VIDEO OF THE WEEK: BOW WOW WOW – ‘I WANT CANDY’

June 22, 2020

Produced by Kenny Laguna, best known for his work with Joan Jett.

Bow Wow Wow followed the success of their eccentrically-titled debut album ‘See Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang, Yeah. City All Over! Go Ape Crazy’ and Top 10 hit single ‘Go Wild In The Country’ with this cover of The Stranglove’s 1965 single ‘I Want Candy’.

And though this 1982 video is very much of its time, heavy rotation on the nascent MTV satellite channel ensured that this idiosyncratic British band – inspired in equal parts by Burundi beats and punk rock – gained a new audience in the United States.
