History

This internationally popular British pop/funk quartet, fronted by Mark King and Mike Lindup, is best known for the hits "Lessons in Love", "Something About You", "The Sun Goes Down (Living It Up)", "Love Games", and "Hot Water". The genre-blending group started out on the Isle of Wight. Though their membership has fluctuated throughout the years, the original and perhaps best-known lineup of Level 42 consisted of Mark King aka "Thunderthumbs" (vocals & bass), Mike Lindup (vocals & keyboards), and brothers Boon Gould (guitar) and Phil Gould (drums).

Their first album, 'Level 42', came out in July 1981. Their first single, "Love Games", became a hit, reaching #38 on the U.K. single charts, and has since been a fan-favorite. While the band didn't quite break into the mainstream completely, this album and its follow-ups featured a spirited new wave sound that drew influence from jazz, funk, and rock.
