Biografia

Em 1977, na cidade inglesa de Sheffield, dois jovens programadores de computadores, Martyn Ware e Ian Craig Marsh, resolveram montar uma banda, inspirados no Kraftwerk. Após alguns meses de economia, compraram um antigo teclado Korg e começaram a estudar o equipamento, já que não entendiam nada de música.

Assim, nasceram o The Dead Daughters, que ensaiaram para uma festa de 21 anos de um amigo. Nessa época, o cantor era Adi Newton. O grupo, aliás, havia mudado de nome: The Future. Mas o futuro deles continuava opaco…

O Future chegou a gravar algumas demos e até viajaram para Londres, na esperança de conseguirem algum contrato.

Ninguém gostou muito do som do grupo, especialmente pela falta de guitarras no som e Adi acabou pulando fora. Posteriormente ele formaria o Clock DVA. E aí apareceu o homem que iria mudar o rumo da banda: Phil Oakey.

Oakey também não tinha muita experiência musical - era enfermeiro. Jamais tinha pisado num palco ou testado sua voz, mas Martyn achou que ele teria grandes chances, pois tinha um belo corte de cabelo e se vestia muito bem.
Oakey já conhecia o The Future e acabou aceitando o convite. O problema é que eles não tinham mais grana para investir em equipamentos, a não ser um saxofone de Oakey.

Tudo começou quando Phil ouviu uma melodia e dela escreveu uma letra que acabou resultando no primeiro compacto, Being Boiled. Nessa altura, eles já eram The Human League, nome tirado de um jogo de ficção-científica chamado Star Force. “Being Boled” apareceu na primeira demo gravado pela banda, junto com “Circus of Death” e “Toyota City.”

    'Romantic?' is an overlooked album. Not far off their 80's calibre.

    the narcotic that forges their union is a substance known only to one. to the clown it is known as dominion, it's a secret that he'll give to none. the drug which gives the clown power means the circus can never be stopped. and his dream can go on unhindered till the last human being has dropped.

    Yeah cos then you'd have had him!? :P Not a huge fan of Human League. They had several good tracks and the rest were pretty bad IMHO. Very repetitive sound, they seem to use the same formula for each track. Once you've heard one - you've heard them all! Scrobbling their albums to my profile is painful but I'm a perfectionist...

    I'd have FUCKED Phil Oakey into a COMA back in the "early days"!!!.... He was soooo fucking GORGEOUS!!!.... I had been "hoping" that he was an "out of the closet gay man" ( like "Marc Almond" for instance... ) Allegedly, he says he's not.... ( sure, Phil.... )

    BoobyNoobie, "Together In Electric Dreams" is a song by Giorgio Moroder and Philip Oakey, from the "Electric Dreams" movie soundtrack. There was a lot of confusion over the song, since the Human League performs it live and it has been released on the Human League "greatest hits" compilations. But it was just Philip. This soundtrack was also the source for Culture Club's hit "Love Is Love".

    @MusiQ3985, "These Are the Days" is one of their greatest tracks and certainly their best since 1986. Discuss.

    @BoobyNoobie: No, it isn't. It is however included on several of their Greatest Hits compilations. & They do often perform it live in a slightly altered version, with Joanne and Susan doing the backing vocals.

    Fuck the haters of Dare! It's more listenable than Travelogue (better production & songs). The success of Dare! made The Human League pop stars which was the whole point of The Human League. Travelogue is a great album, don't get me wrong, but Dare! is the full realization of the The Human Leagues ideas, both musical and conceptual. Travelogue is just the blueprint. So all Dare haters just back off. Without Dare! The Human League would just be an quirky electronic band only popular with hipsters & snobs.
