The duo who sparked the synth-pop revolution in Sheffield, England in the late 1970s is considering a reunion.

Former Human League bandmates Phil Oakey and Martyn Ware haven’t worked together for 30 years - but they’re planning a get-together in the studio.

Don’t You Want Me singer Oakey tells, “I’ve been in contact with Martyn Ware recently but it wouldn’t be a Human League collaboration because he can’t be part of the Human League again.

“We could try to work together again and see if we’re of the same mind. I might be interested to kick some ideas around with Martyn and see what’s happening.”

Ware quit the Human League before the band became one of Britain’s biggest groups, and formed Heaven 17 with Glenn Gregory and Ian Craig-Marsh.
