Dare

Off to see The Human League this weekend in London. They're performing all of their 1981 album Dare which for those of us of an, um, certain age, remains a seminal work. I can type words like seminal but I'd never say them in real life.

A full gig report, as always, will be blogged in due course. In the meantime, remind yourself how bloody good Human League were by having a look at Empire State Human, Sound of the Crowd and then treat yourself to A Crow and a Baby. Ok, I know only one of those is from Dare but still, all cracking stuff.

Gotta go now and find that black eye liner pencil. I think I left it somewhere back in 1981.

I'll be very disappointed if I learn that Mr Oakey has gone and got himself a sensible haircut...

I agree, "Dare" is a landmark album. I too am of a similar age and remember it well. The assymetric fringes. The ropey singing. The abundance of synths...
