Wang Chung

Wang Chung

Profile:
An '80s New Wave band, was founded in 1979 as Huang Chung by Jack Hues (lead vocals, keyboards, guitar), Nick Feldman (vocals, keyboards, bass guitar) and Darren Costin (vocals, drums, percussion, keyboards).
In 1981 the group expanded to a quartet, with the addition of sax player David Burnand. In keeping with the all-pseudonymous nature of the band, Burnand was known as Hogg Robinson for the first Arista single, and later, simply as Hogg.
Their self-titled debut album was released by Arista Records in 1982 after several profile raising singles.
Meanwhile, after the release, David Burnand left due to "musical differences".
In late 1982, Huang Chung they signed with American label Geffen Records. They changed the spelling of their name to Wang Chung (at David Geffen’s suggestion, to make pronunciation easier).
