Steve has also just published his autobiography, The Rest Is Propaganda, which tells the story of his upbringing in the wilds of East London, and how he escaped a life on the factory floor, formed Crass with Penny Rimbaud, and how Stephen Williams became Steve Ignorant.
Steve has a website ‘ere, a site for all things Crass is ‘ere, youse can read a review of The Story of Crass by George Berger ‘ere and Rich Cross looks at all that stuff what them done about anarcho-punk ‘ere.
PS. Course they fucking do!
