This untitled/eponymous album was the third full-length release by Brighton-based folk punk band The Levellers. The record charted at number two in the British album charts and contained the singles "Belaruse", "This Garden" and "Julie".

Track listing[edit]

  • All band members are given writer's credits on all the tracks apart from "Dirty Davey," which is credited to Nick Burbridge (of McDermott's 2 Hours), and "The Flowers of the Forest/The Crags of Stirling," which are traditional arrangements. The re-release of the album in 2007 contains a cover of 'Subvert' by Zounds, (a rare opportunity to hear the Levellers playing ska-punk) and a cover of The Clash's "English Civil War."
