If you like the Levellers, also check

Oysterband (somewhat more folky and less down-to-earth than the levs,
IMHO) http://www.oysterband.co.uk
New Model Army (even better than the levs, IMVHO)
The Men They Couldn't Hang (somewhere in between).
Skyclad - heavy metal meets folk, with lots of witty lyrics.

Why is it that bands with good lyrics more often happen to have a
violinist? Or is that my taste? 

Someone's stained
Someone's gained
Us or was it them?
