Comments Off on Political Rhetoric Week: Crass

Political Rhetoric Week continues with three takes on one of the most iconic punk songs ever. Crass were a psychological and social Molotov candle and the music they made over 30 years ago still possesses the power to ignite fires in people. Crass’ Steve Ignorant is currently touring around the world (including a string of March dates in the U.S.) with a show called “The Last Supper (Crass Songs 1977-1984),” and everywhere disenfranchised folks seeking a spark of hope, a flash of a good future, are reconnecting with this amazing pioneering punk. We offer up a trio of versions of one of the best Crass tunes – the original take, a performance from Steve Ignorant’s tour and a very different take from Jeffrey Lewis, who put out a quietly stunning, radical reworking of Crass’ music in 2007 simply titled 12 Crass Songs.
