TOGETHER IN ELECTRIC DREAMS RE-ENTER THE CHARTS

From Music Week; "EDF Energy's use of Together In Electric Dreams in their new TV campaign has resulted in the 1984 number three smash re-entering the chart at number 90 (3,195 sales) for Phil Oakey & Giorgio Moroder. It is also at number 118 (2,338 sales) for Oakey's band, The Human League - which is odd, since they never recorded it. It would appear that the sales thus credited are from the Human League compilation The Greatest Hits, on which the Oakey/Moroder track appears in its original version. That being the case, the two should have been combined, with a number 61 chart placing being earned by the resultant total of 5,533 sales".

VARIOUS RELEASE INFO

Human League manager Simon Watson has revealed a more complex schedule of single choices and album release dates;

 

In Germany, Austria and Switzerland we are switching the second single from 'NLMG' to 'Egomaniac'. This is because we have secured a slot on a major German TV show for a performance of 'Egomaniac'. There will however be no remixes and no video for this single. The TV programme (RTLs Die Ultimate Chart Show) airs on Friday 4th March and the single will be released the same day.

In those three territories the album itself will now be released on Friday 11th March in order to narrow the gap between the TV airing and the album being available.

In the rest of the EU the album will now be released on Monday 21st March in order to narrow the gap between the release in GAS and the rest of the continent.

The album will not be available domestically in the US or on I-Tunes in the US until such time as we have secured a domestic label for the record in that territory. We will however keep this decision under review.

NEW NIGHT PEOPLE REMIX

Got this email from old Human League producer Barry Gilbey;

 

Thought you might be interested in hearing this, its our new remix of The Human League - Night People.


We didn't have access to the full vocals so have done a dub mix, we wanted to make a mix that we would really want to play in clubs. There wasn't a mix out of the original remix package that really did it for us. There were some good mixes but just not what we would play.

We've used it as the opening track on our latest podcast (Podcast 5). If you are interested in hearing the mix the link for the podcasts is here.

2ND SINGLE FROM CREDO CONFIRMED

Wall Of Sound label boss Mark Jones has confirmed that Never Let Me Go will be the second single before the release of new album Credo. Just to warm you up this is what the Electricity Club website had to say about the track as they've reviewd the album; "A marvelous opener which sees an autotuned Susanne Sulley take lead vocals on a piece of dancey electro that sounds like Client gone funky". Judge for yourself by listening to it here. You can also listen to snippets of new tracks Sky and Into the Night.

THE STEEL CITY TOUR EARNING GREAT REVIEWS
The band is half way through the Steel City Tour and the show, and especially The Human League, are earning great press reviews. The Scotman mention "
the band seemed revitalised", while The Independent go to greater lenght and think "The Human League are still such an immaculate blueprint for a pop group of the future, a gauntlet thrown in the face of younger, more cowardly bands, that it actually makes you giggle". Along the same postive lines go Liverpool Echo as they write that "there was no doubt who the night really belonged to" while The Shoreham Herald points out "The Human League took the singing was almost at football stadium levels". You can read the reviews in full here.

CHAOTIC FESTIVAL GIG
Last saturday the band were scheduled to play at Signal Radio's 25th Anniversary Festival in Stoke, but they had to cut their set short and only play 8 songs. Due to incompetence from the organisers the planned time schedule got pushed several hours and while first act Ali Campell played a whole set, both Go West and headliners Human League had to shorten their sets. Has there ever been a festival where the support act played twice as long as the headliner? Read setlist and reviews

At least the cover bears resemblance, even if they are taking the (a) piss! Click on image to "experience".
