Steve Ignorant – Details About Release Date For New Music From the Anarchist Punk Rocker Turned Lifeboat Volunteer

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:

  • Steve Ignorant with Paranoid Visions: Fibber Magees, Dublin November 1st(
  • Steve Ignorant with Paranoid Visions: The Dome, London,  November 9th (
  • Steve Ignorant with Paranoid Visions: “When…?” LP / CD / DL, November 11th(

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
