The official Bow Wow Wow web site:


I have been a big fan of Bow Wow Wow since 1980. I saw them perform live ten times from 1981 thru 1983 when they traveled to the USA and played at New York and New Jersey clubs. I missed their short 1997 reunion USA tour but I finally got to see them again after 21 years on July, 15, 2004 at "Downtown" in Farmingdale, New York. Even with a different guitar player and drummer, they sounded just as I remembered them and actually better than ever throughout their 75 minute, 18 song set (check out the set list ; I wish they would have performed Louis Quatorze and Chihuahua but it was still a great show). Annabella stills looks awesome (even more so) and is as dynamic a performer as she ever was. Nobody is a more energetic performer than Annabella. I hope Bow Wow Wow continues to perform and I get the opportunity to see them again. I also hope all the old (and new) Bow Wow Wow fans enjoy looking through these photos as much as I did working on them to create this website.

Coming soon:

I have over 400 photos from the below ten Bow Wow Wow shows from 1981-1983 which I had scanned into computer files from my 35 mm film negatives. The quality is not as good as the 2004 photos taken with a digital camera but they are still a great remembrance of those old shows. I am carefully "cleaning up" each photo, one at a time, to optimize the quality so this will take a while. All these old photos will be added to this website for Bow Wow Wow fans everywhere to enjoy looking at. I believe the June 17, 1983 show was the last day that Bow Wow Wow performed together until their 1997 reunion tour.

  • Annabella Lwin: lead vocals

  • Dave Barbarossa: drums

In addition, I have a "scrapbook" folder which has about an inch thick of Bow Wow Wow magazine articles and color magazine photos from the 1981-1983 time period. Once I finish adding all the old concert photos to this website, I will scan and add all those old articles and magazine photos to the website too.
