[1977-…], London, Greater London, United Kingdom


Scritti Politti are a British pop band, originally formed in 1977 in Leeds, Yorkshire, England, by Cardiff-born singer-songwriter Paul Julian Strohmeyer (most known as Green Gartside), only member of the band to have remained throughout the group’s history.

Initially a left-wing-inspired post-punk rock group, Scritti Politti developed into a more mainstream pop music project in the early to mid-1980s, enjoying significant success in the record charts in the UK and the US.

Scritti Politti’s most successful album, 1985’s Cupid & Psyche 85, spawned three UK Top 20 hits with “Wood Beez (Pray Like Aretha Franklin)”, “Absolute”, and “The Word Girl”, as well as a US Top 20 hit with “Perfect Way”.

The band’s 1988 album Provision was a UK Top 10 success, though it only produced one UK Top 20 hit single (“Oh Patti”).

After releasing a couple of non-album singles in 1991, as well as a collaboration with B.E.F., Green Gartside became disillusioned with the music industry and retired to south Wales for more than seven years.

Scritti Politti returned to music-making in the late 1990s, releasing a new album, Anomie & Bonhomie (1999), which included various rap and hip hop influences. In 2006, another new album was released, the stripped-down White Bread, Black Beer which returned to the more experimental era of the band’s history.
