Additional information about this Wham vinyl art.

Wham – The Artist

Wham were an English musical duo formed by school friends George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley in 1981. After three successful albums Wham became one of the most successful pop acts of the 1980s. They made a highly publicised 10-day visit to China, the first by a Western pop group and sold more than 30 million certified records worldwide from 1982 to 1986. George Michael was  keen to create music targeted at a more sophisticated adult market rather than the duo’s primarily teenage audience, and therefore split to continue working as a solo artist.

Club Tropicana – The Song

Club Tropicana is a song by British pop duo Wham, released in 1983 on Innervision Records. It was written by members George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley. The song was a mild departure from Wham!’s previous singles, which had all been motivated by social or political issues. “Club Tropicana”, however, was a satire of the boom for cheap package holidays for younger, single people of a hedonistic nature. It was specifically seen in the UK as a swipe at the very popular Club 18-30 scheme.

The Pinapple – The Shape

The pineapple is a tropical plant with an edible multiple fruit consisting of coalesced berries and the most economically significant plant in the family Bromeliaceae. n 2016, Costa Rica, Brazil, and the Philippines accounted for nearly one-third of the world’s production of pineapples. Pineapples are frequently used in cocktails and often considered a drink synonymous with summer and holidays.
