80s Band Forgotten #1

What to Blog about?!

After listening to the now defunct DaygloRadio, the best thing to ever happen to internet radio(tear wells up), Radiohidebound excluded, I have become acquainted with a lot of 80s bands that I never heard of (or heard very little about). I have procured more 80s music of late than I have modern day music. Viva La 80s!!!

So, with a nod of thanks to both DGR and radiohidebound, I will periodically write a review of "new" 80s bands that should be given a listen.

First up! China Crisis!

Now, Zippychik and I disagree on which is their best song. Although I have become very fond of Zippy's "Arizona Sky", I still hold that "King In A Catholic Style" is their best song. I've since looked into other songs of theirs and "Black Man Ray" has become an addition to my CD Mixes for my car.

So, 80s fans! Our first contestant is China Crisis! Look into this band and realize that, truly, the 80s rule.

My fave song from China Crisis is the relatively unavailable "Forever I and I" from the 12" EP Working With Fire and Steel. The EP, from 1982, was never released on CD and I've never seen the song on any of the compilations. The song was listed as being on one of the comps I bought from some online store, then I got the disappointment of it not being on the disc. Sigh.

Other than "Forever I and I", I'd probably pick "Here Comes A Raincloud" as a fave.

for a sample of China Crisis' "Working With Fire And Steel" (there "hit") and Black Man Ray as well as several others, pop by (or click the Temerity quick link) and request a China Crisis song. You'll be glad you did.

Notice of "Arizona Sky" and "King In A Catholic Sky" being added to a certain Internet radio station can be found here.

How am I supposed to crush the Dolls of Venus when I have to divide my requests over all the great selections on hidebound. BLAST!

"Arizona Sky" is now on hidebound???!!!! Marry me, kah, marry me!!! Oh wait a minute, I'm already married. My bad. I'll request "Arizona Sky" anyway. Thanks, kah.

China Crisis rules!!! The title track from that EP "Working with Fire & Steel" is a tremendously good son, too!
