North East Calling 25-09-2021

After it had to be rescheduled twice due to the pandemic, North East Calling was finally happening. What a line up and so great to meet up with everyone again.

The Ignorant Band: Steve Ignorant (vocals), Carol Hodge (vocals & keys), Jay Bagnall (drums), Pete Rawlinson (bass), Pete Wilson (guitar). All photos by Simon Balaam.

Due to the quick change over time we didn’t had time to put our drum skin on but that didn’t matter, Jay just put it next to it.
Having Colin Jerwood joining us on stage made a great night even more special.
Thanks everyone for supporting us. We truly appreciated it and absolutely loved it.

The Old Cold Store, Nottingham 24-09-2021

Our very first gig of the IGNORANT TOUR after 18 months delay, had to of course start in Nottingham where Crass played 37 years ago. We were all pretty nervous and super excited to finally get on stage and perform those Crass songs that we’ve been rehearsing for the last 2 1/2 years.

What a night! Thanks to our Special guests ‘Static Kill’ and ‘The Blunders’ for joining us. Massive thanks to Lee Garratts from ‘Both Eyes Open’ for setting up the gig and of course a very special thank you to all that come along. It truly was a great start of our tour.

Feeding Of The Five Thousand Listening Party 14-05-2021

Yesterday I joined Tim Burgess at one of his listening parties. It was great that so many people at exactly 7pm pressed play or put the needle of their record player down on the vinyl or listened via Spotify/YouTube or other streaming options.

I really enjoyed listening to the album again while tweeting away. If you missed it you can click on the link and listen to it in real time.
