There seems no stopping them. Brighton’s most famous sons The Levellers are celebrating 30 years in the business with a UK tour, aptly entitled One Way of Life, named after their anthemic paean ‘One Way’.
They’ll be playing in their hometown on 22nd November, with a show at the Brighton Dome. It was on 8th March, 1988, that the band played their first ever gig, at The Basement (the legendary Brighton Polytechnic Students Union bar) on Grand Parade. Four of the current line-up were on-stage that day (Mark Chadwick, Jeremy Cunningham, Charlie Heather, Jon Sevink).
Earlier this year they released We The Collective, featuring acoustic re-recordings of many of the band’s greatest hits, plus two new songs, ‘Shame’ and ‘Drug Bust McGee’. It was their highest playing album for two decades, and showed the band can still hit the heights after all these years.
