“I can do whatever I like, but the most interesting thing about me is that I’m in the Levellers.” So begins A Curious Life, Dunstan Bruce’s recounting of the history of the 90s indie success story through Jeremy Cunningham, the band’s bassist. A product of Thatcher’s Britain, the Levellers built a fiercely loyal fan base from 1988-1998, achieving phenomenal success before disappearing in a train wreck of drink, drugs and creative drought. Exploring the inner workings of a band that, like Crass and Chumbawamba, were determined to operate differently. Following the band’s story through Cunningham’s art, struggles with alcoholism and drug abuse, and his obsession with Irish and Christian history, this is a portrait of both a fascinating character and a touchstone group. Again in Jeremy’s own words, it’s a ”journey through 25 years of subsidised dysfunctionalism”.

Followed by a live acoustic performance from The Levellers
