B.E.F. - Music For Stowaways
The first reissue of seminal early 1980's electronic recordings from the British Electric Foundation (B.E.F.), featuring Heaven 17 / ex-The Human League's Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh, with Adi Newton (Clock DVA) and John Wilson.
Its initial release in March 1981 was a limited edition numbered eight song cassette entitled 'Music for Stowaways', with 'Stowaways' being a reference to the original name for the then-new Sony portable cassette player - later renamed the Walkman - of which B.E.F. were great fans. 'Music for Stowaways' was intended to be listened to on such a device. The cassette was followed by a seven song LP, 'Music For Listening To', which had a slightly different tracklisting, while other B.E.F. music was utilised for B-sides of early singles by Heaven 17.
Available in CD and LP Vinyl formats.
B.E.F. - Music For Stowaways is released Friday, 21st April 2023 and is available to pre-order now.
