The Story of the Levellers and 25 Years of “Subsidised Dysfunctionality”.
Despite over 25 years of rock ‘n’ roll excess and music press vitriol, the Levellers are still alive...and still here.
In Dunstan Bruce’s fascinating film ‘A Curious Life’; Jeremy Cunningham, the eccentric artist, archivist and whiskey loving bassist of the Levellers takes us on an often hilarious journey; exploring how the band rose to fame – from headlining Glastonbury and the plethora of gold and platinum albums to the depths of drug-fuelled despair to ultimately surviving and thriving in the present day.
This uplifting tale reminds us that behind every band there is always a story of struggle for expression, acceptance and survival; and that by battling their demons, against all the odds, the Levellers landed in the 21st Century completely self sufficient – releasing their own records, running their own studio (The Metway in Brighton) and staging their own ‘Beautiful Days’ festival since 2003: without the need of any corporate sponsorship.
This film destroys those long -held preconceptions of the Levellers and forces you to reassess the band because the Levellers are clearly one of the original DIY bands and their unique way of working is evidence of that.
