21Apr2004 See fan cover suggestions for "Before/After" here


First artwork of "Before/After" showed up. Thanks to John for his mail, but we both can't prove if it is a fake or real !

29Apr2004: Dave Richard adds: this was the original design, not certian if still being used....

Haiminh adds : ... Read through my conversation with Martyn on the 2003 News page about Heaven 17 album cover artwork; where he says that the Before and After artwork is based on September 11 and is designed by Malcolm Garrett (a respected British graphic designer, also repsonsible for various Heaven 17 single covers). I'll let you make up your own minds...

For an example of Garrett's work see

As it is most probably related : the official heaven 17 site is going to show up sooner or later : Thanks to N.J. !

24Mar2004 On Tuesday 27th April, "Nuromantic" the popular synthpop-retro-electro night will be hosting the Northern launch party for the DVD release of "Made In Sheffield". The film, as you may well know, is a documentary that charts the evolution of Sheffield's music scene between 1977 and 1982 and includes exclusive footage of The Human League, Cabaret Voltaire, ABC, Heaven 17, and others. Having already enjoyed a successful video release, the film gains a DVD release in April, and the makers will be hosting both a Sheffield and a London launch party.

The Sheffield event will see special guest bands including Kings Have Long Arms and Starbase 109, performing live, plus very special guest DJs (including Steve Singleton (ABC), Nigel Humberstone (In The Nursery), and others tbc. All this, plus the usual full night of synthpop fun and frolics, and even a Sheffield synthpop star or three.... all at the usual Nuromantic venue, The Casbah.

This WILL be a rather super night for fans of the Sheffield synth scene then and now. Open to the public, doors open at 9pm, with a close at around 2am. There will be a door charge only to those who cannot convincigly claim to be (or have been) a Sheffield popstar.

13Jan2004 Mail from Michael A. Jones

Dear Thomas,
I don't normally watch Home Box Office's Sex in the City, but did while in a hotel last week. I believe that the episode was the first for the new season, but I cannot be sure. I am sure that the newspapers have been plugging the show because this is the last season. (In case you do not know, HBO's Sex in the City is a cable drama/comedy that follows the exploits of four women in New York.)

Regardless, I was happy to see that Sunrise/Sunset by Honeyroot was used on the show. I didn't watch the whole thing, so I missed the credits, but I assume that they were credited. As this is Heaven 17 related, I thought I'd send it along.

Happy new year. Mike

11Jan2004 A mail from 2003 which I hadn't mentioned yet:

Mail from Sean 23Nov2003:

...just a quick note to let you know I've done a quick bootleg mix today, mixing "Let Me Go" with Madonna's vocals from "Frozen". If you'd like to hear it, but it was done very quickly!

Best wishes, Sean
