The Human League - Being Boiled


On this date in 1978, The Human League released their debut single, "Being Boiled". It was backed by "Circus Of Death". The B side appeared on their debut album, Reproduction, but it was a re-mixed version. The A side appeared on their second album, Travelogue, but it, too, was a re-mixed version. The original versions of both tracks were added to their debut album when it was re-released on CD. The first two albums were the only albums by the Sheffield, England new wave band that were recorded as a four piece band that included Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh. Those two would leave to form Heaven 17 and the remaining members of The Human League recruited four new members to form a six piece band. Both groups would find success. The Human League are a three piece band now.
