The Human League continue to amaze


25 years ago my sister, Jane, and I went to see THL at The Playhouse in Edinburgh. She was 7 months pregnant. I was not. Looking at us today some would suggest the roles might have reversed.

It was a free gig in Falkirk for the Big in Falkirk Festival and attracted at least 5,000 spectators I’d say.

On a lovely Saturday night the entire population of Falkirk appeared to be in attendance and were either steaming drunk or E’d out of their faces. As we’d driven from Edinburgh we were sober.

This slideshow captures the night…and the crowd. It has to be said THL were as good as the day they hit number one. But the highlight for me was when Phil left the girls back stage to perform an outstanding rendition of their finest song; Being Boiled.
