Crisis, What Crisis?

China Crisis' "The World Spins, I'm Part Of It" popped up on the old iPod shuffle the other day, and it prompted me to dig out the album it came from - "Flaunt The Imperfection" from 1985 - and listen to it all the way through for the first time in years. I found most of their other records a bit weedy, with a few honourable exceptions like "African And White" and "Christian", but they really hit the spot with this one. Of course it must help to have Walter Becker from Steely Dan producing. His influence is particularly noticeable on the second selection.

"The World Spins, I'm Part Of It" - China Crisis

"You Did Cut Me" - China Crisis

And here they are doing the big hit from the album.
