Heaven 17: Penthouse And Pavement (1981)

"Where the Heaven Seventeen are at number 4 in the charts with Inside."
 - Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange

After Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware departed from The Human League in 1980, they formed Heaven 17 with Glenn Gregory. The first album gets off to a fantastic start with (We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang, a really fantastic electro-pop tune. This record is nowhere near as good as the first two Human League records, but there are moments that I like.

I suppose I should dedicate this track to Donald Trump
