Our first book!

Southern's first book!

We are chuffed as chips to be publishing our very first book.  This is an exciting moment for us, and we couldn’t be happier that the book in question is Steve Ignorant’s autobiography, The Rest Is Propaganda.  Written with Steve Pottinger over the last two years, The Rest Is Propaganda tells the story of a young boy growing up in Dagenham, East London, in the shadow of the Ford factory.  How that boy eventually went on to form the influential punk band Crass with Penny Rimbaud is only one part of the story of how Stephen Williams became Steve Ignorant.

Now available to order from our web shop: http://bit.ly/igsbook

We have plans for some other books in the pipeline at the moment. After all, we’re already part of a one struggling industry, why not join another? Ha!

Thanks.

Steve Ignorant presents The Last Supper… this week!

The Last Supper

In planning for nearly a year, this week the tour that Steve Ignorant is calling “The Last Supper” kicks off with two dates in the UK – Bristol O2 Academy on Friday 24th and Birmingham O2 Academy on Saturday 25th.

The tour is subtitled “Crass Songs 1977-1984″ and Steve says it represents the last time he will play these songs on stage with a band.  (Presumably he is not ruling out a pub tour in his twilight years, accompanied only by a ukulele.)

The tour is an important celebration of a band who are often overlooked in the media’s misty-eyed remembrances of punk.  Steve explains his own reasons for doing the tour in an interview with Manchester’s Under The Pavement radio programme.

Also featured on the programme is an interview with Peter Jones from Paranoid Visions, who will be supporting on the Manchester gig on 1st October.  The tour then moves on to Edinburgh on Saturday 2nd October.  A full list of gigs is below.
