The only way to support a revolution…..

Looking back on this year, Iron Man Records has had an interesting one. Three recurring themes emerged.

“The only way to support a revolution is to make your own” — Abbie Hoffman, Woodstock Nation.

“Reality is not enough; we need nonsense too. Drifting into a world of fantasy is not an escape from reality but a significant education about the nature of life.” Edmund Miller, Lewis Carroll Observed

“It’s dangerous to understand new things too quickly” — Josiah Warren, True Civilization

Make of that what you will. Some of the significant things that happened this year included:

Seth Faergolzia of Dufus brought his new band Multibird to Europe on...

If it’s not impossible, it’s not worth doing…..Find the others. Go to The Adelphi.

Adelphi is a Greek word meaning "brothers" (a + delphi, literally "of the same womb")

Many thoughts pass through your mind when you do enough driving, few of them make any sense. I take a lot of bands to a lot of gigs, it's what I do for money these days. Sometimes it can be hard not to pull the van over, drag everyone out on the motorway hard shoulder and tell them to "Stop living out of the asshole of your belief system and kick out the jams motherfucker!" In other words, shut up and play the music, or stop blaming everyone else and learn to get on with it. We all need each other in order to survive in this business, even if we don't like that idea. Write, rehearse, record, perform. Everyone you meet has a piece in the puzzle. It's your job to work out which...

The Story of TC Lethbridge – 2000 TC: Standing on the verge of getting it on by John Higgs

Automatic writing in the sacred landscape. Established 1991.

TC Lethbridge - 2000 TC (Released by Iron Man Records - 23rd November 2014)

If you spend too much time in a state of mind which prevents normal perception, behaviour, or social interaction you might end up running a record label. Living life in a completely deluded state, generating massive debt for no apparent reason can be difficult to keep going for more than 17 years at a time but, it seems by some terrible mistake I've made it look relatively easy. But anyway, enough of that, I want to explain something.

I went to a meeting last year year, the back room of a pub, The George in Southwark actually. The pub is just a few minutes walk from The Shard in London. Gimpo worked on The...

The square root of the M25: Gimpo’s 25 Hour M25 Spin

A witness statement from Iron Man Records 2014.

I didn't get much sleep the night before, I had been working on the release of the new John Sinclair record "Mohawk." By the time I climbed into the car and started the engine it was 10am. I drove to London and dropped the car in Brentford, West London. I picked up the keys. I had a 9 seater VW Splitter van on hire from DYC Touring and headed to Shepherd's Bush. I wasn't due to meet the band until 3pm so I had a bit of time to park up and make phone calls.

If I was applying for a job I'd probably tell you I'm a tour manager, a music manager, I can drive a splitter van and tow trailers, and I have a clean driving licence. I could tell you I've been running a record label called Iron Man Records for 18 years, I play in a couple of bands, I run a few websites, I work...

TC Lethbridge

TC Lethbridge are Doggen, Kev Bales and Flinton Chalk. Automatic writing in the sacred landscape. Established 1991.

T.C. Lethbridge - Band photo.

Daniel James, Kev Bales, Tony Doggen Foster, Flinton Chalk at John Stewart Hall, Yatesbury, Wessex, where most of the tracks for Mina and 2000TC were recorded.

Flint had a tape with him, rough mixes of 2000TC songs recorded in Avebury which he pulled out of a box of cassettes under the stairs. I was keen to hear it. I was a big fan of the Mina instrumentals. I don’t know what I had been expecting, but it wasn’t the overwhelming sense of purpose that burst out of the speakers. I was reminded of the Jimi Hendrix Experience,...
