Since Liverpool, England's China Crisis are already a quiet band to begin with, having them record an unplugged live album could've been a bad idea. After all, what's the appeal in hearing a stripped-down performance from a group that's always been mellow? Surprisingly, China Crisis answer that question with one of the most absorbing and lovingly constructed albums of their career.
By removing the dated synthesizers, China Crisis ' songs sound timeless; morever, the emotion in Gary Daly 's voice isn't suppressed by keyboards.
The track selection is superb; nearly all of China Crisis ' best songs, including "Wishful Thinking," "African and White," and "Black Man Ray," are reworked for this set. The band doesn't shed the tracks of their initial strengths. For example, the drums on "African and White" are almost as forceful as those on the original.
In December , China Crisis' Daly and Lundon held a one night unplugged venue in Manila , Philippines , with the support of a local band, Rivermaya. They toured the UK during January and February as part of their 25th anniversary.
Additionally, gigs were played at the Robin 2, Bilston , Wolverhampton on 20 February , and in Stone, Staffordshire on 22 February In , the band toured more extensively, playing dates in the UK and visiting the United States and Canada as a three-piece with Brian McNeil, before returning for more UK dates including their regular Cavern Club Christmas gigs, again held on a Thursday and Friday as a five-piece.
In , the band played another UK tour, culminating again in their annual Cavern Club shows. During those shows, they paid tribute to Nicky Lundon, brother of Eddie, who had worked extensively with the band, and who had died in that year. Their song "Wishful Thinking" was performed in his memory.
On 16 December , the song "Everyone You Know" was made available as a free download on the Pledge Music website, when pre-ordering the album Autumn in the Neighbourhood announced for release in Autumn in the Neighbourhood was released on 3 June via the Pledge Music website. It was their first studio album for 21 years, and contained 11 songs; however, the pre-release taster track, "Everyone You Know", was not included on the album. The band undertook an extensive promotional tour of the UK from the end of September until December , both as a trio and as a full band.
In November , a compilation album, 80s Recovered , featuring many s-related artists was released on the Music Brokers label. China Crisis contributed a cover of Carole King 's " It's Too Late ", with both a regular version and an extended remix.
