China Crisis: China Greatness

Emerging from Liverpool in 1981, China Crisis came to prominence amidst the city’s exploding music scene. The songwriting duo of Gary Daly and Eddie Lundon forged a distinctive sound, blending elements of synthpop, reggae, and country with eccentric influences like Eric Satie and Steely Dan. Augmenting synthesizers with organic instrumentation and working with acclaimed producers, China Crisis crafted sophisticated pop that stood out from the trends. They landed chart hits across the globe, including Wishful Thinking, Christian and Black Man Ray.

Now with decades of renowned live shows under their belts, China Crisis retain a loyal fanbase spanning generations. Their enduring harmonic pop and Scouse wit continue winning over new audiences today. More than a synth band, China Crisis wrote indelible songs distinguished by lyricism and musicality rather than technology. Their unique sonic identity still feels fresh, underscoring why the band remain beloved
