Iron Man Records Patron invites Rachel Mayfield to play The Regal Theatre in Bathgate

"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. Making music available on Vinyl is more than just making a physical thing, it's about demonstrating and maintaining some form of independence from the mechanisms of the digital platform, and everything else. Whatever that is this week. Performing live is not just about going out and playing to people face to face, entertaining, it's about choosing a suitable venue, perhaps a space that maintains an independence from the corporate clone business of franchise and chain owned...
