Enjoyable and controversial, what a voice too. I saw them perform live recentlty (August 15th 2016) in Saratoga and they put on a real show. Original line up almost with a big backing band and every song was standing ovation. George had to keep asking the audience to sit down and be quiet. They played a few new songs from the forthcoming albums "Tribes" and they sounded on fire hot. Hope they release it in time for Christmas. When I was young they were very popular and even though it wasn't my sort of thing back then, everyone knew they had some great songs. Hard to believe they could write so well and sing so well and then to see them live in 2016 and they sound better than I could have ever imagined. Mind Blowing really.

Boy George was a fixation in my early teens - like a living puppet among teenage idols of that time, I took notice by listening to Culture Club. I remember that charming headline in newsweek 'Britain Rocks America Again'... with Ann Lennox and Boy George posing so effectively. Culture Club for all that's worth about their music, the group gave two fine pop-albums - 'Kissing To Be Clever' and 'Colour By Numbers'. While the first one combined dub effects over funk and reggae-spiced music (the entire affair is somewhat reminiscent of Bow Wow Wow/Malcolm McLaren's pop-demonstration), the second effort took more of a pop course and earned the group a number of deserved hits - among them 'Karma Chameleon' seems to be the best-remembered ever. Afterwards, Boy George ran into serious drug problems, the group seriously ran out of ideas and as the 80s progressed none of them offered any considerable developments - Boy George continued his carreer solo. 'To Be Reborn' reflects some of the Culture Club's charm although 'Sold' is just a number in a vacuum of albums that circled around in 1987-88...
