VERY LAST COPIES…VERY LAST COPIES…VERY LAST COPIES…VERY LAST COPIES…VERY LAST COPIES…VERY LAST COPIES…VERY LAST COPIES…VERY LAST COPIES…
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.
In 2019 Slice Of Life toured with their hugely successful new album DON’T TURN AWAY which offers a collection of impassioned, emotionally literate, heartfelt songs that explore the themes of personal frailties, self-doubt and mental resilience alongside wider concerns of resistance and righteous rebellion.
During that tour they played at Ramsgate Music Hall, an intimate venue with a capacity of 140. It is one of the best sounding small venues in the country, run by passionate people and a joy to perform there. The set was recorded and when you listen to it you are transferred back to that night. You can taste the atmosphere as the sound is exceptional.
This is their second live album ‘Live at Ramsgate Music Hall 2019’ and another collector’s item as it is an one-off pressing of just 300 copies.
The front and back sleeve are somewhat poignant – In his childhood Steve spent many a happy holiday at Ramsgate with his family. These personal photographs taken in the sixties will strike a chord with many people.
