Heaven 17 - Penthouse And Pavement


In September of 1981, Heaven 17 released their debut album, Penthouse And Pavement. It produced five singles, "(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang (U.K. #45), "Play to Win" (U.K. #46), "Penthouse and Pavement" (U.K. #57) and "The Height of the Fighting (He-La-Hu)". The album reached the #14 spot on the U.K. albums chart. The Sheffield, England new wave band formed when Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh split from The Human League. They recruited Glenn Gregory for vocals and the band was born. The band has recorded and performed sporadically since 1988.
