Culture Club ‘IT’S A CLONE WAR’ ETS 2561-2




Japan 1985 – Culture Club played concert dates in Japan in June of ’84.

A copy of this title sold for a remarkable $280 in January of 2015

Source: Supposedly recorded at Brendan Byrne Arena, East Rutherford, NJ on 12 November 1984 but this is unconfirmed. As there are songs here from their Waking Up With The House On Fire album, which was released in late October of ’84, the recording seems to come from that tour.

2561 A: The Dive / Unfortunate Thing / I’ll Tumble 4 Ya / The Medal Song / Time
2561 B: Church Of The Poisoned Mind / Do You Really Want To Hurt Me / Mistake No.3 / Karma Chameleon
2562 A: It’s A Miracle / Dangerous Man / Mister Man / Mannequin
2556 B: Miss Me Blind / Hello Goodbye / The War Song / That’s The Way (I’m Only Trying To Help You) / Crime Time

“Track B4 fades out early, and track C1 fades into the middle of the first verse.”


This track listing from a radio broadcast from a concert in Sydney from July of 1984 seems to indicate that the ETS bootleg comes indeed from a later concert):
01. Take Control
02. Mister Man
03. I’ll Tumble 4 Ya

05. Karma Chameleon
06. Black Money

11. Time (Clock of the Heart)

Tracks missing:
