Without a doubt, the year 2017 has seen more than its fair share of concerts and music-related events by both international and local artists. And while many of them were admittedly fine displays of current, trendy musicianship and well, artists with a present single or two, it is arguable that none of them come close to celebrating an actual movement - or renaissance-like period, if you will – in our country’s proud musical history. In most cases, it’s actually a toss-up between current flavors-of-the-month, and well, artists who are only starting to make their way to our shores after a long wait.

Throwback: An evening of nostalgia from the eighties

An evening of nostalgia from the eighties.
by Stephen Lavoie

A decent sized crowd showing up at the Kia Theater to witness this English band formed by core members Gary Daly on vocals/keyboard and Eddie Lundon on guitar. Along with the front act of Peter Coyle, lead vocalist of the Lotus Eaters. Often overlooked, China Crisis is one of those eighties bands that received high praise from critics, yet limited commercial success, moreover, it certainly shouldn’t be. With a bit of research into their music, it’s obvious there’s a deep songwriting skill at work here. Perhaps forgoing the recognition of other bands from that era, due to the subtle and melodic nature of their sound. They did dabble in various experimental sounds, as any synth-pop band would, mixing various styles into a pop sensibility. Consequently, that is what has endeared them to their longtime fans, by maintaining a distinct identity and direction. Accordingly, not as much of a creative restlessness that you often experience with musical groups, with an itch they just can’t scratch, jumping around to various genres. But let’s face it, most of the memorable stuff from the 80’s was more in-your-face, loud and full of rage. On the contrary, China Crisis reached a moderate level of international success from a much more sublet sound.
