Culture Club In The Land Of The Rising Sun

Dave Rimmer, Smash Hits, 19 July 1984

Culture Club in Japan are very big news INDEED. They're the most popular British pop group. They fill massive stadiums. There are Girl Georges everywhere. Convoys of cars follow the group around. Some even say Boy George "has the power of magic." Dave Rimmer flew to Japan to report on their Far Eastern tour (and even he got asked for his autograph).
