Levellers tour dates and video project…

Levellers having recently released their ‘Static On The Airwaves’ have now embarked on a project to record a video to compliment each album track.

The band have just made available the video to ‘Raft Of The Medusa’ – the clip was filmed in August 2012at the 10th Anniversary of The Levellers’ own Beautiful Days Festival,

The song re-tells the true story of the aftermath of the running aground of French Naval frigate, the Méduse, as immortalised by the Théodore Géricault’s great romanticist painting of the same name.

At least 147 people were set adrift on a hurriedly constructed raft; all but 15 died in the 13 days before their rescue, and those who survived endured starvation, dehydration, cannibalism and madness.

The Levellers will embark on a full UK tour in November – Citizen Fish have been confirmed as support for the entire tour.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
