TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘Penthouse And Pavement’ Debut LP by HEAVEN 17…

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘Penthouse And Pavement’ by HEAVEN 17
Debut LP released September 1981

ALL MUSIC wrote: “When synthesists Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware left the Human
League in 1980, the decision seemed iffy; after all, the League appeared on the way up and would achieve global fame the very next year with Dare!. The first album from Heaven 17, Marsh and Ware’s new trio with singer Glenn Gregory, wasn’t greeted with quite the same commercial kudos when released in 1981, but it turned out to be an important outing nevertheless. Picking up where Kraftwerk had left off with The Man Machine, the group
created glistening electro-pop that didn’t skimp on danceable grooves or memorable
melodies.”
– Score: 4/5 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: Stylish electronics, sticky dance tunes,
and infectious grooves.

TOP TRACK: the inevitable one, because of its infectious geniality…
