China Crisis, pioneers of the 1980s New Wave from Liverpool, are doing their first-ever tour of Australia! Wishful Thinking, Working With Fire and Steel, Tragedy and Mystery, and a tonne more are performed, and their greatest hits and fan favorites. China Crisis’s sound has distinguished itself from its contemporaries by frequently fusing components from different genres.
The band’s “Wall of God” was included in the popular movie Gone Girl, and classics by China Crisis have been sampled into contemporary tracks by artists like French Montana and Action Bronson, bringing their music to a new audience. The Liverpool-based early 1980s musical revolution that gave us OMD, Echo and the Bunnymen, and Frankie Goes to Hollywood also included China Crisis.
An English new wave and the synth-pop band is called China Crisis. They were founded in 1979 by guitarist Eddie London and vocalist/keyboardist Gary Daly in Kirkby, Merseyside, close to Liverpool. In the late 1970s & 1980s, OMD headed a group of fresh Liverpool bands that included China Crisis, Echo and the Bunnymen, The Teardrop Explodes, A Flock of Seagulls, and Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
Originally a politically charged post-punk band with ambient soundscapes by Brian Eno. With 10 Top 50 singles and three Top 40 albums in the 1980s, China Crisis quickly shifted to a more mainstream sound and found success there (two entered the Top 20 and received a Gold certification). The group also had commercial success in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Western Europe (especially in Spain, Ireland, and the Netherlands), and some small chart success in the Americas (particularly Canada).
