Original pop punks Bow Wow Wow have reformed for a short American tour.

The I WANT CANDY group, fronted by feisty ANNABELLA LWIN (corr), have lined up a handful of dates with more to come if the tour is a success.

Lwin has teamed up with bassist LEIGH GORMAN for the tour, and they've drafted No Doubt drummer Adrian Young to join them on the road in the absence of DAVE BARBAROSSA, who was too busy with his group Chicane to tour.

COMMON SENSE guitarist PHIL GOUGH will fill the role of MATTHEW ASHMAN on the tour. Ashman died of complications relating to diabetes in 1995.

Speaking to music trade paper Billboard, Lwin, who now lives in Los Angeles, says, "I wouldn't call it a reunion, quite. It's more of a nostalgia trip."
