Heaven 17 was formed in 1980 as a side project of the British Electric Foundation (B.E.F.), a production company created by Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware after their departure from The Human League. With hit singles like "Temptation" and "Let Me Go," Heaven 17 quickly made a name for themselves in the music industry.
The band's name, Heaven 17, was inspired by Stanley Kubrick's movie "A Clockwork Orange," where it is mentioned as one of the hip bands in a record store scene. Their unique sound and catchy tunes have garnered them a dedicated fan base over the years.
