The Human League

Biography 2011

The Human League are so credible it’s incredible. In fact, they’re probably more highly regarded in 2011 than they were in 1981 when they released their landmark album Dare!

They’re used to everyone from Madonna to Moby, Pet Shop Boys to Robbie Williams, citing them as an influence. Now the dubstep generation – ... Read more in Amazon's Human League Store

As a huge fan of electro, with a particular fondness for early Human League, I couldn’t help but get just a little excited on learning that an album of previously unreleased demo tracks was now available. My heart beating at double time, I placed my order that same day; I wasn’t disappointed!! Artistic, experimental, melodic and beautifully raw, this album takes us back to a time when electronic music was in its infancy, yet it sounds as spectacular now as when it first poured out of their analogue synths. From the humour of “Daz” the wonder of “Interface” to the bone chilling “Looking For The Black Haired Girls” this album relives a voyage of discovery that would change music forever.
If your only perception of the Human League is of a guy and two girls singing about waitresses in cocktail bars, "don’t" buy this album. However if, like me, you tingle with excitement at the sound of a pile of hardware and circuitry doing what it does best, this album is an absolute must!

A superb journey of electronic music, a must for a appreciators of early Human League. If you like the Human League albums Reproduction and Travelogue then you are in for a magnificient treat. Golden hour of the Future features a blend of different tunes, some are humourous, some are dark, and of all them are great pioneering pieces of early electronic music pushing out the technological boundaries of the day. There a wealth of worthy tracks on this CD and a particularly nice 10 minute long ambient tune to conclude with. The sleeve is not only a great take off of the Being Boiled single sleeve but inside contains a wealth of information on the early days of The Human League.

For lovers of the early work of the Human League (pre Dare) this album is an absolute must. All 20 tracks are previously unreleased and chart the development of the band from the very early days when the group was known as The Future through to Phil Oakey joining and becoming The Human League. The tracks themselves vary in quality due to the original source material, in fact some tracks were provided by fans as the original master tapes are lost! This doesn't detract from the songs at all which are high electronica/keyboard based - some are more experiments in electronic sound rather than conventional songs. The packaging is very inovative too - based on the original packaging for the Human League's Being Boiled single.
If you enjoy Reproduction and Travelogue you'll find The Golden Hour of The Future complements both. Enjoy.

In 1981, Heaven 17 (ex-League members Ian Craig Marsh & Martyn Ware along with Glenn Gregory) released ‘Penthouse & Pavement’. There, buried in the corner of the inner sleeve of the record was an advert – ‘The Future Tapes’ and a claim that the release was imminent…
What, why and where The Future Tapes were has for the last 21 years become myth and folklore amongst many Human League aficionados. A Holy Grail only hinted at by bad bootlegs and the very limited Music for Stowaways cassette.
It was worth the wait. This is primal 70s radical analogue electronics sprinkled throughout with avant-garde adventure (Blank Clocks) and lots of humour (Dance Like A Star, Circus Of Dr. Lao). Inspired more by Dark Star than Dada, Funkadelic than Faust, what you have here is some of the most brilliant tracks ever recorded, rarely heard by a group of (non) musicians that changed the course of pop music (Dare) than the Sex Pistols ever could.
If you buy this, and you really like it (You will!) Check out Cabaret Voltaire’s ‘The Original Sound of Sheffield ‘78-‘82’ as well.
