Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Bow Wow Wow - I Want Candy

Bow Wow Wow was a 1980s new Wave band created by Malcolm McLaren to promote his and business partner Vivienne Westwood's, New Romantic fashion lines. The group's music is described as having an 'African-derived drum sound'. McLaren persuaded guitarist Matthew Ashman, bassist Leigh Gorman and percussionist David Barbarossa (also known as Dave Barbe), of the then lineup of Adam and the Ants to leave Adam Ant (born, Stuart Leslie Goddard) and form a new group. After a six-month long audition process, the band hired teen singer Annabella Lwin. Musician David Fishel, originally from Liverpool, an acquaintance of McLaren's, discovered 14-year-old Lwin while she was working a Saturday job at her local dry cleaning shop. She was singing along to a Stevie Wonder song on the radio.

'I Want Candy' is a song written and originally recorded by The Strangeloves in 1965. Bow Wow Wow later recorded the song following other hits like 'Go Wild the Country'. 'I Want Candy' was featured in an early music video on MTV and made it to number 39 in the UK singles Charts.
