No More Blue Horizons Fool, Fool, Fool 3:48. Feel to Be Driven Away 2:55. Some People I Know to Lead Fantastic Lives 3:33. Christian 5:37. China Crisis. It is plainly obvious that, no matter how uncommercial a particular song may be, the boys in China Crisis put their heart and soul into it, creating something uniquely their own, and building upon it. They would finally work their quirks effortlessly into the music on their sophomore release, but there's plenty for synth fans and '80s fans to find here. Difficult Shapes And Passive Rhythms Some People Think It's Fun To Entertain. Please retry. China Crisis were formed in 1979 in Kirkby, near Liverpool, Merseysidewith a core of vocalistkeyboardist Gary Daly and guitarist Eddie Lundon. I used to have this album on cassette, and after about thirty years got it back again blasting out in my car. Christian was the reason I got into CC but the the rest of the album is superb having a bonus disc with extras Read more. China Crisis - Some People I Know To Lead Fan.

The first China Crisis album is a delight of low key, introspective pop with ambient instrumental touches and ramshackle production by a cast of three. In hindsight, the sterling No More Blue Horizons reveals the latent Steely-Dan leanings of the group, with its lead lines given a very Steely Dan feel in the pitch bending and portamento, but by itself, it can't be faulted.
