Today is a special day – Dave King, who designed the Crass symbol, left us last year and today is his birthday. There was meant to be a celebration of his life in San Francisco but obviously that won’t happen. What I would ask is for all of you who have a Crass symbol somewhere – be it on your body or a poster or a t-shirt – doesn’t matter which – take a picture and share it.
I have very fond memories of me, Dave and Dionne in their apartment in Prince Street, NYC putting the world to rights, discussing Jack Kirby’s artwork from the Marvel comics, drinking beers and the next Sleeping Dogs performance.
There is so much I could say but at the moment it’s too emotional so I’ll raise a glass to Dave King who is the King.
What a symbol.
With us forever.
My arms stretch and embrace Dionne, his soul mate.
All the best Dave, decorate the walls wherever you are with your felt pens and save a place for me.
All my love
3rd April 2020
This is a strange weekend for me, the band, the rest of the team and probably many of you as this weekend was going to be the start of the IGNORANT TOUR.
Two years of planning, one year of rehearsals and getting physically fit to play at a sold out show in Leeds followed by the Uni in Newcastle. To say we’re gutted is an understatement but do we feel defeated? NO, we will fight this virus and we will be back. Take care, stay safe and see you at the rescheduled dates.

Another great video from Mark Brown.
I’ll be performing Crass songs again in 2020-2021 with an amazing band. Carol Hodge – keys & vocals; Jay Bagnall – drums; Pete Wilson – lead guitar; Pete Rawlinson – bass guitar.
We’re well pleased to be playing at these brilliant festivals:
SCOTLAND CALLING / RUHRPOTT RODEO / REBELLION
Only 1 more tba in a couple of months.
