Steve Ignorant’s Slice Of Life follow their 2014 debut ‘Love And A Lamp-post’ with a new collection of eleven songs titled ‘Don’t Turn Away’.
Ignorant has excelled himself with this album, his passion of creating music and fighting injustice is clear in every single song. This album is about the highs and lows of life, getting older and the struggle to survive.
Ignorant highlights some of the songs:
The lines from Your Day Will Come “Something you should know bully-boys and ‘ladies’” speaks for itself.
S.A.D. is a song about depression, despair and loss.
Steve: “We need to keep talking about this and hopefully by sharing our experiences people will know that they are not alone”
Diffrability celebrates our individualities.
“I’m proud that I’m different. Glad I’m not so uniform. Proud that I’m Ignorant. Glad that I’m not of your norm.”
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 retains the emotional impact and compassion that has long distinguished Steve’s work.
To sum it up: a poignant, emotional album of 11 tracks that stays with you long after the final note has been played.
