An interview with Steve Ignorant, discussing the upcoming New Zealand dates for The Last Supper tour, appears in today’s issue of the New Zealand Herald (2 June 2011).

Admitting that he has been enjoying a beer or two ahead of the interview, Ignorant is once again keen to downplay his own political intelligence, suggesting that he is nonplussed when he is asked challenging questions about politics or the idea of revolution. He says:

I’m just a beer-drinking, cigarette-smoking, machine gun who screams down a microphone doing these amazing songs that people got into.

The Last Supper tour next arrives in Australia on 10 June (for four dates) before moving on to New Zealand on 18 June (for a further two shows).
