Iron Man Records releases to be included in British Library Sound Archive

March 23, 2017

Something happens while you are orbiting the Nation’s capital on the M25 for 25 hours in a van with a dangerous madman jumping around and shouting instructions from the back seat. James at British Library Sound Archive has been in touch, he wants to catalogue and archive all the releases on Iron Man Records. The music will become part of the nation’s audio & cultural heritage and it will be available (on a restricted access server) to anyone holding a British Library readers pass (writers, researchers, fans etc.). You have to go in person either to London or to the other site in Boston Spa, Yorkshire. The Library do not allow any material to go out on loan or be downloaded and they comply with current copyright legislation regarding sound recordings. When catalogued the releases will be part of the Sound & Moving Image collection.. http://sami.bl.uk

I have supplied physical copies of everything where they exist, and WAV files of all releases to ensure a good copy will be available.

James says “with world class facilities at hand we can provide the safest possible home for your releases, both for preservation and access, for many generations to come.”

Amazing. Some things cannot be explained. I will let you know when the materials supplied are available to access. James may be at work for a few weeks assembling it all at his end.

Garden Gang, G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S, Eastfield – Tuesday 2 November 2010 – The Old Wharf. Oxford Street, Digbeth, Birmingham

October 11, 2010

Here’s an update from Jessi,

Here’s advance notice for our upcoming shindig at the Old Wharf. We have the lovely Garden Gang over from Munich doing their catchy glam-punk thang, G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S doing a rare gig in Birmingham, or a rare gig anywhere come to think of it, and Eastfield doing the usual nonsense.

Tuesday 2 November 2010  – BIRMINGHAM Old Wharf.
Oxford Street, Digbeth.
Garden Gang + Gorgeous + Eastfield.
8pm. £5.

It may be a ‘school-night’, but that’s no excuse – come and numb the pain of work, or die a slave to the machine.
We will probably put Eastfield on first, like.

EASTFIELD/GARDEN GANG TOUR

Saturday 30 October 2010 – FELLING (GATESHEAD) Duke of Cumberland.
Sunday 31 October 2010 – ASHTON-UNDER-LYNE The Station.(afternoon gig)
Monday 1 November 2010 – ROMFORD The Horn.
Tuesday 2 November 2010  – BIRMINGHAM Old Wharf.
Wednesday 3 November 2010  – LONDON 12 Bar.
Thursday 4 November 2010 – SHOREHAM-on-SEA Duke of Wellington.
Friday 5 November 2010 – BRISTOL The Plough.

WHO SHOT WHO?

May 26, 2009

WHO SHOT WHO? is the side project of Peter Byrchmore (G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S, GOLDBLADE, ex-NIGHTINGALES) and Alex Lusty from hoolie rappers Acarine.

G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S – Cursed With Being

December 16, 2008

IMB6005 GORGEOUS: Cursed with Being….. CD

This is the first official release for the oddball Midlands based iconoclasts who were formed by notorious indie maverick Peter Byrchmore – a man whose varied career to date has been responsible for ten or so indie chart hits and a brace or so of proper grown up chart moments. Best known for being in eternal Peel faves The Nightingales. Peter’s guitar and vocalising is supported by Maria Harvey, (another ex ‘gale), who plays the keyboards and also sings beautifully, Abi Bruton and her shiny trombone, Rick Shaw ,(honest) Sax God, John McQueen and his big bass guitars and Andy Nicklin who plays the drum kit. In gauntlets. The basic G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S tenet is to do with stamping out wet music in a way that transcends any stylistic elitism. They see no point aligning with any sub genre or half arsed movements because everyone is seen as a prospective G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S fan. Tired of a relentless diet of gutless, opinion free musical posturing, G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S make a gleefully opinionated , energetic, hook laden racket and are content to offer their intriguing views couched in dry, black wit rather than ram received opinions down throats. G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S have absolutely no intention of preaching to the converted. So there. ‘Cursed with being…’ was recorded in a week at the Magic Garden Studios and was produced by Gavin Monaghan who has worked with all manner of characters, (like Mercury Rev, Gold Blade and Terris). “Bit of a closet genius to be honest” said Peter of his producer, and who are we to disagree? www.myspace.com/wearegorgeous
