Culture vultures

Oh BOY... you KNOW you're old when one of your favourite bands has a reunion and all the band members look like grandfathers and lao ah-pek's.... *hangs head*

Last July, the band replaced Boy George (who's been a naughty boy) with SAM - a nubile young 29 yr-old (who could also pass off as a woman actually). Wonder who's climbing into bed with him.. hmmmm... ;-)

Apparently, the band is furious with Boy George for singularly accepting a classic song-writing award at the Q Music Awards for "Karma Chameleon" - a song that ALL the original band members wrote together. AND for also criticising their new lead singer SAM.

You can listen to some of their favourite songs here: Culture Club on myspace

A couple of videos of the NEW Culture Club:
Mikey Craig, Jon Moss, Phil Pickett and INTRODUCING... SAM

So what do you think of Sam? Does it look like the band is looking for someone who looks like the 'old' Boy George? He sure doesn't sound the same...

Anyway, they will be going on their CUlture Club Reborn tour which kicks off in Manchester on 07Dec2006.

I watched the video but I don't know if it's nostalgia or what, but I still prefer Boy George (even though he always sounds FLAT!) I think he needs to be tuned up (like a guitar) because he never quite hits all his notes correctly. LOL... But still, I loved their songs and their MTV's especially the old ones. Those were the days when we used to borrow VHS or Betamax (these got phased out when it lost to VHS) tapes and watched MTV's of Culture Club, Eurythmics, Duran Duran and Thompson Twins on Top of the Pops! What memories...

And NOW... THIS(!) is the Culture Club that I remember!
