More Information


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.

The band’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 Rubik’s cube, but the revolution started in the Isle of Wight when Mark King, Phil and Boon Gould and the all important keyboard electricity of Mike Lindup joined forces and were soon spotted by inde label Elite then subsequently by label giants Polydor. Over their 30 year career, Level 42 has had numerous top 40 hits including “Something About You,” “World Machine” and “Lessons in Love.”

2010 finds the guys back in the studio, now Joined by Pete Ray Biggin (of Amy Winehouse/Mark Ronson/Incognito fame) on drums, with plans to release new songs to include on a 30th Anniversary Release through Universal to coincide with their tour. For more info on the band, go to
