Heaven 17 - Endless (1986)

Kolekcja 11-stu singli w wydłużonych wersjach zespołu Heaven 17 to dobry początek na zapoznanie się z ich muzyką dla tych wszystkich, którzy nie mieli do tej pory okazji posłuchać tego trio.

Taking their name from a fictional pop group mentioned in Anthony Burgess's novel, A Clockwork Orange, (where 'The Heaven Seventeen' are at number 4 in the charts with "Inside"), Heaven 17 formed when Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware split from their earlier group, The Human League, and formed the production company British Electric Foundation (BEF).

Heaven 17 were always more than just another 80`s pop band. this Sheffield trio always had the fingers firmly placed on the new world of electronic dance music. This album acts not only as a greatist hits package but it`s non-stop mix of up-tempo tracks clearly shows the influence Heaven 17 had on many of the dance icons that would follow in the years to come. All the H17 hilights are here from the chart storming Temptation to the political and challenging Let`s all build a bomb (here in it`s remixed form).
