Levellers tie in film screening with tour
A Curious Life documentary to be followed by acoustic shows
Levellers have announced an acoustic tour that'll see them perform after screenings of their documentary A Curious Life.
Told through the unique perspective of Jeremy Cunningham, the band’s bass player and artist, and directed by former Chumbawamba frontman Dunstan Bruce, the film focuses on the band's success between 1988 and 1998 before they nearly disintegrated in a train wreck of drink, drugs and creative drought.
Bruce says: "A Curious Life is a potted journey through 25 years of subsidised dysfunctionalism; an uplifting tale of battling demons that reminds us that behind every band there is a story of struggle for expression, acceptance and survival."
Each screening of the film will be followed by a full live acoustic gig by the band themselves, who will be performing acoustic arrangements of songs from their recently released Greatest Hits, alongside many other live favourites from throughout their 27 year career.
