“Years ago I read a book called Brighton Rock, for days the atmosphere of that story stayed with me and I’ve always wanted to create an album that would have that same effect on people.” Steve Ignorant

Carol Hodge – piano & BVs



Pete Wilson – guitar & BVs



Pete Rawlinson – bass



Having cut his punk teeth in Crass, Steve Ignorant’s latest project – Slice Of Life – allows for the more contemplative side of his song-writing to reveal itself. Like musical depictions of a British kitchen-sink drama, the songs on the debut album Love and a Lamp-post (Overground Records, 2014) provide vivid vignettes of the everyday. Both personal and universal, Slice of Life present ruminations from the bar stool honed on the late-night walk home. Musically, the band is built on an acoustic arrangement of piano, guitar and bass. Having shed the punk noise that defined Crass, Slice of Life retain the emotional impact and compassion that has long distinguished Steve’s work.



Currently, Slice of Life are writing new songs and touring extensively all over the UK and Europe. They have recently supported kindred-spirits Sleaford Mods to capacity crowds at venues such as London’s Forum and performed at the Rebellion, Wickerman and Something Else A Bit North festivals. In so doing, the band have won over many new fans and rekindled the interest of many an older punk rocker.



Steve Ignorant is a singer songwriter and co-founded the anarcho-punk band Crass with Penny Rimbaud in 1977. After Crass, he sang with Conflict, Schwartzenegger and Stratford Mercenaries. In 2007 he performed Crass’ entire Feeding of the 5000 album live at the Shepherds Bush Empire and throughout 2010-2011 presented The Last Supper, touring/celebrating the songs of Crass around the globe, ending with a farewell gig at Shepherds Bush Empire in November 2011. In 2013 Steve and Paranoid Visions decided to record an album. The result ‘When …?’, a hybrid of styles, all with a nod to early 80s anarcho-punk. They now perform live on special occasions.



Carol Hodge provided the female vocals in Steve’s Last Supper band from January 2011. Previous projects Wrecks and Bad Taste Barbies. Carol also plays piano and sings solo as Carol Hodge (FKA Crystal Grenade).



Pete Wilson joined The Last Supper band when he took over on bass in 2011. He has played guitar and bass in several bands, including Wrecks, Andy T and Lies, All Lies.



Peter Rawlinson currently plays solo as Little Hero and plays guitar in garage/psych band Three Dimensional Tanx who released their 3rd album last year. Before Slice of Life he played with Pete Wilson in Lies, All Lies.
