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.
