CHINA CRISIS "Collection"

CHINA CRISIS is an English New Wave Duo/Band composed of vocalist/keyboardist GARY DALY and guitarist EDDIE LUNDON that was formed back in 1979 in Kirkby, near Liverpool, Merseyside. Their output on pop music is of a broader range of musical influences and occasional flirtation with political commentary. With the advent of Music Videos in the early 80s, CHINA CRISIS invaded the shores of the Philippines via their classic song "WISHFUL THINKING" which up to date is the most popular song of the duo here in my country. YUP!! Their concerts here both on December 2002 and January 2011 proved that "WISHFUL THINKING" is their trademark since everyone was active singing to the tune. I'm just glad to see these guys here in MANILA both on 2002 and in their recent 2011 visit. Manila's Legendary New Wave Radio Stations such as WXB 102, DZBM POWER 105, and NU 107 were all responsible in playing their songs back in the 80s that's why they are popular among PINOY NEW WAVERS. Since there were lots of songs from the band on the playlist of XB, BM, and NU then I'll not elaborate on it further.



Throughout their career, China Crisis has seen moderate success in the United Kingdom with ten hit singles between August 1982 and January 1987 and six albums namely Difficult Shapes & Passive Rhythms, Some People Think It's Fun to Entertain (1982),Working with Fire and Steel - Possible Pop Songs Volume Two (1983),Flaunt the Imperfection(1985), What Price Paradise (1986), Diary of a Hollow Horse (1989), and Warped by Success (1994). Of course the band has released Compilations, Live set, and some bootlegs too. They had some commercial success in Western Europe, Australia,the Americas, and here in the Philippines if we're just talking about the PINOY NEW WAVERS/PUNKS during the 80s.


"China Crisis Collection - The Very Best of China Crisis" is a compilation of CHINA CRISIS' best songs which was released back in 1990 and it contains 14 outstanding tracks that you'll enjoy listening from beginning to end. Although 14 songs aren't really enough to be reminded of the band, I still bought the CD back in 1992 since it was their first compilation CD back on those days. Well just in case you wanna have a copy of it, I made my CD available for download here on my special China Crisis blogpost and It's for Promotional Use only okay. YUP!! It's for your listening pleasure!!
