The Christians

Doors at 7.30pm

Described as “the Temptations in ripped jeans ……” by one rock critic, the Liverpool band’s infectious melodies and warm harmonies had a deep emotional undercurrent.

Feeding on accusations, protest, despair and even self-doubt, their “socially aware soul” made a big impact on the complacent music scene of the late 80s.

The band’s name came from the surname of the three brothers that were originally in the line-up (Garry, Russell and Roger Christian) and was also, coincidentally, their songwriter/guitarist/keyboards player Henry Priestman’s middle name.
