Bow Wow Wow - McLaren's voice

How did Bow Wow Wow get their name - Victor Talking LogoRock and new wave band from London, that served as an inspiration source for bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and No Doubt.

Bow Wow Wow was in fact a creation of Malcolm McLaren, who, together with Vivienne Westwood, designed the New Romantic clothing line. Bow Wow Wow was to showcase the garments.

It was McLaren who conceived of the band name, according to the claim made by Bow Wow Wow singer Annabella Lwin. Bow Wow Wow had a contract with RCA, the company that taught Nipper the dog to listen to His Master's Voice.

This led McLaren to an onomatopoeia, imitating, it is assumed, the dog's voice: Bow Wow Wow.
