30Jun2002 Info from Mark Finnigan +Andy Millington

...thought you would like to know about a film called 'Made In Sheffield' which tells the story of the Sheffield music scene in the late 70s and early 80s. Obviously the early Human League are covered and it features interviews with future Heaven 17 member Martyn Ware plus tells the story of the Human League when Martyn and Ian were involved. (...) as well as Cabaret Voltaire, Vice Versa/ABC, 2.3, Artery, etc....Some great archive footage and interviews. Well worth a purchase.

The film will probably not be shown on TV so it is getting a limited video release of a 1000. It can be purchased from the site or from good Sheffield record shops such as Record Collector, Rare & Racey or Fopp.

28Apr2002 Info from David Massey

05Apr2002 Question from Haiminh

...have you had any news regarding a programme in the UK called 'Shoulderpads'? It was dedicated to 80's music (and fashion ot a certain extent), and apparantly featured Heaven 17 and their trademark business suits. I didn't actually see it, but I heard from a friend about it.

03Apr2002 Info from Glenn

Just thought I'd let you know a bit about 'Music Don't Stop' the track that's coming out in Germany on Jive

It's a track that took a strange route to get to be made. Steve bud (H17 manager) passed a backing track on to me that had three different songs on top of it, with a view to me singing one of them. I liked the track but not so much the melodies or lyrics, so decided to start afresh and with the help of Keith Lowndes write a new tune to the backing track. It turned out really well and before you know where you are it's Goldpeople Feat Glenn Gregory.

The tracks really good, it comes out on the 15th of April (Germany). What's strange is that after we wrote a new tune for the track Goldpeople remixed it so I have the only copy of the original tune.

I hope you like it.
Later Glenn

17Mar2002 E-lectric reports of a new project with Glenn Gregory. Release date planned 15Apr2002.
If you can't read German : cooperation with dance-project Goldpeople, style: danceable house
Robert Sommerville had a poll on his website, searching for an additional song to be played live. "SUNSET NOW" was the favourite. He asked Martyn if there's a chance and read Martyn's reply : "It has been in the back of our minds – it’s finding the time to do it, as we’re all involved in outside projects at the moment. Also, we’d like to do more of the new album live."
