The Arc, Stockton-on-Tees
Back with a new album, their first in 20 years - courtesy of an online pledge campaign - China Crisis are currently touring the UK.
They pulled the curious trick of being their own support act, with the trio of Eddie Lundon, Gary Daly and Brian McNeil performing a small number of stripped back songs before taking a break. They emerged again around 20 minutes later, joined by three more band members.
Incidentally, even though the online campaign smashed through the initial target, it is still possible to pledge and claim a suitable reward.
