AGMP presents STEVE IGNORANT with PARANOID VISIONS
Support from INTERROBANG + HEADSTICKS
Steve Ignorant was the lead vocalist and co-founder of anarcho-punk group Crass. Since the band split in 1984 he has worked with Conflict, Current 93 & Stratford Mercenaries. He now fronts his own group Slice of Life.
Paranoid Visions were formed in 1981 in Dublin, Ireland and quickly allied themselves to the anarcho punk fraternity of the second wave of punk rock in the early 80’s. Heavily influenced by the Crass ethic of DIY music, the band formed their own F.O.A.D label.
Paranoid Visons played gigs and toured with the likes of Poison Girls, DIRT, Blyth Power, Subhumans and The Instigators. In the early 90’s they played with bands like Snuff, the Macc Ladds and Manic Street Preachers before calling it a day in 1992. Despite their disbanding, the 90’s saw Paranoid Visions becoming the biggest punk band Ireland had ever produced, featuring on several TV shows, newspapers and being offered numerous record deals from Major labels. In 1996 they reformed to play support on some dates for the Sex Pistols Filthy Lucre tour. In 2001 they reformed again and played with The Damned & The Dickies. Since then the band have released some great albums including 2013’s “When…?” with Steve Ignorant. The collaboration has since played major festival slots in America, Canada and the UK. In early 2016 the band recorded their follow up to the critically acclaimed “When…?” album and the results will be released as a 10″ ep “The Height of Ignorance” and an LP “Now and Then…!” in the Summer of 2016.
