British Electric Foundation is Martyn Ware's production alias, created after his departure from the Human League and just before the formation of Heaven 17. The legendary Music for Stowaways cassette and the two Music of Quality & Distinction albums (vol 1 1981, vol 2 1992) have become cult releases, featuring pioneering collaborations with artists including Tina Turner, Sandie Shaw, Erasure, Terence Trent D'Arby amongst many others. Following the critically acclaimed debut live performance by B.E.F. at London's Roundhouse last October, Martyn has now finished mixing Music of Quality & Distinction Vol. 3 - Dark . This time the concept of the album is dark interpretations of originally upbeat songs. Recording has now been completed featuring contributions from Boy George, Sandie Shaw, Kim Wilde, Green Gartside (Scritti Politti), Andy Bell (Erasure), Shingai Shinowa (The Noisettes), Sarah Jane Morris, together with Glenn Gregory from Heaven 17 and contemporary artists Kate Jackson, Polly Scattergood, David J Roch, Billie Godfrey, Max Pokrovsky and Kelly Barnes.
