The Levellers are a popular English rock band influenced by punk and traditional English music. They are based in Brighton, England where they were founded in 1988. There are several stories regarding how they got their name; from the Levellers, a radically democratic faction of Oliver Cromwell's New Model Army; as a reference to "The Level", a flat open space near where members of the band used to live in Brighton; or simply, according to guitarist, Simon Friend, a word they chose from a dictionary. Strongly interested and outspoken about green anarchism issues the band have built up a strong and devoted fanbase, despite being nearly universally ignored by mainstream critics. The band have been spokespeople for a number of issues including campaigning against the Criminal Justice Act (and its measures against rave parties) and various anti-capitalist and environmental issues. They continue to tour extensively around Britain and Europe but maintain a mutual dislike with the music press which stems from their early days.

    There's only one way of life
    And that's your own, your own, your own
    My father when I was younger took me up on to the hill
    That looks down on the city smog and above the factory spill
    He said, "Now this is where I come when I wanted to be free"

    It's warm by the river, the weir keeps us clean
    The wood-smoke and cigarettes are all that we need
    Marking the dirt with twigs and simple words spoke
    Kicking the dust so that we can just
    Dance the dance that plays with the fire
