I want to invite you to become a Patron of Iron Man Records. Since I started the record label 23 years ago, times have changed.
Iron Man Records seeks to provide a cultural outpost for musicians, writers and travellers in the arts. An Embassy for the Imagine Nation committed to inspiring and promoting Independent creativity. The Record label seeks to encourage residents and travellers in the arts to gather, record and present their cultural insights and experiences. At the moment 122 Patrons support Iron Man Records. The record label works with 22 Artists, runs a number of Projects, and offers services from Legal Advice and Tour Management to a Recording Studio through Framework Studios. Iron Man Records has generated 43 releases and remains committed to producing new music and distributing it through independent networks.
Iron Man Records wants to make all new record releases available on Vinyl. Your help will ensure the insanity continues. Iron Man Records relies on your support, and works hard to earn and keep your trust. Record releases and the campaigns that accompany them cost money. We won’t accept donations from governments, companies, local councils, Arts Funding Organisations, Academic Institutions, Banks, Advertisers or any other interested commercial groups.
Without support from people like you our work would stop. Individual contributions from Patrons and the money generated through my own work in music Tour Management keeps the record label going against the odds. Due to Coronavirus I haven’t been able to do any Tour Management work since March 12th 2020. Your support for Iron Man Records is critical at a time like this.
People-power is what exerts pressure on popular culture. I’m asking you to add your voice, action and support to Iron Man Records, helping to help the artists and musicians we work with. Your support means everything to the artists and creatives we support.
“The support of Patrons means a lot to Iron Man Records, and to me personally. It’s 23 years since I founded Iron Man Records in Birmingham, and I’m still humbled by the generosity, commitment and enthusiasm of those who share a hope for an alternative.”
“He who controls the present, controls the past” – George Orwell.
Whoever controls the internet servers, controls the intellectual record of humankind. And by controlling the intellectual record of humankind, you control our perceptions of who we are. When all music is digital, all independence will cease.
The Label has created more than 43 record releases, some on Vinyl and CD, some purely digital. Everything that the label creates is produced with care and attention to the highest standards. Iron Man Records is a complex manifestation of risk taking, insanity, and making independent music against impossible odds. Iron Man Records works hard to give music, and all those who work to create it, a value.
Please consider giving your support by becoming a Patron. It costs anything from £1 a month and your support can help make things happen faster. Listen here to a selection of the work so far…..
If you don’t have the financial means to become a Patron please help our Artists by sharing what we do with your friends……enjoy the music and try to stay positive…..we have to make the world we want to live in, through our actions, what we do every day…..cheers Mark
