The Hustle – Deep Dive – Mike Lindup on Level 42 (1981)

Our most popular guest ever, Level 42’s Mike Lindup, returns to Deep Dive the band’s debut self-titled album from 1981. We discuss the formation of the band, how the songs and performances came together including classics like “Love Games” and “Starchild,” and how they found their signature sound. Level 42 went on to release several classic albums, but it all started here and remains close to Mike’s heart, as well as the fan’s.

    Great insight into such a great album. Always remember Starchild coming on at the Palais nightclub Nottingham back in the late 80s and freaking out to it on the dance floor.. nice one Mike..

    I really wish they would do this for every studio album they released. Really enjoyed it!
