underground, and Cassiber(in the previous post) reminded me of Dave Barbarossa's Burundi drumming. Still its pretty indicative of the shift from new wave into the New Pop of 1982; intelligent, cynical, and attractively hideous. Just like Pop Music should be.
(Interesting to see if I get a DCMA complaint about this?)

Tracklist:

A1 Louis Quatorze
A2 Gold He Said
A3 Uomo Sex Al Apache
A4 I Want My Baby On Mars
B1 Sexy Eiffel Towers
B2 Giant Sized Baby Thing
B3 Fools Rush In
B4 Radio G String

A somewhat guilty pleasure, but maybe that's the best kind. :)

Almost an unforgivably guilty pleasure?

I don't let anyone know that i still like this. But everyone takes themselves so damn seriously these days. Another great post, thank you again. Oakland CA

Absolutely, a sense of humour is essential.....especially in the Art world. I like A Flock of Seagulls, and I tell everyone that I do.....Fuck em.

Guilty pleasures? I don't believe in those. I like what I like. Whatever mood I'm in, I'll slam on TG or Merzbow just as readily as ELO or Adam & The Ants. Screw everybody. I'm not embarrassed by anything I wanna get into. I gave up worrying about hipster street cred about 30 years ago. Yeah, I'm old. And this is one of the greatest music blogs ever to grace the interwebs. I love you, man! XOXOXOXO

Thanks David.
I must admit that I don't enjoy ELO, but am a secret Queen fan,before they went Disco, and think Genesis are quite marvellous....even some of the post Gabriel stuff.
I love you too.....kisses.
