After much deliberation, rehearsal and nerves, Steve Ignorant and Paranoid Visions celebrated Steve’s 40 years in the music industry in style with a special show on Aug. 5, 2017, at Blackpool’s wonderful Rebellion Festival, on the 3,000-capacity outdoor stage known as the Casbah.
The set was regarded as a festival highlight and the atmosphere, spirit of celebration and general love in the air took everyone by surprise
There was official material from Crass, mixed with Stratford Mercenaries, Conflict, Dirt, Poison Girls, Flux of Pink Indians and the band’s own stuff nestling together showing a 40-year spread of output Steve has been associated with … or just adored!
Thankfully, somebody bootlegged the entire set and captured the feeling of being there at the show … at the front. So good was the end result, Crass collaborator – and the man behind the Crass album re-masters – volunteered to spend many hours improving the sound.
And so here it is, a limited edition – numbered 1-500 – RED vinyl with insert – “official bootleg”.
