The trio were consists of Joseph Hill (lead vocals), Albert Walker (backing vocals) and Kenneth Dayes (backing vocals).
Soon after they came together, they start working with the "Mighty Two" (the producer was Joe Gibbs and engineer Errol Thompson). Culture recorded a set of great singles in which many of it come up on their debut album "Two Sevens Clash". When their success with Gibbs Studio ended, the Culture move on to make a series of albums for Sonia Pottinger (a producer). The group start working with few of the leading musicians of the present which include Sly Dunbar, Ansel Collins, Cedric Brooks and the ever-present percussionist Sticky, and Robbie Shakespeare. The Virgin Records brought out the albums and that helps in distribution which enabled Culture to attain a huge follower outside of Jamaica.
