EMI Digital Download Bow Wow Wow Girl Bites Dog: Your Digital Pet

‘Girl Bites Dog: Your Digital Pet’

Release date: 28 August 2006

Proto-New Wave outfit Bow Wow Wow was the brainchild of punk impresario Malcolm McLaren, and was formed of some of the original members of Adam and the Ants.
The band was completed by a provocative teenager, Burmese Londoner named Annabella Lwin on vocals, who caused a sensation when she appeared naked on a Bow Wow Wow record sleeve aged 15. They also briefly included one Leiutenant Lush in their lineup, who would later become known as Boy George.

In 1980 the band's first single, 'C30, C60, C90... Go!' was released on EMI on cassette only. The cassette theme was continued with the EP that followed, 'Your Cassette Pet'.

Later in 1983, when Bow Wow Wow were enjoying some success Stateside, EMI forged an album together from the early recordings: the aptly named '12 Original Recordings' - the original 8 tracks from 'Your Cassette Pet' and the 2 tracks from the 'C30, C60, C90 Go' cassette single with the addition of the tracks 'Mile High Club' and an extended (disco) version of 'W.O.R.K.'

Six other tracks were added to this to create the 1993 CD 'Girl Bites Dog: Your Compact Disc Pet.'
This is the digital generation of that same collection.

Also available for the first time are four digital video downloads.

Bow Wow Wow are still going strong and are touring the US in October this year.
