8. Heaven 17
Heaven 17’s lyrics, written during the height of Thatcherism by three left-leaning young men, are perhaps as relevant today as they were back then. The group were formed in the early eighties when on the brink of mainstream success, Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware split from The Human League. Joined by Glenn Gregory on vocals they released their debut album "Penthouse and Pavement" and became one of the best known bands of the eighties, with hits including "Let Me Go"," Come Live With Me" and the seminal "Temptation". The band celebrated the 30th anniversary of "Penthouse and Pavement" in 2011 by touring the album in full, and the following year embarked on a tour of "The Luxury Gap" around the UK and Europe. In 2013, Heaven 17 bring their classy synth-pop sound and lyrical post-modern critique of modern society to Rewind Festival.
