Bow Wow Wow was formed by Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, who convinced three members of Adam and the Ants to leave Adam Ant for the project. Boy George was originally considered as a second singer but was ultimately deemed "too wild."
Their biggest hit, "I Want Candy," was originally done by The Strangeloves in 1965.
The family of lead singer Annabella Lwin almost made her quit the band after the release of a 1982 EP that featured the fifteen-year-old naked.
The album cover was based on Edouard Manet's Le déjeuner sur l'herbe (The Luncheon on the Grass.)
And, just for fun, here's the video for "I Want Candy." Watch for the random shot of Annabella licking an ice-cream cone. Classic.
