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
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.
