Remember the hit songs Ideal World and Forgotten Town? The band’s name refers to the surname of lead singer Garry Christian and his two brothers Roger and Russell, and the middle name of guitarist Henry Priestman, who formed the band in Liverpool in the 80's. Their debut double platinum album The Christians was released in 1987 making No 2 in the album charts. The 90's were filled with more success, the second album Colour released in 1990 going to No 1 in the album charts, followed by Happy in Hell in 1992 and The Best Of album released in 1993.

Fast-forward to 2009, with a new line-up the fifth album Soul From Liverpool was released followed by Speed of Life in 2012 and We released in 2015. They have just released their latest album Sings and Strings.
