WE FIGHT AND WILL BE BACK

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.

Do They Owe Us A Living

Max Bode

More sad news I’m afraid – Max Bode, one of my closest friends and the inspiration behind the song ‘Diffrability’ passed away Friday 1st November 2019 at the age of 25.

Listen for free on spotify to Diffrability: https://open.spotify.com/artist/5cfgbqj0YowAIiw0EkIGGQ

He always had a smile on his face and whenever we got together we’d always have a great laugh at the expense of those straights who couldn’t see past his wheelchair. Fucking lovely bloke and will be missed by many.

Max you’re not insignificant

You were not so uniform

I’m proud to have known you

And glad that you weren’t of the norm

All My love

Steve

Dave King

I’m absolutely gutted to have to tell you that Dave King, who designed the Crass symbol in 1977, has died. He was a bloody good mate and I’ll miss him.

My thoughts and arms reach out to Dionne, his soulmate of many years. But we can all take comfort in the knowledge that a part of Dave is emblazoned on people’s bodies all over the world.

See you later Dave. You’ll never be forgotten. Here’s to you mate.
