A FAN of Level 42 has changed his name to include the pop band's original line-up and all their albums.

Antony Philip Hicks, 23, went the whole hog after first changing his surname to Lindup, after the band member Mike Lindup.

And when Level 42 this week released the single 'Love in a Peaceful World' from their latest album Forever Now, the excitement was just too much for him.

He headed for his solicitor's office and emerged as Ant Level Forty Two The Pursuit Of Accidents The Early Tapes Standing In The Light True Colours A Physical Presence World Machine Running in the Family Running in the Family Platinum Edition Staring At The Sun Level Best Guaranteed The Remixes Forever Now Influences Changes Mark King Mike Lindup Phil Gould Boon Gould Wally Badarou Lindup-Badarou.

Ant, a care assistant, who lives with wife and two daughters at Threemilestones, near Truro, Cornwall, admits: 'Some people might think I am crazy.'

He said Running in the Family was included twice because the original album was re-released and went platinum. He will lengthen his name as Level 42's output continues.
