STEVE IGNORANT WITH PARANOID VISIONS 1977220174U LIVE LP
(£20.00 PLUS POSTAGE & PACKAGE – SHIPPING WORLDWIDE)

After much deliberation, rehearsal and nerves… Steve Ignorant and Paranoid Visions decided to celebrate Steve’s 40 years in the music industry with a special show at the wonderful Rebellion Festival, Blackpool, United Kingdom at 5.15pm August 5th 2017 on the 3000 capacity outdoor stage known as the Casbah. The set was regarded as one of the festivals highlights and the atmosphere, spirit of celebration and general love in the air was something that took everyone by surprise….

Included in the set for the first time officially in many years was material from Crass, mixed with Stratford Mercenaries, Conflict, Dirt, Poison Girls, Flux of Pink Indians and the bands own material nestling together showing a 40 year spread of material Steve has been associated with.. or just adored!

As luck would have it, somebody bootlegged the entire set, and as even more luck would have it the sound captured was fantastic and really captured the feeling of being right there at the show… at the front… which is exactly where he was. Even more luck strikes when Crass collaborator and the man behind the re-masters of the Crass albums volunteered to spend many hours improving the sound.

And so here it is…. a limited edition, numbered 1 – 500, RED vinyl with insert and download “official bootleg” release

track listing is…

Slice Of Life in Ireland 20-22nd October

We were all looking forward to going back to Ireland again after the warm welcome we had last year when we went on the ferry and Carol drove us around in her van. As we didn’t fancy getting up at 3 am to drive to the ferry we decided this time that flying was so much better.

Well …. It took ages for me and Jona to get through security as every single bag got checked thoroughly at Stansted. Carol had a long train journey leaving at 6am before arriving at Heathrow. And the Pete’s who are only half an hour away from the airport in Manchester got stuck on the stairs that would lead to the plane for over an hour with loads of other people as the door was broken and could not be opened. So not a relaxing journey for any of us.

But …. once we arrived at Dublin and we were together again and started our gigs it was absolutely brilliant. It didn’t matter that it rained most days and that the sky was grey because it was the people that came to see us that warmed our hearts.

Our first gig at Crane Lane Theatre in Cork.
Thanks Ian for setting this gig up. We loved it.
Chilling.
The next morning -very wet- waiting for the coach to take us back to Dublin. Playing at Fibber Magees that night.
At Fibber Magees. Great to see so many familiar faces. We talked so much that we forgot to take any pics. Great gig.
An amazing night at the Stags Head in Dundalk. Petesy joint us on stage for ‘Band From The Roxy’.

Big thank you to David Manning for filming the gig at the Stags Head in Dundalk, Ireland.

It looks great in 1080!

Between some serious stuff we had a real laugh. Any difficult questions I passed on to Matthew.
Cathi Unsworth kept the conversation going with some great questions.
I just finished one of her books ‘Weirdo’ -a dark compelling read, loved it.
Tim was on top form and DJ for the night.
Afterwards we all had a laugh, chat and drink.

TO THE STARS . . . . . AND BACK

I had no idea when I chased off some skinheads that were having a go at an Asian punk at our Crass gig in Birmingham that I would meet him again at the Louder Than Words Festival in Manchester, November 2014 when I was interviewed by John Robb.

One of the things I mentioned during that interview was that I’d always wanted a tailor made suit and could never afford it. Afterwards Upender came up to me and said: “I’ll make you a suit”. I jumped at the chance and during my visits to his Bolton Mill, where he designs and makes clothing for one of his labels Liberty Freedom, we got to know each other really well and have been close friends ever since.

Upender was born and raised in Birmingham City in the 70s. He would hang out at gigs and clubs as one of the only Asians who would go to punk venues, for him punk was all embracing; linking music, political thought and lifestyle. He, as so many others, would wear clothes not in a ‘conventional’ way but customising old work-wear and Army Surplus clothing (because it was cheap to buy).

He still considers himself to be a “punk” as he still holds the same values and principles.

I’m incredibly grateful and happy to say that Upender has designed a ‘Steve Ignorant’ label that will be in all my T-shirts & hoodies and also designed the latest T-shirts TO THE STARS . . . . . AND BACK.

Keep an eye out for some new traditional designs later in the year.
