Heaven 17 – Who’ll Stop The Rain (US Promo 12″)


A band you may know from the 1980’s.

To promote their debut album release in America

This features the amazing and rare dub version by American, Chris Nelson, bringing that amazing synth bassline ( Roland TB303 ?) to its true funky potential, amazing. This was 1982!!!

A bonus track is a rather disappointing and short remix of an early album track “Height Of The Fighting”, a tribute to 70’s American Cop Shows maybe?
