Steve Ignorant – Last Supper

I went to see Steve Ignorant at the Birmingham O2 last night and was mightily impressed.

I guess I am lucky enough to have seen Crass at their height, at Salisbury Grange supported by Dirt, and for me it was in the top two gigs I have ever been to, so going to Steve in Birmingham was really exciting.

The gig was opened by the legend that is John Robb and his band Goldblade. To be honest they did ok, but not really the sort of stuff I’m into.

When Steve came on he looked almost embarrassed to be there, but as soon as he opened with ‘Punk is Dead’ the crowd was his. Just as well cos he was a bit out of practice and needed a breather every now and then….luckily the crowd sang all the words in these bits :-).

Biggest song of the night for me was the epic ‘So What’…I was chuffed to bits I still remembered all the words. I had managed to get on stage in Salisbury and sing it with Crass….I left it to Steve and the crowd this time.

I was wondering how they would do any from the Penis Envy album and thought it would be ignored, but they came up a blinder with Beki…what a voice. She was absolutely amazing….her vocals on ‘shaved women’ were immense. If anyone knows if she’s in another band let me know….I wanna hear more.

So, a fuckin great night, a great set, superb musicians and the pleasure of seeing Mr Ignorant……bloody marvellous.

Thanks to ismusicloud for bunging this on You Tube…….
