Culture Club signed CDs and vinyl

Culture Club‘s new album Life was issued last week, and the band have today made available some signed CDs and vinyl albums for the first time…

Originally, the only signed item amongst the various bundles and exclusives in the Culture Club official store was a test pressing but there has been a volte-face and now you can order a signed deluxe CD (for £12) or a signed black vinyl LP (for £18). If you want both signed items, go for the bundle option. Just 500 of each format are available.

Life is the band’s first album in almost 20 years and features the original line-up of Boy George, Roy Hay, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss, although the very latest news appears to be that Jon Moss is currently not touring with – and not ‘in’ the band. This might account for only three signatures being visible on the pack-shot above!

These signed editions will ship worldwide (except, for some reason, Germany).

Life

1. God & Love
2. Bad Blood
3. Human Zoo
4. Let Somebody Love You
5. What Does Sorry Mean
6. Runaway Train
7. Resting Bitch Face
8. Different Man
9. Oil & Water
10. More Than Silence
11. Life

Having finally got the album, I did enjoy it. I think it’s a good album but not a great one and not as good as their 80s material. I think the best songs are the newer ones like Bad Blood, God and Love, and What Does Sorry Mean. However, I don’t like how they changed More than Silence and Runaway Train. They were much better in their original versions. And it was a crime to leave off Hard Times and Solid Ground from Tribes. Those two songs are better than anything on this album.

“This page is unavailable in your territory” so Culture Club doesn’t want their music to be sold here ? Well…. don’t bother then.

Teresa Benson

Gutted I missed the signed copies!

David H Richards

What happened to his voice? I Know we all grow older, but yikes…

BillyD

Germany said “Nein” to Culture Club.

Andreas

‘This is what I do’ 2013 was a great album . . .

Marc

It is. We discovered it only last year, and have been playing it regularly since then. A good production and some very good lyrics.

Brian

All gone.

Jon

I have the CD and it’s one of their worst efforts…bland and boring and I hate what they did to More Than Silence.

James

That’s not Jon Moss who posted they hate the album is it? That could explain his absence!

Jon

I am not Jon Moss!

Neil Kelly

Prove it :)

CJ

I’m aware the band has a history that would cause many people to leap to sacked/left/etc. for Jon Moss not being present, but itsn’t it also possible that it may just be a personal issue? none of us is getting younger. He might have a family crisis or a health issue. They seemed to have fine chemistry when I saw them over the summer at Verona, NY.

James

If Jon had a personal or health issue, why the secrecy? They would just issue a statement on explaining that.
George never mentioned his absence in the second leg of the US tour. Also Jon is rehearsing and doing gigs with another band currently so he couldn’t be sick!

Neil Kelly

I’m completely with James!

Ann

Sold out of vinyl too. :/

Stevie B

Jon Moss sacking smacks of a publicity stunt to shift units #cynical.

James

Don’t think Jon Moss is that famous among the general public to make much of a difference. The people that know him are big fans who would have bought the album anyway.

Neil Kelly

Of course it is, during the final 2 days of the chart. It was 9 midweek. I bet it ends up about 20 meaning zero difference. By the way i say this without any idea on publicity for this album Tuesday-Friday it could hold a little higher. And i mean a little! Could even be lower. One things for sure Jon Moss’ barely-mentioned departure won’t be making more than 100 copies difference

Neil Kelly

Scrub that just realised it’s after chart-time. If my previous comment and this get added in order it’ll make sense. The album charted at a highly respectable UK number 12! Tronced their last effort from 1999

JohnToll

68 signed vinyl left

Mr John Lloyd

49 left as of 16:49 – these are shifting!

Frank Bruce

Life has some new classic songs on there, there is also a few songs the have a really good funky vibe and I know in time they will become classic Culture Club songs. There are also a few songs on here that will take time to grow on me. George’s voice is different now but this album is still very much worth buying. Where can you buy a signed CD signed by a living legend? On the link above. Not sure what the story is with Jon Moss but if he has gone then that is a shame, as for the name change to Boy George & Culture Club, probably a bit to do with his ego and partly because he’s more high profile these days

Neil Kelly

Official line is they replaced him a few years back. I thought like you and agreed with Paul on this topic but i have to say BG has a point… The new band name may shift more copies. UK number 12 would surely seem to confirm this. Culture Club’s 1999 effort reached the dizzy heights on UK number 64…

Darren Howard

Now sold out on their website.

CW

No Jon signatures on this recent lot I see ! Guess it shifts some units though. Voice sounds a bit shot sadly

Chris

Anyone have any idea why they albums now by Boy George & Culture Club ? ego thing or marketing? was it ever addressed?

gb

I was confused too – then read in the recent classic pop interview he said it was because people kept on asking ‘is it boy George singing with the band … the unsurity from when they got a new singer a few years back

emmanuel

According to Boy George, his name is on it just because Culture Club used different singers on stage years before and he wanted to make sure for fans that the original singer was really present on this record

Stevie B

I think Boy George has a solo album up his sleeve and those excellent tracks ‘missing’ from this new album will appear on that. This release smacks of ‘contractual obligations’. Once this release has been flogged to death it’ll be sayonara (Boy George &) Culture Club.

Michael

Had a listen on Amazon. I can hear that some of the songs good. But the voice is not unfortunately. So I am gonna pass.

Matt S

I purchased, although the news of Jon not signing being in the band is a bit disappointing. Shipping to the US was ~$10.

JackC

Anyone who has heard Tribes will find Life to be a missed opportunity. Superior Tribes tracks like Hard Times, Moody Monday and Solid Ground are omitted for tuneless drivel like God and Love, Life and Resting Bitch Face.

Chris

what happened to Tribes anyway? was it released at all?

Teresa Benson

I loved this Album, I have listened to tribes and it’s not as good in my view and people saying his voice is shot…. I think he sounds good on this Album….It’s my second favourite Culture Club Album after Colour By Numbers.

Neil Kelly

Purchased. Literally just heard the news on Moss myself. ‘Pushed’ / ‘left’ / ‘sacked’ but which is correct? This band are a nightmare. The new album is OK. Number 9 midweek will tronce the number 64 placing of 1999’s ‘Don’t mind if i do’ which actually had the hit single. Shows how much times have changed! I predict number chart placing of about 20 come Friday. BTW all, this CD is 15 of your quids here in the UK as delivery is £3

Neil Kelly

Lol i can gaurantee Paul, it wasn’t a dig or aimed at you i merely thought i’d give everyone the heads up on UK price.
Number 12 is it then.
And yes i see others have commented on the name which originally i agreed with you on. I saw a live video with BG via some media (Twitter possibly?) and the band name question was asked via a member of public and put to him by the interviewer (i’m sure the question was green-lit before the stream started). His reply was indeed relating to the replacement from some years back. I also agree with your new stance that it’s very understandable. Happy to admit i was wrong and judging by the chart position, the new name suits!

george glazener

Ewww…..now you’ve gone too far Paul….LOL

Frank

Instant purchase! I was holding off for a yellow copy for the longest time, but this is even better! Thanks for the heads up Paul!
