In 1980 Malcom McLaren persuaded the Ants of “Adam & The Ants” to leave Adam and form their own band: Bow Wow Wow. Guitarist Matthew Ashman, drummer David Barbarossa and bassist Leigh Gorman took 6 months of auditions to find the 14 years old singer Annabella Lwin. “I Want Candy” is probably their biggest hit, originally recorded in 1965 by the Strangeloves, this song perfectly sums up the great sound of Bow Wow Wow: beautiful afro percussions, a stylish bass and the energy of Annabella vocals are the main elements of this cover. The song is remixed by NY’ DJs Mark Kamins and Ivan Ivan.
