Bow Wow Wow Take Trip, Yeah!
Toby Goldstein, Creem, March 1982
NEW YORK — The first time Bow Wow Wow were ready to tour America their 15-year-old singer Annabella Lu Win had either a) stage fright, b) a sore throat, c) a fight with her mother, d) nervous exhaustion (choose one or more). As we recall fondly, the group's cancellation at the Ritz was replaced by the PiL art show. But second time around, it's as if the first set of problems never happened. This quartet of teenagers, steered into hits and notoriety by Malcolm McLaren, forgot about everything except demonstrating how to have a good time.
