China Crisis


After their successful debut at Lowdham, China Crisis return.  China Crisis are an English new wave and synth-pop band. They were formed in 1979 in Kirkby, near Liverpool, Merseyside with a core of vocalist/keyboardist Gary Daly and guitarist Eddie Lundon and achieved chart success throughout the 1980s, having had two albums certified Gold in the UK.

A bit fiery for most in the new romantic camp during the early ’80s, China Crisis were inspired by similar sources but injected their pop songs with occasional political commentary and bluesy reggae rhythms. Comprising the core duo of vocalist/keyboard player, Gary Daly and guitarist Eddie Lundon, the group formed in 1979 near Liverpool, England.

China Crisis distinguished themselves from Liverpudlian peers like Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, The Teardrop Explodes, and Echo & The Bunnymen by digesting a cornucopia of musical genres, everything from jazz to progressive rock. Despite the stylistic deviations, China Crisis maintained their distinctive sound through a number of albums in the ’80s and ’90s.

The band made a comeback in the 2000s with many national tours of the UK.
