And finally, thanks to the four original members of The Human League for daring to be different, for their splendidly tongue-in-cheek pretentiousness, for that haircut and for all their fabulous words and music... hopefully this site can help bring their brilliance to (and perhaps even inspire) a whole new audience for the 21st century...
