On episode 13, one of the founding members and lead shouter of the renowned anarcho-punk band CRASS, Steve Ignorant, discusses the protest songs they wrote over 40 years ago, which he continues to perform.“Sad thing is, those songs are still relevant; you’ve just got to change a few politicians’ names.”He also shares his motivations for the songs he has been writing for his new 21st-century project, Steve Ignorant’s Slice of Life, which delves heavily into contemplating the inevitability of aging and mortality. At this point, he’s not showing signs of slowing his life down and still has plenty of international touring in the works, more books to be published, and more songs to be written.Support Wood-stein.ca by becoming a Patron.https://www.patreon.com/ColinBurrowesor by donating through Paypalhttps://www.paypal.com/donate/?hosted_button_id=QBZG6EHTUYZ4Yfor more information about Steve Ignorant, check out:https://www.steveignorant.com/https://www.facebook.com/steveignorantofficialhttps://twitter.com/steveigs https://www.instagram.com/steve_ignorant/ Music and Merch: https://www.steveignorant.com/shop/Music in this episode can be found on the following albums.CRASS – The Feeding of the 5,000https://crass.bandcamp.com/album/the-feeding-of-the-5000CRASS – Stations of the CRASShttps://crass.bandcamp.com/album/stations-of-the-crassSteve Ignorant's Slice of Life – Live at Ramsgate Music Hallhttps://ramsgatemusichall.bandcamp.com/album/steve-ignorants-slice-of-life-live-at-ramsgate-music-hallCRASS – Best Before 1984https://crass.bandcamp.com/album/best-before-1984

On episode 11, ex-Chumbawamba member Dunstan Bruce speaks about the contemplation of his place in this world through his contemporary art, whether it’s singing with his new band Interrobang‽, treading theatre stages in his one-person show, Am I Invisible Yet? or scrutinizing his place in the Chumbawamba legacy in the film, I Get Knocked Down.

All three of these creative projects deal with aging and feeling the desire to remain relevant. As the notes on the Bandcamp page for the self-titled Interrobang‽ album state, “it’s all about the cliché of the mid-life man-crisis, and it’s sometimes slightly shirty, occasionally curmudgeonly, but always, always brutally honest.
