China Crisis – African And White (12″)

Two men and a human drum machine (Kevin Wilkinson). A pristine copy of an early China Crisis 12″ from 1982. A bit of a candidate for misheard lyric song of the century, I still struggle to make out what he’s singing about in places, “Life is a fever in Israel?” or ” life is a fever that is real” This was a reissue of their debut single after the success of “Christian” given a slight remix by Jeremy Lewis as was the track “Be Suspicious” with it’s weird synth break towards the end. The main track has a delicious bass-line and layered precussion, a dreamy slice of synthpop. “Red Sails” is another gentle, drum machine led track produced by Gil Norton.
