Level 42 @ New Theatre, Oxford
Saturday 11 October 2014, 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Level 42 have relished global success for over thirty years, producing an impressive discography packed with hit tunes in the instantly recognisable sound they’re loved for, and with the release of their latest EP Sirens on the brand new Level 42 Records, they’ve gone right back to their roots with founder member Mike Lindup’s trademark vocals and multi- layered synths, driven as always by Mark King’s thundering bass lines and Pete-Ray Biggin’s jaw-dropping drums, with remixes by the master John Morales.
To date the band and Mark have released 14 studio albums, seven live albums, six compilation albums, had 18 top 40 singles, including ‘Lessons In Love’, ‘Something About You’, ‘Leaving Me Now’, ‘Running in the Family’, and ‘Hot Water’, sold out Wembley Arena for a total of 21 nights and sold in excess of 30 million albums worldwide. In short, they proved to be one of the biggest British bands of the 1980s, and recent reissues as a major format has seen a host of re-masters and releases from Universal Music, Studio Hamburg, and River Records among others. In 2001 Mark King acquired the rights to the name Level 42 and took the band back out on the road again where they continue to win over audiences where their unique sound and virtuosity as instrumentalists remains an inspiration to young players the world over.
