Steve Ignorant is interviewed in the new issue of Vive Le Rock magazine (No 16, 2014). In a one-page Q&A, Ignorant recalls – amongst many other things – his hopes of punk:

I thought for a couple of months that we could make some change, if everyone in punk got together. But of course they didn’t, for various reasons, such as signing up to labels. […] For a while, I think were actually selling more records than the actual top 10. The indie charts were covered with bands like Conflict, Crass and Poison Girls and we thought we were doing something. Then the Tories got in again and burst that balloon. Gone were the days of thinking we were going to change the world.
