Mix - Culture Club

History Formation and Kissing to Be Clever: After his tenure with the group ended, George decided to start his own band and enlisted bassist Mikey Craig, drummer Jon Moss, and finally guitarist Roy Hay.

Realising they had an Irish gay man as the lead singer, a black Briton on bass, a blond Englishman on guitar and keyboards, and a Jewish drummer, they eventually decided to call themselves Culture Club. The group recorded demos, which were paid for by EMI Records, but the label was unimpressed and decided not to sign the group.

Virgin Records heard the demos and signed the group in the UK, releasing their albums in Europe, while Epic Records released their albums in the United States and much of the rest of the world since Virgin did not have a US presence at the time. George began sporting a look inspired by Siouxsie Sioux with "heavy make-up and swaggy hair".

The band's debut on Top of the Pops created tabloid headlines, which focused on George's androgynous style of dress and sexual ambiguity. Magazines began to feature George prominently on their covers. Pete Burns , lead singer of the new wave band Dead or Alive , would later claim he was the first to wear braids, big hats, and colourful costumes, but George would cut back with a sharp-tongued remark, "It's not who did it first, it's who did it better.

This gave Culture Club the distinction of being the first group since The Beatles to have three Top Ten hits in America from a debut album. The second single, " Karma Chameleon ", gave the band their biggest hit, peaking at No. The album gave Culture Club the distinction of being the first group in music history to have an album certified diamond in Canada for sales of one million copies in that country.

The band also won the Brit Award for Best Group and the Grammy Award for Best New Artist, where George gave a speech via satellite stating, "Thanks America, you've got style, you've got taste, and you know a good drag queen when you see one. The pair also wrote "Passing Friend" for the Beach Boys' album. Culture Club wrote two songs for the soundtrack to the movie Electric Dreams.

P "Love is Love" became a major hit in Japan. George also collaborated on the song "Electric Dreams", sung by P.

The song was written with Phil Pickett former member of the s band Sailor who had also co-written "Karma Chameleon" and frequently played keyboards for the group. Despite Culture Club's commercial success, there were significant pressures within the band. George was using drugs with money from his new-found fame. George and Moss were also romantically involved with each other, which was unknown to the public and the media at the time.

Their relationship lasted for over four years and was often turbulent, with alleged physical and verbal abuse. Their constant arguments and the pressure to hide the relationship from the public started to take its toll on the band. Although certified platinum in both the UK and the US, it was a commercial and critical disappointment compared to their first two albums.

The album contained the hit single "The War Song", which reached No. Other singles like "Mistake No. George later stated he felt the album experienced a lukewarm reception because of half-hearted material he felt they released due to pressure from Virgin and Epic to have a quick follow-up to Colour by Numbers. The song would become the biggest selling single of all-time in the UK and a huge international hit, raising millions for famine victims in several African nations, particularly Ethiopia.

Due to all the heartache from the break-up of his relationship with Moss, and all the ensuing tension with rest of the band, George turned to something then very much out of character for George relief in drugs. Consequently, he soon developed a self-destructive drug addiction , which in merely four months escalated from marijuana to heroin. By , George had become seriously addicted ; without Moss by his side, his zest for the band was greatly diminished.

The band broke up and George pursued a solo career, having several European hits and a couple of US Top 40 hits, though George would continue to struggle with his drug addiction for several years. George agreed to try some songs with the band again, resulting in recording sessions and producing more than a dozen songs that are still unreleased to this day.

George, however, was more excited about his future projects like his record label, More Protein, and his new acid house project Jesus Loves You. The proposed reunion ended up being cancelled.

Greatest Moments, a compilation album based around the Storytellers performance, was released, and went platinum in UK. Early that year, the band's record company placed an ad for a lead singer to " They're my songs, they're my heart, they're my life. In , Moss stated that the project was shelved. A new picture of the four members was also posted on the band's official website, along with the list of the 11 UK concert dates.

Alison Moyet was to have been a special guest on the tour. The band travelled to Spain for a two-week recording session. The new album, entitled Tribes, was scheduled for release in early on the band's own label Different Man Music via Kobalt Label Services.

At the end of that year the album still hadn't materialised. On 19 July , the band were among the line-up for a two-hour concert in Edinburgh Castle , ahead of the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Hay did not perform with the band because he was in recovery after having knee surgery. In mid-November , two days before the start of their date US and UK tour, Culture Club announced they had to cancel the tour due to George suffering from a serious throat condition.

The cancelled tour would have represented the full original line-up's first tour in 12 years. A television documentary, Boy George and Culture Club: The programme documented the band's reunion in and the making of their new album in Spain, up to the announcement to cancel the tour.
