CHINATOWN picture
CHINATOWN was borne out of guitarist Pat Shayler and bassist John Barr's departure from college band JODY. Beginning life as the Glam influenced CHINASTREET, this Fareham, Hampshire based band soon switched to a more direct approach.

CHINATOWN's debut line up found the band fronted by vocalist Steve Southern with Shayler and Barr joined by keyboard player Adrian Chase and drummer Russ Payne. A major line up shuffle resulted in the keyboards being ditched in favour of second guitarist Danny Gwilym, Southern being ousted by Steve Pragnell and Steve Hopggod taking over the drum stool. Hopgood had previously been in SHY, a Portsmouth based outfit that also featured lead vocalist BRIAN HOWE, later to find fame fronting BAD COMPANY. CHINATOWN soon became noted for the distinctive vocal style of Pragnell and the quintet was quick to release the sought after 'Play It To Death' album, which was recorded live.
