In 1980 punk rock chancer and self aggrandizing publicity Frankenstein Malcolm McLaren created Bow Wow Wow. Basically Adam & the Ants with the then 13 year old Annabella Lwin on screeching vocals rescued from her job at a North London dry cleaning establishment. The tribal drumming of home taping anthem C-30 C-60 C-90 Go, the world’s first ever cassette single, established both band and Annabella as bright young new wave things. Roll back the years and don’t forget home taping is killing music.
