Levellers - Letters From The Underground -2008-
(Rock, Folk, Punk)

From: Brighton, England

The Levellers have been putting out there brand of politically charged upbeat anarcho-Folk Punk since the early 90's. This is there ninth studio album and there are no signs of letting up of their anarchist, political and green views. Kind of a musical mash of The Clash, Pogues, and Flogging Molly. That electric fiddle is awesome!

Levellers - The Cholera Well

Levellers - Behold The Pale Rider

Levellers - A Life Less Ordinary

I really like this band "their" brand is that they will throw anything into the mix and somehow it comes out sounding good. Excellent lyrics and very politically charged. Not many in the US will know where the band's name came from so let me enlighten you. Here is what the actual movement stood for...

The Leveller movement reached its height in the middle of the seventeenth century. Levellers wanted political democracy and the abolition of the English class system. Their enemies included the wealthy classes, of course, but also the leaders of the army. In 1649, Oliver Cromwell imprisoned several Levellers in the Tower of London. These radicals defended their program in the following pamphlet, ( arguing that their ideas were not as extreme as they had been portrayed.
Anyway enjoy the music and get fired up.
