On the 1994 Australian release Levitation (2) - Meanwhile Gardens Terry Bickers' vocals had been removed and Steven Ludwin had been brought in as a new singer by the band to replace Terry Bickers after he had left the band. Release notes: Flashback Records release Meanwhile Gardens for the first time in the original planned format. The album has been painstakingly remastered at high resolution and sounds as fresh and new now as it did on the original tapes. From the sticker: "Remastered from the original 1/2" tapes.
Levitation wrote and recorded their second album, ‘Meanwhile Gardens’, in 1993 but it was never released following the departure of frontman, Terry Bickers, announced from the stage during a concert in May that year. Unsuccessful attempts were made by the band to continue on with a new line-up but ultimately the recording was shelved. The album is now being released some 20+ years later with the backing of the original line-up.

Meanwhile Gardens will, as the band always did, split the critics: not so long ago, one veteran journalist advised me they were "the worst band ever". But this less experienced writer begs to differ: Meanwhile Gardens is a sprawling mass of ambition, fury and beauty, and Levitation were better than most. It isn't perfect: no band that partied this hard, that battled rifts in the ranks as bad as theirs, and that was so determined to explore uncharted territory, could hope to convince those who prefer more earthy, earthly delights
Levitation had been recording their second album in early 1993, and were set to release this ambitious and innovative work when the band split and the album was shelved indefinitely. Had this album been released as planned, it would have had a major impact on UK guitar music, standing shoulder to shoulder with the breakthrough albums by the bands mentioned above and pre-dating them by at least a year. Unfortunately, no one apart from a few dedicated fans trading low quality bootlegs online were able even to hear it, and the moment was lost.
