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.

Inside Out

May 25, 2003

I can make shopping malls disappear
all The paving slabs and concrete
I can pull up with my bare hands
Can your hear the rail lines sing?

 

The odds are always stacked against us
But theres something inside
Where against them you can use it
Where against them you can

 

I open gates and sliding doors
I take the wires from their heads
I can freeze the rotarblades
And I can bring the missing home

 

The odds are always stacked against us
But theres something inside
Where against them you can use it
Where against them you can

 

I can pull the aircraft from their skies
roll up the barbed wire
I can pull all the powerlines down
The rooftops and the dead brick stretch for miles and miles and miles
Can you hear the rail lines sing?

 

Can you hear them?
Can you hear them?
Can you hear them?
Can you hear them?

 

Come closer let me whisper to you
I have seen it
The light at the edge of the world
I can open up the skies
I reverse all their gold mines
set the prisoners free

 

Can you hear them?
Can you hear them?

Captain Of My Soul

May 25, 2003

I am the Captain of my Soul
I am the Master of my fate
And I’m coming Home
I’m Coming Home
I’m Coming Home
I’m Coming Home

Backwards

May 25, 2003

Am I wasting my life
Have I come this far
I know they’re waiting
Am I wasting all this time
Are you wasting life
Are you filling in

 

They’ll keep you waiting
They’ll keep you waiting
They’ll keep you buying all your time , your time
They’ll keep you waiting

 

When I turn the last light out
A thousand staring eyes
Open up
Am I wasting my life
Am I filling in
Walking up their hill backwards
Backwards
Walking up their hill backwards

 

They’ll keep you buying all your time
They’ll keep you buying all your time
They’ll keep you wasting all your life
They’ll keep you filling in
Walking up the hill backwards
Backwards
Walkin up the hill backwards

Count To Ten

May 25, 2003

Our work is never done
The dead are home before us
Don’t you tell me its just a job
All this killing make it stop

 

The killing
In the name of science
Make it stop

 

In the time it takes to count to ten
Another one has gone
Who will stop them in their tracks
Who will bring the missing back

 

The killing
In the name of science
Make it stop

 

In the time it takes
To count to ten
Make it stop

No One

May 25, 2003

I am no one
From no one’s Nation
I have no name
And no possessions

 

No One

 

I am no one
From no religion
A freedom fighter
Nine unknown faces

 

No One

 

If you’re asking
You’ll never know
I am no one

 

I am no one
A black eyed madman
A faceless captain
Of all lost causes

 

No One

 

If You’re asking
You’ll never know
I am no one

 

A faceless captain
Of all lost causes

 

I am no one
From no one’s Nation

 

I am no one
From no one’s Nation

The Trolley Song

May 25, 2003

Sorry I’m late, I had trouble getting here
Met a man, yes another strange one
I was standing, looking up at the thunderclouds
said he was, the man who keeps the sky

 

What kind of people are these?
Who put value more on property than people
Who put their wealth before their wisdom
Who fill the air with dust and all these poisons

 

I can carry, the sound with my bare hands
Of the ships bells passing in the night
I tend to the roofgardens of the world
Rest your tears, let me show you how to
Make it rain
Make it rain

 

The path of life is not an easy one
And we must sail the oceans of our dreams
Steer clear of all the money scrapers
And when the thunderstorms come my friend, ride your ride

 

Ride your ride

I am a thunderdreamer
I am The keeper of the skies

 

Ride your ride

Lost Yourself

May 25, 2003

Today I sat and glued the pieces of my life
And looking up all I saw were the fragments of my mind
Looking out across this pale and shattered land
This land of flags and lines and ways to divide a broken people

Broken people

It seems to me its all beyond our dreams
It seems to me its all beyond our reach
How can we resist the dream they push on us
How can we resist when we’ve even lost ourselves

We’ve even lost ourselves
We’ve even lost ourselves
We’ve even lost ourselves

The Shed

May 25, 2003

Standing at the window
Hands pressed against the glass
Over the garden fence I see it
The neighbours shed
I’m getting in the shed
Draw my pictures write my words
Peace at last from a troubled world
I’m getting in the shed

 

Words by Mark from Last Under The Sun – Gone CD

The Don

May 25, 2003

Don’t Make these empty promises

You intend to be the GOOD master

What you really mean to say

You intend to be THE MASTER

 

Your work of pen and paper

Will never bind us to your master

And you cannot kill your god

Because your greed wears so many faces

 

Not one of you, could kill your god

Not one of you

 

Not one of you, could kill your god

Not one of you, could kill your god

 

Am I the last one, that you cannot cheat

Am I the last one, that you cannot keep

 

And you cannot kill your god

Because your greed wears so many faces

 

Not one of you, could kill your god

Not one of you
