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.

Pigfish

January 8, 2009

DLPR2006 PIGFISH: The Reverend James CD mini LP

Pigfish, Birmingham’s saviours of all things punk – pop, ‘The Reverend James’ picked up loads of great reviews in the music press and fanzines, including 4/5 in Kerrang and 8/10 in Metal Hammer together with more airplay than it’s fair to expect for a new band. This combined with the relentless touring of their killer live set helped win Pigfish a permanent place in the psyche of anyone who ever loved perfect noisy, hook-laden attitude. Harking back to the glory days of the late seventies when Irish label Good Vibrations rubber stamped the perfect pop-punk blueprint that the Ramones and Buzzcocks pioneered, Pigfish are the original 1-2-3-4 heads down, guitars up loud, killer-song-smiths that so many guitar pretenders from both side of the Atlantic get so very wrong.
