Throughout the 80s, The Human League were a permanent fixture on the New Zealand album & single charts. They held 6 x New Zealand Top 20 singles with their well known hits '(Keep Feeling) Fascination', 'Human', 'Love Action' & 'Don’t You Want Me'. Their 1981 breakthrough album, Dare was a #1 hit on the NZ album chart, and remained there for 40 consecutive weeks helping them become firm nightclub favourites during an exciting time of musical change.

Formed in the English city of Sheffield in 1977, The Human League were early pioneers of the British synth-pop movement, earning street cred within the art-pop scene of the late 70s. They signed to Virgin Records in 1979, the same year David Bowie described them as "the sound of the future”, and he was bang on.

The group continued to innovate and expand with Sulley and Catherall joining the band at the end of 1980. They had a worldwide smash with their third album Dare, which contained four hit singles including 'Don't You Want Me'.

In a career spanning nine studio albums and 20 million album sales, their songs are still sampled and played across dance floors worldwide and their live reputation grows with each passing year.
