THE DALY RECORD

CHINA CRISIS’ LEAD SINGER GARY DALY HAS JUST RELEASED HIS DEBUT SOLO ALBUM, GONE FROM HERE, AND IT MIGHT JUST B E THE BEST THING YOU’ LL HEAR THIS YEAR. ANDY JONES TALKS TO GARY ABOUT RETURNING TO HIS SYNTH ROOTS AND ENGAGING WITH A NEW BAND OF MUSICIANS TO PRODUCE A PERFECT B LEND OF MELANCHOL IC, YET UPL I F TING POP…
He’s kept us waiting – 40 years into his career with China Crisis, Gary Daly has just released his first solo album

Gary Daly is a prolific songwriter, of that there’s no doubt. Think Tragedy And Mystery, Christian, King In A Catholic Style (Wake Up), Arizona Sky, Black Man Ray and a hundred other China Crisis songs on which he has a credit. Yet the revival of his band’s live fortunes – China Crisis have at least 70 gigs booked for this year alone – has meant that many of his written works don’t get the chance to reach ‘Possible Pop Song’ status. That’s about to change with his debut solo album, though. Gone From Here has been such a long time coming, and has such a pedigree of musicians and producers involved, that you can almost anticipate the quality. Daly has drafted in favours, fans and Grammy winners – plus a sackload of old synths from the China’s debut recordings – and sprinkled the whole work with a summery and melancholic charm that makes it an album that will be not only be adored by vintage Crisis lovers, but one that their children might well embrace, too.
