Biography


Culture Club are an English band that were formed in 1981.

Boy George‘s androgynous style of dressing caught the attention of the public and the media. Culture Club’s music combines British new wave and American soul with Jamaican reggae and also other styles such as calypso, salsa or country. The group, supporters of the synth pop genre, made numerous forays into reggae and showed a strong propensity for the subgenre of ballads. They are considered one of the most representative and influential groups of the 1980s.

Led by singer and frontman Boy George, whose androgynous style of dressing caught the attention of the public and the media in the early 1980s, the band have sold more than 150 million records worldwide. Their hits include « Do You Really Want to Hurt Me? », « Church of the Poison Mind », « Karma Chameleon », « Miss Me Blind », « It’s a Miracle », and « The War Song ». In the UK they amassed twelve Top 40 hit singles between 1982 and 1999, including the number ones « Do You Really Want to Hurt Me? » and « Karma Chameleon », the latter being the biggest selling single of 1983, and topped the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1984. « Time (Clock of the Heart) » is included on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s list of 500 songs that shaped rock and roll.

Their second album, Colour by Numbers, sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. It appeared on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 Best Albums of the 1980s and is also included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. Ten of their singles reached the US Top 40, where they are associated with the Second British Invasion of British new wave groups that became popular in the US due to the cable music channel MTV.

In 1984, the group released their third album Waking Up with the House on Fire (UK No. 2, US No. 26) which sold 2.8 million copies worldwide.

The band broke up in 1986, after the release of their fourth album, From Luxury to Heartache. George pursued a solo career, having several European hits and a couple of US Top 40 hits,

The band first tried to reunite in 1989. George, however, was more excited about his future projects like his record label, More Protein, and his new acid house project Jesus Loves You and declined the proposed reunion.

In 1998, the band reunited to do a reunion tour. The tour was a major success. A compilation album was released, and went platinum in UK. It included new songs such as « I Just Wanna Be Loved », which hit UK No. 4. However, their new-found success was short-lived and their fifth studio album, Don’t Mind If I Do, released in 1999, peaked at No. 64 in the UK.

The band went on to tour, then reunited again for a 20th anniversary concert in 2002 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Culture Club then became inactive again, largely due to George‘s successful DJ career.

In 2018, a new album called Life was released in October. The band toured the USA and Europe.
