Item #15: Wang Chung Mosaic T-Shirt

Year: 1987

Circulation: Rarer than new wave with acoustic guitars.

This British new wave outfit was originally called Huang Chung for two years before they replaced Huang with Wang. The band reportedly grew tired of people incorrectly pronouncing “Huang” as “Hung” rather than “Wang” and altered the spelling on their second album. Intended or accidental innuendo aside what does the name really mean? The band first explained that it meant “perfect pitch” but later changed their tune and said it’s the sound an electric guitar makes.
