Levellers

Drawing their name from a 17th Century political movement from the English Civil War, Levellers were formed in 1988 by Mark Chadwick and Jeremy Cunningham. Adding Charlie Heather, Jon Sevink and Alan Miles, they released their first EPs in 1989 on their own Hag label. Their first album A Weapon Called the Word was released in 1990, going gold with their following album Levelling the Land going platinum and having the honour of being cited a classic of the early 1990s.
