Biography

Sheffield, United Kingdom

There are, at least, five bands with this name.

1) The band from which The Human League & Clock DVA later emerged. Founded by Ian Craig Marsh, Martyn Ware & Adi Newton in 1977 in Sheffield, UK (see blindYouth.co.uk for further early Human League info.).

2) An indie-pop quartet out of Nashville, TN. http://www.myspace.com/thefutureband

3) A Welsh post-hardcore band Hondo Maclean died and was reborn in the shape of The Future in late 2006/early 2007. The name change reflected a shift in sound and attitude. In May 2008, they announced that they too were to split, but that other projects would be in the pipeline.

4) A Melbourne based, ad-hoc electro group formed by members of The Cat Empire (Ollie McGill - piano/synths) Ambergris (Harry Shaw Reynolds - drums & Dan Marsh - keyboards/synths/samples), True Live (Ivan “Choi” Khatchoyan - drums & Thai Matus - keyboards/synths) and included ‘special’ guests Aaron Light (drums - 12 Tone Diamonds), Carlo Barbaro (saxophones - The Empire Horns/VADA), Nash Lee (Rabid Hawke/12 Tone Diamonds).

5) A New York City based band. Facebook.com/thefuture

    i can't understand why it doesn't use a similar system to IMDb, using numbers or a small symbol to differentiate between bands, and the user could toggle them on or off if they wanted...?

    Ugh, why do pages have to be split? It ruins listings. :( That doesn't look like The Human League! LOL! Anyway, my copy of Golden Hour wasn't working properly. I just had my first listen to the magnificent Cairo for a few years. ^_^
