ye early human league


Secondsaside, the Rushent era Human League isn’t my favourite incarnation of the band. To, me that’s the Human League mk. 1 – the one that recorded The Dignity Of Labour Pts. 1-4and The black hit of spaceand a few odd covers (cf. the tracks below), predating the sound of Boards of Canada and other Warp acts by some twenty years – and all the acts that preceded it in the 1973-1978 period, e.g. the Future featuring Adi Newton. For more about the band’s history, check some of the videos here, there and everywhere, or retrieve my review of The Golden Hour Of The Future(Black Melody MELCD4) and accompanying 12″ (Black Melody MEL3, both 2002) in [uzine] 02.24 (U0224.txt in the zip / the reprint here isn’t complete at all) … Or consult any of these sites, obviously:
