Bow Wow Wow - Louis Quatorze


On this date in 1982, Bow Wow Wow released their ninth single, "Louis Quatorze". It was backed by "The Mile High Club". The A side first appeared on their debut release, a cassette-only EP called Your Cassette Pet. Both songs appeared on the four song EP, The Last Of The Mohicans, as well as their third album, I Want Candy. The A side, however, was a version that was exclusive to the single. The single reached the #66 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The London new wave band formed when Leigh Gorman, Matthew Ashman and Dave Barbarossa were steered away from Adam and The Ants. Add Annabella Lwin and you have Bow Wow Wow. They were managed by ex-Sex Pistols' manager Malcolm McLaren. They disbanded in 1983.

Hey Karate Boogaloo.
No, definitely not. I am very impressed by the photography there and want to turn on our readers to this work. On the other hand, sometimes life gets in the way of doing things as quickly as you'd like. I don't want to do this an injustice by making it quick and dirty. Hang in there. It will be coming soon.
