Heaven 17 are an English synthpop band originating from Sheffield in the early 1980s. The trio comprises Martyn Ware (keyboards), Ian Craig Marsh (keyboards) (both previously with The Human League) and Glenn Gregory (vocals). Although most of the band's output came out in the 1980s, they have occasionally reformed to record and perform since then, playing their first ever live gigs in 1997.
Taking their name from a fictional pop group mentioned in Anthony Burgess's novel, A Clockwork Orange, Heaven 17 formed when Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware split from their earlier group, The Human League, and formed the production company British Electric Foundation (BEF).
The Luxury Gap is the second album by Sheffield band Heaven 17. It is their biggest selling album, peaking at number 4 in the UK charts and was certified Platinum (300,000 copies sold) by the BPI in 1984.
In contrast to their debut album, Penthouse and Pavement, the singles charted strongly, especially "Temptation" which reached number 2 in the singles chart and was the 32nd biggest selling single of 1983. Other hits included "Come Live With Me" (UK#5) and "Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry" (UK#17).
