Bow Wow Wow- The Artist/s
Bow Wow Wow are an English new wave band, created by manager Malcolm McLaren in 1980. McLaren recruited members of Adam and the Ants (Barbarossa (also known as Dave Barbe), guitarist Matthew Ashman and bassist Leigh Gorman) to form the band behind 13-year-old Annabella Lwin on vocals. They released their debut EP Your Cassette Pet in 1980, and had their first UK top 10 hit with “Go Wild in the Country” in 1982. The band’s music was characterised by a danceable new wave sound that drew on a Burundi beat provided by Dave Barbarossa on drums, as well as the suggestive lyrics squealed into the mic by their teenage lead vocalist.
C-30, C-60, C-90 Anda! – The Song
‘C-30, C-60, C-90 Anda!‘ is the Spanish version of English new wave band Bow Wow Wows debut single C·30 C·60 C·90 Go which was originally released in 1980. It was written by Malcolm McLaren, Matthew Ashman, Leigh Gorman and Dave Barbarossa. Originally only released on cassette, it was the world’s first-ever cassette single. EMI refused to promote the cassingle due to lyrics (“Off the radio I get constant flow/Hit it, pause it, record and play/Turn it, rewind and rub it away”) that promoted home taping during an era when music piracy was a hot-button issue. After several weeks, it was also issued as a vinyl 7″ single, reaching No. 34 on the UK Singles Chart and staying on the chart for seven weeks. The Spanish version “C·30 C·60 C·90 Anda”, was used as the B-side to their follow-up single, “W.O.R.K (N.O. Nah No! No! My Daddy Don’t)”.
The Vintage Compact Cassette Tape – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a compact cassette tape. The Compact Cassette or Musicassette (MC), also commonly called the tape cassette, cassette tape, audio cassette, or simply tape or cassette, is an analog magnetic tape recording format for audio recording and playback. It was developed by Philips in Hasselt, Belgium, and introduced in September 1963. Compact Cassettes come in two forms, either already containing content as a prerecorded cassette (Musicassette), or as a fully recordable “blank” cassette. Both forms are reversible by the user.The compact cassette technology was originally designed for dictation machines, but improvements in fidelity led the Compact Cassette to supplant the stereo 8-track cartridge and reel-to-reel tape recording in most non-professional applications. Its uses ranged from portable audio to home recording to data storage for early microcomputers. The first cassette player (although mono) designed for use in car dashboards was introduced in 1968. From the early 1970s to mid-2000s, the cassette was one of the two most common formats for prerecorded music, first alongside the LP record and later the compact disc (CD).
