An electronic new wave band, The Human League formed in Sheffield in 1977. Dare (1981), the band’s most popular album, yielded the single “Don’t You Want Me”, a No 1 hit in the charts of the UK, US and many other countries. After its UK success, their first single, “Being Boiled”, was re-issued and became a top ten hit at the beginning of 1982. They received the Brit Award for Best British Breakthrough act in 1982. The only constant band member since 1977 is vocalist and songwriter Philip Oakey. Originally an all-male synthesizer based group, The Human League evolved into a commercially successful synthpop band under Oakey’s leadership. Since 1987, the band have essentially been a trio of Oakey and long serving female vocalists Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley, both of whom joined the group in 1980, with various sidemen. Since 1978, The Human League have released nine studio albums, four EPs, 30 singles and several compilation albums. They have had five albums and eight singles in the UK Top 10 and have sold more than 20 million records.
