Steve Ignorant’s Slice Of Life announce UK tour, and new EP

Former Crass frontman Steve Ignorant has been exploring new musical avenues with his Slice of Life project; having initially released the album ‘Love and a Lamp-post’ back in autumn 2015 to a surprised audience, he swiftly followed this up with the limited edition album Slice Of Life ‘Live at The Forum 2015’.

Slice of Life shocked everyone with their semi-acoustic arrangement of piano, guitar, bass, and Steve’s brutally honest lyrics delivered, at times spat out with unbridled contempt for a system that fails the people it vows to support.

On the way home from the Australian & New Zealand ‘Last Supper Tour’ in 2011; Carol, Pete and Steve Ignorant found themselves stranded due to the Chile ash cloud. During the long night gazing at the lights of Sydney reflecting on life while drinking beers, Slice Of Life was born. They performed their first gig in The Horseshoe Inn at Wellingborough on the 25th October 2013 and never looked back.

Slice of Life have now announced the forthcoming ‘Just Another’ EP which will be released via Harbinger Sound Records , the 3 track EP will feature;

Side A
Stretford Blues

Side B

For the recording Steve gathered together Carol Hodge – Piano, backing vocals, Pete Row – Bass, backing vocals, Pete Wilson – Guitar, with additional backing vocals on Stretford Blues – The Third Degree (Tim Allwood, Nigel Mc Grath, Grahame Taylor); the recording taking place at Ashwood Studios, Norfolk

To support the release Slice of Life have announced the Windswept & Interesting tour which commences on the 7th April at the legendary 100 Club, London – advance tickets for all venues are on sale now.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.


  1. Support acts at the Southampton date are Armoured Flu Unit httpss:// and Kontakta httpss:// a bit of noisey old school before Steve’s more mellow set.
