THE CHRISTIANS: THE ANVIL, BASINGSTOKE 12/5/17
“We’ve just been for a vindaloo so don’t come too close to the stage” warns frontman Garry Christian. Having seen the group with a recent cut-down acoustic format I was keen to see the full band show. I wasn’t to be disappointed as the rich soul sound is there in abundance.
Garry Christian, the commanding lead vocalist, is the only remaining member of the original line-up. His vocals steal the show, they always have, and he’s got charisma and Scouse wit to carry off his frequent banter, including about his age (he jokes he is 49 but that he could pass for younger). The internet says he’s 52.
