Never miss another 'China Crisis' show
China Crisis + DJ Mark Jones
"Founded in Liverpool, England by Gary Daly and Eddie Lundon. The two started working together in 1979 after leaving school.
China Crisis debuted in 1981 with the single "African and White", then followed another single "Scream down at me" in 1982. Both these releases were on a small Liverpool independent label, Inevitable Records.
The band was then signed by Virgin Records who re-released "African and White", which then became a minor UK hit, reaching number 45 in the singles chart.
Support from Peter Coyle (The Lotus Eaters) and a DJ set from Wall of Sound founder Mark Jones. DJ 'til 1am!"
Info provided by the Event Organiser
China Crisis whose distinctive AOR-fuelled pop songs charted in the 80s when they spent a total of 92 weeks in the charts. Who said the Eighties were all bad? China Crisis, for instance, were largely considered one of the better musical things about that much-maligned decade.
They formed in 1979 in Kirkby on Merseyside, with a core band of vocalist/keyboardist Garry Daly and guitarist Eddie Lundon. The band was signed to Virgin Records and recorded their debut album, Difficult Shapes & Passive Rhythms: Some People Think It's Fun To Entertain, which was released in December 1982.
A re-release of 'African & White' became China Crisis' first hit in the UK, reaching number 45 in the UK Singles Chart. When the follow-up single, 'Christian' made UK number 12 in early 1983, this brought them to national prominence along with 'Wishful Thinking'. The band toured Europe and USA during the late eighties and performed in front of crowds as large as 87,00 in Germany.
