article imageBoy George ready to reform Culture Club, works on a new record

By Mathew Wace Peck     Nov 13, 2013 in Entertainment
Boy George has confirmed that he is ready to reform his band, Culture Club, and record new material for the first time in 15 years.
The singer and DJ revealed his intention during an interview with the Mirror.
When asked about the possibility of reforming his band, the 52-year-old replied, "Yes, I'm finally ready for it."
A few years ago, his other former band mates asked him about coming back together, but Boy George didn't feel the time was right.
"I talked a few years ago about a Culture Club reunion," he said. "They wanted me to do it for years but it wasn't right and obviously for five or ten years I was going through other things.
However, the reunion isn't about creating a nostalgia-fest. "It will be a completely new record. There's no point doing it just for nostalgia," George confirmed.
He also revealed that Jon Moss — another member of Culture Club and one-time lover of Boy George — was surprised by his change of heart. "Jon was surprised when I told him I wanted the reunion to happen at last," he told the paper. "But I wanted to do this album for myself first."
Culture Club first hit the music scene in 1981. Boy George was joined by Mikey Craig (bass guitar), Roy Hay (guitar and keyboards) and Jon Moss. Their hit singles included "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?" (see above), "Karma Chamelion", "Time (Clock Of The Heart)", "Church Of The Poison Mind" and "War Song".
Recently, Boy George streamed his new solo album, his first in 18 years This Is What I Do.
Never afraid at speaking out, last month Boy George criticised Eminem for his anti-gay lyrics in Rap God. As reported by Digital Journal 's Layne Weiss, he tweeted, "Fag? Is this really recovery talk or are you running your own program these days? Really unhelpful."
