China Crisis – Saint Saviour Square (12″)


From the much overlooked album, “Dairy Of A Hollow Horse” .This has a gospel feel to it, sumptuous production by Mike Thorne sounding a little like ABC, dream pop at it’s best. It was met with deaf ears by the public and so the album flop. Gary and Eddie had been joined by Brian McNeill on keyboards, Gazza Johnson (ex- Hambi And The Dance) on bass and Kevin Wilkinson on drums. Another album track, “Back Home” is classic China Crisis, with some great pedal steel and production by Walter Beckett, Steely Dan-esque as you’d expect.

  1. The album, Diary Of A Hollow Horse is a great mix of the band’s sound journey to that point. The mix of producers worked out well and the album should have been a big hit.

  2. Maybe not holding my mouth right, but not getting either link to work here… Anyone else? Darlin Buds also giving me trouble. Sure I messed up something somewhere.
