Slice of Life - S.A.D
 
SLICE OF LIFE have released a new official video for new song S.A.D.

Annoucing the news on the Louder than War site, Carole Hodges explained: “S.A.D is a song very close to Steve’s heart. Written with a definite nod towards its Seasonal Affective Disorder namesake, the lyrics plead with the listener for “some kind of love”, always indecisive as to whether such a gesture will be accepted or rejected by the sufferer.”

The black-and-white video was shot at Union Mills in Bolton, and was filmed and produced by RKidMedia.

Slice of Life are currently working on a new album, with a released date penciled in for this summer.

His autobiography “All The Rest Is Propaganda” came out in 2010.

Rubella Ballet are a gothic anarcho-punk band who were formed in 1979 by vocalist Zillah Minx and drummer Sid Ation. Annie Anxiety was their vocalist for a while and ex-members of the Fatal Microbes made up the rest of the group. Rubella Ballet have played alongside Crass, Poison Girls, Faith No More, The Mission, The Damned, Subhumans and more.

Sax-riddled dada punk combo, The Cravats, emerged from Redditch, England in 1977. Signed to Small Wonder Records, they also recorded a series of BBC Radio One John Peel Sessions before splitting in 1982.
