Steve Ignorant’s Slice Of Life – Copymaster
Having cut his punk teeth in Crass, Steve Ignorant’s Slice Of Life – allows for the more contemplative side of Steve’s song-writing to reveal itself. 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 retains the emotional impact and compassion that has long distinguished Steve’s work.
The band’s popularity has rocketed over the last couple of years which resulted in many new fans and rekindled the interest of many an older punk rocker.
