If you ever wanted to know how / why or what inspired Steve to write his lyrics than this is the book for you.

Louder Than Words festival
The Palace Hotel, Oxford Street, Manchester, M60 7HA

Drawing on their diverse and personal experiences of life and performance as well as their shared wider interest in music hall, Steve and CP will take us on a journey across some surprising artistic endeavours, including some that involve violence and sausages and others that involve the police and crocodiles. Make sure you join us – you’ll be pleased as Punch!

Penny Rimbaud is also appearing at the 2016 Louder Than Words event on the same day.

Steve Ignorant discusses Punch and Judy

Steve Ignorant (Professor Ignorant) discusses his continuing fascination with the world of Punch and Judy in the latest issue (No. 198, September 2016) of Gonzo Weekly (available online and as a digital download, for free). Interviewer Alan Dearling explores how Ignorant “a motormouthed punk icon… swapped the Tourette’s rage of Crass for a life as a Punch and Judy Professor.” Dearling also shot a video extract of Ignorant’s presentation on the history and meaning of Punch at the Weird Weekend in Hartland, North Devon, in August 2016.
