Following the success of Heaven 17’s Penthouse and Pavement 30th Anniversary Tour, the British Electric Foundation is proud to present ‘Music of Quality and Distinction Live’; a two day festival at London’s prestigious Roundhouse venue celebrating 30 years of seminal electronic music and unique collaborations.

Over the last three decades, B.E.F.’s work has achieved a cult status and universal acclaim. Their 1981 debut album Music For Stowaways was recently hailed by Uncut magazine as one of the “50 Greatest Lost Albums of All Time.”

The two day festival will feature a major concert each night. Friday 14th October will include the world premiere of Heaven 17’s 1983 album The Luxury Gap performed for the first time. The album originally went to #4 in the UK Album chart and scored the band four hit singles - Let Me Go, Temptation, Come Live With Me, and Crushed by the Wheels of Industry.

The concert will be performed live in 3D sound - the latest state-of-the-art immersive audio experience, using 3D soundscape composition techniques pioneered by Martyn Ware and Vince Clarkes’ Illustrious Company.

The Luxury Gap (1983)
1. Crushed by the Wheels of Industry
2. Who’ll Stop The Rain
3. Let Me Go
4. Key to the World
5. Temptation
6. Come Live With Me
7. Lady Ice and Mr Hex
8. We Live So Fast
9. The Best Kept Secret
