Now I love the Human League

Now I love the Human League as much as the next man. OK, possibly more than the next man, and perhaps more than is actually healthy. But in this monstrous double spread in the Guardian is buried a hideous and disturbing fact: “dance empire builders Ministry of Sound have acquired their back catalogue in a bid to make it available to young samplers, to challenge the perception of the League as part of the current 1980s nostalgia-kitsch boom, and to reposition them as the British Kraftwerk.” A thousand trance records based around ‘The Black Hit of Space’? Only a God can save us now.
