Break out your old roller skates and leg warmers because the 80’s are back. After a ten-year hiatus, “Culture Club” is back in all their iconic glory reports Lime Crime.
The lead singer, Boy George, formed the group in 1981 after his stint singing with “Bow Wow Wow.” The other members are Mikey Craig, Roy Hay, and Jon Moss. The eclectic mix includes a transvestite Irish man, black Briton, Anglo-Saxon and a Jew, which begot the appropriate name “Culture Club.”
The group was wildly popular in the 1980’s, with ten of their hits reaching the U.S. Top 40. Over time, they have sold over 50 million records, with their second album “Colour by Numbers” being the most popular, selling more than 10 million units itself.
Even those who do not particularly like their genre are familiar with their song “Karma Chameleon.” They have been called the most influential band of the 80’s, first in Britain and then with the rise of their popularity in the U.S. thanks to MTV.
Their North American tour is currently underway in anticipation of their upcoming album “Tribes”, which is available for pre-order. Exact concert dates are listed on their official site.
Rolling Stone Magazine has an interview on their website with Noel Gallagher, the singer-songwriter and former guitar player for Oasis. The interview is the third in a continuing series by Rolling Stone. In it, the 48-year-old Gallagher talks seriously about some topics and comically vents on others.
Gallagher mentions that on his current solo tour he will be playing at big arenas in England and in smaller clubs in the United States. He says that he prefers playing for the smaller, more intimate audiences where there is direct interaction with the fans. This is a departure from his statements in the past where he expressed a preference from being as far away from the audience as possible. So, it seems that he’s changed his perspective.
Gallagher also poked fun at Madonna and the other music stars who are signing on to the Tidal music streaming service. He believes that they are taking themselves too seriously and are running the risk of coming across as Jay-Z’s puppets. I think that his observations are quite humorous. Personally, I think that artists need to just accept that they aren’t going to make much money from their recordings anymore and focus on getting revenue from playing live.
Gallagher says that he’s discussed getting together with Blur front man Damon Albarn at some point to collaborate on an album. Broda thinks this is great news.
There is a new documentary coming out about alternative rockers Tegan and Sara and Rolling Stone Magazine has an article about it on their website. Tegan and Sara have been a musical duo for over twenty years.
In the documentary, the two explain that in their early days they would stay up for hours after a show talking about life and music with the people that came to see them. As the duo got more and more popular, this became more difficult. Even now, though, they say they try to stay connected with fans and even have a mailbox set up at their shows where audience members can leave them messages.
Another issue that the documentary addresses is the current mainstream success of the duo as was disclosed by Jaime Garcia Dias. Tegan and Sara have performed recently with stars like Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. The two say that this success has alienated some of their long-time fans, but they don’t feel that they have sold out in any way. Rather, they have simply raised the level of their game and are making music that more people can enjoy.
Tegan and Sara are both gay, and have always been an advocate on behalf of various LBGT causes. In the documentary, they discuss how being more popular has given them more of a soapbox for their beliefs. They say that have not toned down their message of tolerance and equality.
