Steve Ignorant Band


£18.50 + Booking Fee

All Standing - 10+ Show


Oct 12


Steve Ignorant is a singer/songwriter and artist. He co-founded the anarcho-punk band CRASS with Penny Rimbaud in 1977. When CRASS finished he played in various bands and is currently performing with his own band Steve Ignorant’s Slice Of Life.


After the huge success of performing CRASS songs at The Last Supper Tour in 2010-11 and playing at most of the big punk festivals in 2016-2018, Steve Ignorant has started to tour again. Having played at sold out UK shows earlier in the year, Steve will be bringing the IGNORANT TOUR to Frome in October 2024.


The band will be performing the best CRASS material from 1977 – 1982. ‘Do They Owe Us A Living’ and ‘Big A Little A’ to name a few. ‘Poison In A Pretty Pill’ and ‘Berkertex Bribe’ are some of the songs that will be performed by Carol Hodge, the female vocalist. This is your chance to hear the songs of arguably Britain’s top and most influential Anarcho-Punk band, as played by the original lead singer Steve Ignorant and his superb band. Performed with the same anger and intensity of those days, the band has given these songs a new lease of life.


The political and lyrical ideas of CRASS are even more relevant today as they were then and with the entire CRASS Catalogue having been remastered and reissued through One Little Independent in April 2019, the interest in CRASS and what it stands for has increased and intensified. After a successful couple of years playing at sold out shows and festivals, there is no stopping the Steve Ignorant Band. With their raw energy and rejuvenated sound they are here to stay.


Support from ZOUNDS + VIRUS


ZOUNDS – Zounds have been performing and recording for 40 years. Their debut single ‘Can’t Cheat Karma’ was recorded for Crass Records and reached number one in the independent charts in 1980. Julian Cope described it as the defining record of the post-punk era and claimed it contained the best middleeight of all time. The band grew out the London squatting community in the 1970s and were pioneers of the free festival circuit and early participants in the independent DIY scene.


VIRUS – Formed in 1983, Virus have been described as the best kept secret in the DIY punk scene and over their 41 year history have released four singles, one split-single and six albums. The band are currently writing a new album which they hope to release later this year.
