We’ve just received news about the new album by notorious anarchist punk rocker turned lifeboat volunteer Steve Ignorant. The Crass co-founder’s new album, entitled “When..?”, will be launched in Dublin on November 1st followed by a London & worldwide release a week later on November 11th. More details below.
Crass of course are legendary around these parts. Famous for achieving worldwide renown from a communal farm house in Epping (rather than from a major record label) they were also once referred to in the House of Lords and at one stage were contacted by the KGB following their “thatchergate” tapes detailing conspiracy theories about the sinking of the Belgrano during the Falklands war. The band’s logo has been worn by the likes of Angelina Jolie and David Beckham but they split in 1984 and this project marks the first recordings since the mid 1990’s for the band’s Steve Ignorant who officially retired from making new music then.
Soon after his retirement Steve was persuaded to join the Sea Palling voluntary life boat crew after donating £1000 of musical proceeds to them.
Details about the official launch shows, and how to buy tickets, are below:
