Level 42 – The Artist
Level 42 are an English Jazz Funk band formed on the Isle of Wight in 1979. The original band was made up of Mark King (bass guitar, percussion), Mark Lindup (keyboards, percussion), Boon Gould (guitar, saxophone) and Phil Gould (drums). Mark King studied the thumb-slap bass guitar technique and developed his own take on the style which became a hall mark of the band. Initially a jazz funk fusion instrumental band they quickly developed their style adding vocals and became very popular in the 70s and 80s. The name of the band is a reference to the novel The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, in which “42” is the answer to “the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.” After much success as a live and studio band in the 1980s, Level 42’s commercial profile diminished during the early 1990s following a series of personnel changes and musical shifts. After disbanding in 1994, the band reformed in 2001.
