Being in a “music” mood of sorts today, I did some searching around on the internet to see if my two favorite groups from my teen years, The Human League and Animotion, were out on tour these days. I would love to see these two groups perform.
Imagine my surprise to see that they performed *together* in Las Vegas recently! Hello? Where was my invitation? And to think I still have the letter I received from Astrid Plane back in 1985 in response to a fan letter I had written.
It seems like I never have any luck trying to meet The Human League either. I tried pulling strings back when I was a program director for the radio station, no dice. I had to sit in the audience like everyone else.
The closest I can get right now is this lucky fan’s photo on the internet. Time to crank up the iPod baby.

You know – I adore The Human League. A couple of Christmastimes ago, a friend and I saw Phil Oakey in Kensington High Street and I admit, we did stalk him for a while. But then he went into a Carphone Warehouse, presumably to buy a phone or somesuch and we gave upthe ghost. But it was rather exciting. And a little bit obsessive 😉
