Biography by Ed Nimmervoll

Wham! sparked something of a pop revival in the mid-'80s and could arguably be
held responsible for sparking off the boy band trend of the '90s. They were
unashamedly pop, to the point of padding the front of their trousers for
television appearances. At the heart, however, was a string of catchy singalong
singles written by George Michael (born Georgios Kyrriacos Panayiotou in London
to a Greek restauranting family).

George met Wham!'s other half, Andrew Ridgeley, at school in the London suburb
of Bushey, and in 1979 they started performing together as part of the ska-based
band the Executive. When that group dissolved, they wrote songs, made demos, and
rushed into a recording contract with the equally eager independent label
Innervision, scoring an instant hit with "Wham Rap!" (they thought that "wham"
was the sound they made when Michael and Ridgeley performed together). In order
to move to a recording contract with Sony label Epic, Wham! was forced to walk
away from most of the royalties from their debut album, Fantastic. None of that
mattered when their 1984 single, "Wake Me up Before You Go Go," became a
worldwide hit, accompanied by a video of the pair cavorting in their sportswear.
Almost immediately, George Michael started thinking of a solo career, and
released "Careless Whisper," issued in the U.S. under George Michael of Wham!

Wham!'s end came suddenly two years later, in 1985, reputedly when the group's
manager, Simon Napier-Bell (later to manage Take That), decided to sell a share
of his management to a South African entertainment conglomerate. Supposedly, as
part of a stand against South African politics, George Michael immediately
announced Wham!'s breakup. They gave their farewell performance before a sold-
out audience of 72,000 fans at London's Wembley Stadium.

George Michael comfortably stepped straight into his own highly successful solo
performing and recording career. Andrew Ridgeley's post Wham! album, Son of
Albert, sold poorly and produced just one minor hit, "Shake."

Album Review by William Cooper

Fantastic is the misguided 1983 debut release from the U.K. duo Wham. With
Fantastic, George Michael and partner Andrew Ridgeley introduced themselves as
leather jacket-clad, street-smart "rebels." This approach proved wildly popular
in the U.K., where Fantastic was a Top Ten hit, but the album went largely
unnoticed in the States. While Fantastic showcases the ability of the young (20
at the time of the album's release) George Michael to craft engaging, hook-
filled melodies, much of the material on Fantastic suffers from the duo's
pretentious, tough-guy posturing. The empty funk of the U.K. hits "Bad Boys,"
"Young Guns (Go for It)," and the embarrassing "Wham Rap" barely registers, and
Michael's smart-aleck, self-conscious lyrics are often unintentionally
hilarious. Although Michael eventually became well-known as a reasonably
successful emulator of R&B trends, neither these tunes nor Fantastic's
stupefying remake of the Miracles' "Love Machine" give any indication of his
abilities. At best, Fantastic can be viewed as a testament to George Michael's
maturity. "Nothing Looks the Same in the Light" and "Club Tropicana," two of
Fantastic's best tunes, lean toward the lush, adult pop of Michael's later solo
work. Fortunately, Michael and Ridgeley would later ditch the superficial,
leather-jacketed approach for the more sophisticated pop of later Wham releases
like "Everything She Wants" and "Freedom" (both from 1984's Make It Big) and
"The Edge of Heaven" (from 1986's Music From the Edge of Heaven), finding major
U.S. success in the process. Fantastic isn't a good album, but it's oddly
entertaining. It's certainly interesting hearing the difference between the
frothy Fantastic and Michael's later, "serious" solo work like Listen Without
Prejudice and Older. And Fantastic is also good for a few chuckles.
Unfortunately, that probably wasn't George Michael's intention. But even he
might get a good laugh out of it.

BAD BOYS

Song Review by Amy Hanson

The duo’s third, and most popular single yet when it dropped in at #2 on the
British chart in May 1983, ”Bad Boys” was an easy, breezy winner all around,
even if it remained somewhat musically indebted to its predecessor, ”Young Guns
(Go For It”. Toning down the political rhetoric, yet still espousing a less than
pure invitation to the party life, the song rang out to the disenfranchised,
inviting bad boys all across the land to step out of the oppressive family unit
for sex, smokes, fast cars and even faster girls. With backing singers Pepsi &
Shirley trilling out the chorus, and an irresistible battery of “whooo whooos”
thrown in for maddening emphasis, ”Bad Boys” was further dignified by a charming
video that placed both Michael and Ridgeley in the short pants and satchel set,
before pouring them into the tight pants and studded leather that was more in
keeping with their at-the-time sex star images. Musically and visually, it’s a
smart, funny look at youth gone normally wrong.
