Music from the UK – Human League (music from my Youth )
The Human League are an English electronic New Wave band formed in Sheffield in 1977. The band had an early hit with “Being Boiled”, but achieved greater fame after a membership change in 1980. Dare (1981), the band’s most popular album, yielded the single “Don’t You Want Me”, a No. 1 hit in the pop charts of UK, US and many other countries. Other international hits include: “Love Action”, “Open Your Heart”, “Mirror Man”, “Fascination”, “The Lebanon”, “Human” (a US No. 1) and “Tell Me When”. (wikipedia)
“Being Boiled” was first released as a single in 1978 on the Fast Product label, and although failing to chart, was influential amongst other new waveand post-punk artists. In 1987 this version was added as a bonus track to the CD edition of the Reproduction album. Although the Blind Youth fan page claims that on the vinyl edition the song was characterized by a faded ending, the CD reissue has a sudden ending.
