I think this is the first time I've started a monthly thread. Looking forward to hearing all about the Aussie tour :)

8 days until they reach Adelaide! Let's hope the weather will be kind while they are here! A few days ago it was mid 30's but since then been rainy and much cooler in the teens. As any of you Poms may know if you have any interest in the Cricket ... ;) you may be wishing for more rain :)

Here a couple more Philip Oakey interviews coming to light in advance of the Australian Tour...

I like Culture Club. I incline towards liking Boy George - Philip Oakey

What? :lol:

For years he’s been saying that ‘Boy George killed Pop Music’

And now he ‘inclines towards liking him’? I bet Stig is furious. =D

Personally I incline towards disliking George, I like the music but when he's interviewed he's so full of shit.

I was so excited to see Human League (and my favorite singer, Tiffany) on the beach at the Like Totally 80's Festival in May, even though the band hasn't confirmed it yet. But, it turns out May 12 is the one day in 2018 that I already have another commitment so I won't be able to go even if it really does happen.

It's my cousin's graduation and family reunion, and the reunion part was my idea so I don't think I can skip it.
