Synergy Concerts presents:
Steve Ignorant's Slice of Life (Crass)
Entry Requirements: 18+
Having cut his punk teeth in Crass, Steve Ignorant’s latest project – Slice Of Life – allows for the more contemplative side of his song-writing to reveal itself. Like musical depictions of a British kitchen-sink drama, the songs on the debut album Love and a Lamp-post (Overground Records, 2014) provide vivid vignettes of the everyday. Both personal and universal, Slice of Life present ruminations from the bar stool honed on the late-night walk home. Musically, the band is built on an acoustic arrangement of piano, guitar and bass. Having shed the punk noise that defined Crass, Slice of Life retain the emotional impact and compassion that has long distinguished Steve’s work.
Last year, Slice of Life were writing new songs and touring extensively all over the UK and Europe. They have supported kindred-spirits Sleaford Mods to capacity crowds at venues such as London’s Forum and performed at the Rebellion, Wickerman and Something Else A Bit North festivals. In so doing, the band have won over many new fans and rekindled the interest of many an older punk rocker.
