Steve Ignorant’s Slice Of Life will be playing at Colchester Arts Centre on Thursday 5th April, The Prince Albert in Brighton on Friday 6th April and supporting the Sleaford Mods at AB Brussels on Saturday 7th April.
I was asked to provide a clip of one of our performances. As I obviously can’t film myself I rely on you to do the photos/clips and I am always impressed by the quality of it all. Thank you so much for sharing them.
Here 3 clips from Mark Brown that I found. Thanks Mark, I really appreciate it.
We’re itching to be back on the road again. Less than 3 weeks to go and starting at one of our favourite venues -Colchester Arts Centre in Colchester (Thu 5th April), followed by The Prince Albert in Brighton (Fri 6th April) and we’ll then hop on the ferry to join the Sleaford Mods in Brussel for the AB Spring fest.
If you want a pre-taste than grab yourself the EP Just Another, released by Harbinger Sound from the webshop or get a download.
Playing with Paranoid Visions in Tokyo was certainly special. The people we met could not have been more friendly and helpful. We were looked after from the moment we arrived to when we were on the plane again which was a good thing as nearly all of the writing is in Japanese.
The support bands we played with were fantastic and I absolutely loved listening to them. It’s a shame it’s so expensive for them to come over to Europe as I know they would go down here really well.
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.
Big thank you to David Manning for filming the gig at the Stags Head in Dundalk, Ireland.
I’m really pleased to announce that I’ll be back with Slice Of Life at Rebellion next year . Thank you all for supporting us and coming to see us this year. It was great to see you all. Check out the photos taken by Simon Balaam.
The field next to our house has been ploughed and we’ve lit our first fire. Autumn is on it’s way and the perfect time for working on some new material, setting up gigs for next year and doing our last couple of gigs in the UK before going to Ireland. So hopefully see you around somewhere.
