Level 42 Bio Top
Level 42 took the 80s by storm with their brand of bass driven jazz funk that came from the underground soul scene of wedge hair cuts, pegged trousers, sharp shoes and soul patrols. They led a band of UK ‘funksters’ and soul acts that for a time changed the face of the street scene in Britain , dovetailing with the start of the commercial New Romantic movement , Two Tone and the dying embers of punk.
Level 42’s funk influenced riffs became synonymous with the 80s as much a part of the decade’s culture as shoulder pads, puffed hair, red braces and the rubiks cube. Their success in record and ticket sales, chart positions and awards is only half the story, the band left a legacy amongst a generation of 70s teenagers who had been bought up on US funk and disco that saw there was life on the UK scene with home grown acts; their music has been regularly remixed and they continue to have their bass lines and keyboard melodies interpreted by present day acts.
There hits include Running In The Family, Lessons In Love, Leaving Me Now, Hot Water & Something About You.
