Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

The Human League - The Dignity Of Labour and Flexi Disc

'The Dignity Of Labour' is a 12 inch vinyl record released in 1979. The tracks were written and performed by the The Human League with the line-up Ware, Marsh and Oakey.

The 12 inch was released as the follow-up to their earlier single 'Being Boiled', b/w 'Circus of Death', on Fast Product Records, the label that the band released their early singles.

All four parts are instrumental pieces of electronic music, 'The Dignity of Labour, Pts. 1-4'. These are loosely tied together with a story depicting the construction of the Vostok 1 spacecraft, as well as the launch of the rocket and the pioneering Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin into space. The cover art depicts Gagarin, having just landed on earth, about to receive a medal of honor.

At the time of release, the record contained a free single on Flexidisc which featured a recording of the band members and Bob Last discussing what the Flexidisc should contain, in homage to the film, Dark Star.


A1 The Dignity Of Labour Pt. 1 - The first part has the miners underground in Russia, digging up the coal to make steel

A2 The Dignity Of Labour Pt. 2 - The second part shows gantries being made from the steel, for Yuri Gagarin's spaceship

B1 The Dignity Of Labour Pt. 3 - The third part is an instrumental tribute to Yuri Gagarin

B2 The Dignity Of Labour Pt. 4 3:49
