      Havingcut 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 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.

      Steve’s songwriting had been an influence on Sleaford Mods’ Jason Williamson who became an instant fan of Slice of Life and requested they support them on their Key Markets tour.Each show would start with Mark Wynn, followed by Slice of Life and ending with the Sleaford Mods playing to capacity crowds. On and off stage the tour was a huge success and clearly showed what could be achieved when working with like minded people.

      This album ‘Live at the Forum 2015’ will give a taste of that tour and will show that having shed the punk noise that defined Crass, Slice of Life retain the emotional impact and compassion that has long distinguished Steve’s work.

      With preparations underway for a second studio album it was decided the pressing should be limited, so it’s available as one-off pressing of just 300 copies.

      The album contains four live tracks which have yet to be recorded.

      Slice of Life are:

      Steve Ignorant – Vocals

      Carol Hodge – Piano, backing vocals

      Pete Wilson – Guitar, backing vocals

      Pete Rawlinson – Bass guitar

      Track listing:

      Our World / Love And A Lamp-post / Slaughterhouse / Your Day Will Come / Eleven Chimneys / Stretford Blue /The Way Things Are / Slice Of Life
