REWIND: Levellers - 'Fantasy'

This week on RW/FF is Levellers week. I quite literally cannot describe the power I feel whenever listening to the band's incredible fourth album 'Zeitgeist', from the astonishing 'Forgotten Ground' and the sublimely beautiful of 'Maid Of The River', to the roaring '4am' and the urgent, anthemic 'Leave This Town'. It's an incredible piece of work from start to finish, and although none of the aforementioned gems are present on their new Greatest Hits collection, we are gifted with its four equally superb singles that took the Brighton five piece to a new level. One of them is the hugely inspiring 'Fantasy', a euphoric blast of punk rock and an ultimate reminder that anyone has the power within them to do something special. This one makes me just as nostalgic for the mid 90s as any of the Britpop groups, more so in a lot of cases.



This song can be found found on the new 'Greatest Hits' album, which is available as a 2CD/DVD package, and a 149 track digital box set. Buy yours HEREIn support of the album, the band will embark on a UK tour with support from the brilliant She Makes War, and ska legends The Selector.
