Working With Fire and Steel
2020 Charity Shop Purchase 15 - China Crisis - Working With Fire And Steel
Back to the Greyhound Rescue shop in Lockerbie and someone had handed in a job lot of ealy 80's vinyl. Unfortunately most of it was by King.Still I managed to come away with a couple.
From 1983 on the Virgin label Working With Fire and Steel - Possible Pop Songs Volume Two was the second album by Liverpool band China Crisis.
Although they often played and recorded as a larger band China Crisis were effectively a duo George Daly on vocals and synthesiser and Eddie Lundon on guitar and vocals.
On this album they are joined by Gary Johnson on bass and Kevin Wilkinson on drums.
The album spent 16 weeks on the charts peaking at number 20. The two singles below got to number 48 and 44 respectively.
It wouldn't take a genius to guess that this album is from the 80's According to Allmusic it is chock full of intelligent, well-written pop songs
My pal Raymie saw them playing live in Largs
