“Being Boiled” the debut release by The Human League was first released on June 30, 1978. Lo-fi electronic releases were almost the norm in ’78, The Normal, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, Thomas Leer et. al. presenting themselves. There was a second release also on Fast Product in August 1982. “Being Boiled” was a premier release and long way from what the Human League were to become circa the album Dare. What’s here is a tune from the upper echelon of synth-pop, a masterpiece that easily ranks alongside Kraftwerk or any electro pioneer.

B-52’s debut album

On July 6, 1979 the planet shook with the release of the eponymous B-52’s debut album. From the celestial opening of Planet Claire to the cheesy corny cover of Petula Clark's, "Downtown" you get almost the perfect pop record. Seriously irreverent, the album in totality is catchy and infectious with a beat that is reminiscent of the 60s surf/beach pop. Everyone has this album. EPIC ! https://www.theb52s.com
