Heaven 17 is a British synthpop band originating in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England that was formed in 1980, having much 80s success with their electronic sound. Taking their name from a fictional group mentioned in Anthony Burgess's novel A Clockwork Orange (where 'The Heaven Seventeen' are at number 4 in the charts with 'Inside'), Heaven 17 formed when Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware split from their earlier group, The Human League, and devised the production company British Electric Foundation (B.E.F.).

Frogtoon Music - Album information for Penthouse And Pavement

"Penthouse and Pavement" is the debut album by the English synthpop group "Heaven 17", released in 1981. "(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang" was released as a single, but did not achieve chart success, partly due to a ban by the BBC. The album sold reasonably well, but was not a commercial success on release. It has since been regarded as "an important outing", is included in the book "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die", and was re-released in 2010 in a 3-disc special edition.
