STEVE IGNORANT'S SLICE OF LIFE - Don't Turn Away (* A REVIEW*)
'Anarcho punk legend' Steve Ignorant returns with his Slice of Life and their second album, Don't Turn Away.
Musically Slice of life are as far removed from Crass as Crass were from Frank Sinatra, but lyrically the passion, aggression and compassion still remains in every word Steves heartfelt vocals deliver. A piano plays and backing vocals swing in a jazzy sway. An acoustic guitar and the bass keep rhythm in a beautiful and blissed out blues way. Folk music, made by folk with things to say and tunes to play. This may be mellow, but the emotions and feelings are not. It's still about fucking the system! but in a suave and sophisticated style. Ignore this album at your own ignorance! Stand out tracks?....all of 'em!
Available from Aug 23rd on Overground Records.
