Additional information about this Heaven 17 vinyl art.
Heaven 17 – The Artist
Heaven 17 are an English new wave and synth-pop band that formed in Sheffield in 1980. The band were a trio for most of their career, composed of Martyn Ware (keyboards), Ian Craig Marsh (keyboards) (both previously of the Human League) and Glenn Gregory (vocals). Although most of the band’s music was recorded in the 1980s, they have occasionally reformed to record and perform, playing their first ever live concerts in 1997. Marsh left the band in 2007 and Ware and Gregory continued to perform as Heaven 17.
Let Me Go! – The Song
Let Me Go! is a song written and recorded by the English Syth-pop band Heaven 17. It was a single taken from their second album, ‘Luxury Gap’. “Let Me go!” was a club hit that features Glenn Gregory’s moody, dramatic lead above a percolating vocal and synth arrangement. Thanks to its popularity in clubs, “Let Me Go!” received considerable airplay at the time of its release and was popular both in the US and the UK. It was one of the first commercial releases to feature the Roland TB-303, a bass synthesiser which later played a pivotal role in the later acid house movement.
The Padlock – The Shape
Modelled into a modern padlock. Padlocks are portable locks with a shackle that may be passed through an opening (such as a chain link, or hasp staple) to prevent use, theft, vandalism or harm. A padlock is composed of a body, shackle, and locking mechanism. The typical shackle is a “U” shaped loop of metal (round or square in cross-section) that encompasses what is being secured by the padlock (e.g., chain link or hasp). Generally, most padlock shackles either swing away (typical of older padlocks) or slide out of the padlock body when in the unlocked position. Less common designs include a straight, circular, or flexible (cable) shackle.
