Storyline

Borne out of the anarcho-squatting free-festival scene of the eighties the Levellers have survived over 25 years of music press vitriol, drink and drug addictions as well as many barren years in the wilderness. But the band had seven consecutive gold albums throughout the 90s, sold out their own festival for the last ten years and run their own creative centre, the Metway. Via the eccentric artist, archivist, whiskey loving bassist Jeremy Cunningham we are taken on a journey; how the band rose to fame and how they survived. A potted history of 25 years of subsidised dysfunctionalism. An uplifting tale of battling demons, that reminds us that behind every band there is always a story of struggle for expression, acceptance and survival. Written by Anonymous

Extraordinary Rockumentary (but not as we know it)
22 October 2014 | by mrpetersherry1See all my reviews

This is a brilliant rockumentary that is a joy to watch whether you are a fan of The Levellers or not. This is a Rockumentary but not as we know it. While the focus is very much on The Levellers it is bass player Jeremy's parents who steal this movie and add a human element not usually seen in band docos. The stories they tell are wonderful.

The love that has gone into making this film and the stories contained within left me feeling weepy with joy. This is a real privilege to be invited into the world of The Levellers and the fact I got to see the world premier with the band performing afterwards was the icing on the cake. You might need the bands new Greatest Hits release with accompanying videos to satisfy you if the band doesn't happen to be available (right now).
