Episode # 33 - In conversation with Heaven 17's Martyn Ware

Playing tracks by

TJ, Heaven 17 and B.E.F. featuring Billie Godfrey.

Multi-million-album-selling producer and a true Synth – pioneer, Martyn Ware, is also a down to earth, plain-speaking gentleman.

The conversation on this POEM episode includes topics such as the music industry, the negatives of digital platforms such as Spotify etc, how to sell records, lecturing on the future of electronic music, the admiration for Vince Clarke and how it was to work with him, to write or not to write his memoirs, the still-not-so-great relationship with once Human League colleague Phil Oakley and news about Heaven 17 and B.E.F. – not to be missed.

I'm a similar age as you Martyn and I think you are spot on with the issues you have raised. Music from the 90s and 00s will never have a long shelf life. The 80s was the golden era in the music industry. As for Simon Cowell the less said the better!

Thank you for this terrific interview. I look forward to purchasing more great music from Heaven 17!
