Join DJ Massari on Tuesday, September 27th @ 6:30PM to hear an interview with British new wave/synth-pop masters, Heaven 17, ahead of their show at Bimbo's 365 in SF on Sunday, October 2nd.
Taking their name from the Anthony Burgess novel A Clockwork Orange, Heaven 17 grew out of the experimental production outfit the British Electric Foundation, itself an offshoot of the electro-pop group The Human League.
In 1981, Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh left The Human League, recruited vocalist Glenn Gregory and Heaven 17 was born. Their critically acclaimed first album Penthouse and Pavement, featuring their debut single “(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang,” followed the same year and remains a modern classic and just as relevant today.
Heaven 17 heads to North America this fall for their first-ever headlining transatlantic tour celebrating their storied 40-year career.
