I was eight years old when the song "dance hall days" by Wang Chung was a hit and being the kid I was, I was totally enthralled by that song and its "Wizard of Oz" music video. Now 1984 also was the year that the annual Pinkpop festival decided to have a look at the singles charts and booked bands who were big but very interesting in those days. So when watching the thing on TV, I was delighted to see Wang Chung there, now as they started playing their big hit "Dance hall days" I noticed two things. 1. No saxophone 2. The left handed player switched instruments and all of a sudden had a very different sound. That's when my cousin told me "He's playing a bass guitar." which was the first time I heard of such a thing.
