Renowned for an endless string of soulful yet socially aware hits, including Forgotten Town, Ideal World, Born Again, Harvest for the World, Hooverville and many more, The Christians enjoyed huge acclaim in the late 80s and early 90s, both in the UK and Europe, and often confused people with their band name (in fact just the brothers' surname, with absolutely no religious connotation!).
Still headed by enigmatic lead singer Garry Christian (who has been described by the press as having 'one of the finest voices in pop') who has only gained in vocal stature over the years, the band are currently enjoying a revival, touring successfully both at home and abroad.
