About the Event
When The Christians released their debut album in 1987, they were certainly a breath of fresh air. Mixing ‘60s- and ‘70s-influenced soul with a then-modern pop flair, that self-titled album was an instant success. With songs chiefly written by the enormously talented Henry Priestman (the very same man who handled the same role in new wave/power pop legends Yachts nearly a decade before), the Christians were a pop phenomenon. With lead vocals handled by Garry Christian and backing vocals by his brother, Russell, and multi-instrumentalist Priestman, the band's sound was instantly identifiable. They were so popular that even Seal was compared to the Christians as he began to get his own career off the ground in the early ‘90s.
