News
There is a new single, Designed Heaven (30/8/96), and a new album, Bigger Than America (20/9/96).
Why not review them for me - being here in Australia I'm not likely to hear it for quite a while

Information from a couple of sources (Thanks The Associate and Si)

From Teletext.

Heaven 17 are back with a new single, Designing Heaven, remixed by synth veteran Giorgio Moroder.

But, claims singer Glenn Gregory, Moroder had no idea what a remix was. Says Glenn:" He said he'd be interested in working with us so we sent him some tapes in Los Angeles. He came back and said "What do You want me to do? What's a remix?" He didn't know what it was. The single came back to us and it was exactly the same as our mix!"

Interviewed Heaven 17 on the weekend of the 21st September 1996 for Viva TV.

"H17 sound almost exactly like they did on their first album, they used five analog synths on Bigger than America, three of them mono-fi. The song structures, harmonies and melodies are also very kin to their old material, it's not a remake, though, the songs sound very fresh. Designing Heaven is a mid-tempo song with a syncopated drumbeat, the video was shot in a huge Japanese swimming facility, and Glen collapsed because of the heat in there. The guys wear suits in the video, and Martyn has gained a substantial amount of kgs since the 80s."
