|01Dec1999||Info from Tim Robson:
...a recent British TV appearance of Glenn and Martyn. Saturday night, ITV, there was a program dedicated to Tina Turner at 60, her life, records and life story. There was a brief interview with Glenn and Martyn (with a large mixing desk in the background), about Tinas recording on MQD (V1) and the fact that Martyn did a lot of the production of some of her comeback album. There were also a couple of clips from an 80's music program called the Tube, with Tina singing and Glenn and Martyn, providing backing vocals in the background.
|HOW LIVE IS Details added
"How Live Is" is now available at many stores.
In addition a collection of live pictures has been added.
|14Nov1999||New Release 06Dec1999
Heaven 17: Temptation Best Of Heaven 17 (Audio CD) Virgin CDV2906
|08Nov1999||Info by Drew Radtke :
...have you seen the latest CD on the cover of 'Uncut' magazine? Well it's got the live H17 version of 'Being Boiled' on it. There's also a review of 'How Live Is' and some little snippets of interviews with Glenn G inside. Really nothing major at all, but maybe it should be in the discography. If you see the magazine anywhere it's the issue with an old picture of U2 on it.

|06Oct1999||Gee Morris got her own homepage. (Update 07Mar2001 : page gone :-( )
She is enlisted as background singer for Heaven 17, but I can't find any hint on the record sleeves. Can somebody please enlighten me ?
The new UK Burger King advert was shown on Monday 7 September and in keeping with BK's tradition for using old songs for their adverts, they used none other than 'Temptation' for this advert for the Double Bacon Hamburger for only 99p.
Thanks to Haiminh Le for this info !

|07Jan1998||Some chatter from usenet:
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Jyoti Mishra) (better known as "White Town" with his hit "Your Woman") Jan.98
... Apart from that, I've just done some recording with Glenn. We did a song I wrote back in '85 but never finished cos my voice is too wimpy. Glenn's sung a beautiful vocal and the tune sounds brilliant now. It'll be a joint thing, coming out on my next (White Town) album and probably on one of Glenn's forthcoming solo releases. He played me the songs he's been working on solo and they're beautiful. They're very synthy and atmospheric but in more of a Beloved / Telex kinda way than anything obviously contemporary.
The last time I chatted to Martyn he said something about this new BEF album
but I don't know any details. I know they're doing that series of gigs soon
with Cabaret Voltaire and Kraftwerk. I'll give him a ring and post anything
he says about new recordings,
|26Nov1997||"Trivia" from Christopher Miller
Anyway, I have a bit of trivia for you that you may not know about Martin/Ware. Their old ARP 2600, or roland 100m system, or whatever that big huge-assed box with knobs on it now belongs to Jack Dangers of MEAT BEAT MANIFESTO. Apparently he bought it from some pawn shop or something way back in the mid/late eighties and has been using it ever since. If you've ever seen MBM play out live, then you've seen the box thingie i'm talking about.
