Level 42
Love Games - top tune

Was down in Devon recently and a yoot put it on a pub jukebox

Roll back the years to Mr King on bass, all wedged up blonde barnets and playing up with the lads - happy days

Starchild is worth a listen too

Re: Level 42
id rather shit in my hands and clap that listen to these guys, ever again±!

There were so many better bands at the time and also who's music stands the test of time in that era than this bland white soul boy stuff

Freez- Southern Freez being a good example

Re: Level 42
Yes Swiss, as I said too, the American Jazz/funk/soul of that era was different class!
Rare groove was just as turgid though.

Re: Level 42
I liked them. I bit poppy I guess. Was a big funk fan in the 80s. But like said the stuff coming from the US was so much better.

I was lucky to see Defunkt live at the Venue New Cross. No you're talking.

Re: Level 42
First band I saw live, in 1986 when I was 15. Great live act and Mark King superb front man. Lovegames, Hot Water, Living it up (when the sun goes down) & Something about You should be right up there in great 80’s stuff.

Re: Level 42
All the 80s US soul and Jazz fusion and acid jazz and rare groove and funk was infinitely better. Even Chicago house was better.

Re: Level 42
I got into them with the first album and then the Early Tapes in 1981. Some of the early stuff up to Standing in the Light is really good. I like the commercial era they had too, but the 80-83 period really stands out for me.

Love Meeting Love, If Paradise Is Free and Why Are You Leaving especially bring back good memories.

Re: Level 42
Acid Jazz was a lot more fun...and genuinely cooler

Level 42 had that vibe on the debut album but quickly lost it

Re: Level 42
Couldn't stand their insipid pop funk.

Re: Level 42
May not be a classic band, but ah happy memories. Gals from Essex particularly liked them as I recall (Sharon et al)
But come on - Cortinas and Capris with furry dice and grandad shirts.
Ah happy memories YES,
classic music - NOT

They were decent up to and including World Machine. And that's all I have to say about that.
