STEVE IGNORANT’S SLICE OF LIFE: Don’t Turn Away: CD

Dec 06, 2019

Steve Ignorant, best known as the frontman for Crass, has been active since the ’70s in the punk scene playing with Conflict, Schwartzeneggar, and Paranoid Visions. While the vocals remain unmistakable and the lyrics as caustic as forty years ago, the music is tinkling pianos and acoustic guitars with a female trio backup. I could imagine Steve, with his tie loosened, on the ivories in the back of a smoky pub. Is it punk? Musically, no, but the intent sure is. You decide. –Tim Brooks (Overground, overgroundrecords.co.uk)
