Bow Wow Wow was formed in 1980 by Malcolm McLaren after the demise of the Sex Pistols and were originally the first lineup of British group Adam And The Ants. On McLaren's advice, the band ditched Adam. They found their new lead singer in 14-year-old Myint Myint Aye (Burmese for "High High Cool"), who was later renamed Annabella Lwin. The group split in 1983 and throughout the years have had several reunions.

Peel regularly played Adam And The Ants early records and when the original first lineup decided to form Bow Wow Wow, he kept interest in the group and invited them to perform a session for his show, which they did in late 1980. Bow Wow Wow were regular played by Peel in the early 80's.
