INFO > Brothers Gary, Russell, and Roger Christian, along with Henry Priestman, formed The Christians in 1985. The Liverpudlian ensemble debuted in 1987 with the Laurie Latham produced “Forgotten Town”, which reached 22 on the UK Singles Chart. For its US release, “Forgotten Town” was remixed by Justin Strauss and Murray Elias. As part of the band’s stateside marketing campaign, Island Records pressed promo CDs with sleeve covers personalized for modern rock radio stations in large markets; I recently found a copy branded with the logo of Boston’s now-defunct WFNX.
