British Electric Foundation were formed in 1980, the brain child of Martyn Ware (The Human League and Heaven 17) the group showcases a variety of different musical artists performing classic songs with an electronic slant.
‘British Electric Foundation are proud to present a unique and exciting performance at the Rewind Festival featuring legendary artists.’
Martyn Ware has produced and performed Human league, Heaven 17 and British Electric Foundation over a career spanning over 35 years. He has now assembled a stellar line-up featuring the full Heaven 17 band performing songs made famous by the stars themselves and cover versions in the inimitable BEF electronic pop style - featuring Glen Matlock, Claudia Brücken, Heaven 17’s Glenn Gregory, Jaki Graham, Kim Appleby, Joy Divisions Peter Hook, Jilted John, Rozalla, Owen Paul and The Farm’s Peter Hooton.
Jaki Graham is a unique entertainer - her down-to-earth approach to life and compassion for others, combined with a powerful and inspirational voice and visual impact on stage, have made her one of the most appealing and enduring Soul entertainers to emerge from the UK.
First joining a band at the age of 17 and making her debut TV appearance on 'Crackerjack', Jaki was destined for big things. When she was finally given the opportunity to take centre stage, there were no holds barred, as her powerful voice, positive energy and radiance were injected in every one of her performances that people couldn’t help but enjoy.
'Could it Be I’m Falling In Love?' marked a significant collaboration in Jaki’s career, and timeless 80’s classic followed, including 'Round and Around', 'Set Me Free’ and 'The better Part Of Me'.
