China Crisis- The Artist

China Crisis are an English new wave and synth-pop band. They were formed in Kirkby, near Liverpool, Merseyside in 1979 with a core of lead vocalist and keyboardist Gary Daly and guitarist Eddie Lundon. Initially a politically charged post-punk band influenced by Brian Eno’s ambient soundscapes, China Crisis soon crossed over to a more commercial sound and had success in the United Kingdom in the 1980s with ten top 50 singles (four of them reached the top 20) and three top 40 albums (two entered the top 20 and received a gold certification.

King in a Catholic Style (Wake up) – The Song

King in a Catholic Style (Wake up) is a song by English new wave and synth-pop band China Crisis. It was released as the second single from their third studio album Flaunt the Imperfection (1985), and reached number 19 on the UK Singles Chart.

The Kings Crown – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a Kings crown.  A crown is a traditional form of head adornment, or hat, worn by monarchs as a symbol of their power and dignity. A crown is often, by extension, a symbol of the monarch’s government or items endorsed by it. The word itself is used, particularly in Commonwealth countries, as an abstract name for the monarchy itself, as distinct from the individual who inhabits it (that is, The Crown). A specific type of crown (or coronet for lower ranks of peerage) is employed in heraldry under strict rules. Indeed, some monarchies never had a physical crown, just a heraldic representation, as in the constitutional kingdom of Belgium.
