China Crisis In-depth Biography

Mostly a duo of vocalist/keyboard player Gary Daly} and guitarist Eddie Lundon}, the group formed in 1979 near Liverpool. The first China Crisis} single, "African and White," didn't appear until 1982, but it was quickly picked up by Virgin and made the British charts.
