By David Buckley
Foreword by Martyn Ware
Electric Dreams is the definitive history of the hugely influential bands The Human League and Heaven 17, from Sheffield beginnings to world-renowned synth-pop pioneers. The book draws on first-hand interviews with band members, ex-band members, management, producers, friends and other musicians, including Phil Oakey, Martyn Ware, Ian Marsh, Gary Numan and Martin Rushent.
Electric Dreams will take you back to a time when completely new sounds were being invented, when the possibilities presented by affordable new technology meant that musically inquisitive, but technically untrained, pop fans could make music in the real spirit of punk. This was no three-chord wonder; this was a one-fingered revolution.
