Burn Money – Become A Patron of Iron Man Records

Iron Man Records wants to make all new record releases available on Vinyl. 23 Patrons currently support the record label. You are invited to become a Patron to ensure the insanity continues. The journey from 1996, when Iron Man Records began, has been back-breaking. The record label has generated a mountain of debt and a serious Class “A” drug habit would have probably worked out a lot cheaper. Everything I earn, working as a Tour Manager, goes into keeping Iron Man Records moving and your support would be much appreciated at a critical time. Iron Man Records continues to release …

Your Insanity Will Do – Become A Patron Of Iron Man Records

I bought a copy of “The Manual” by Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drummond in 1996. I’d been looking for a copy for years. Some of it made sense, some of it didn’t. I liked the writing style and the advice given. I sent my receipt as proof of purchase to the PO BOX printed in the book and requested The Guarantee. This is the reply that Bill Drummond sent back on headed paper. By reply Bill Drummond became the first Unaware Patron of Iron Man Records. Blame him for everything. A lot has happened since 1996. Your Insanity will do. …

A small donation could help Iron Man Records to release more music on Vinyl

I want to invite you to support Iron Man Records releasing more music on Vinyl via Patreon. I have been running Iron Man Records since 1996. I have never earnt anything, of any significance, from the work I have done so far, and neither have the bands. In fact the debts are what the label’s worth. It has been a true labour of love, and I like to think the music has made a lot of people happy. The label has released over 30 records by some fantastic bands and artists and continues to work hard on a daily basis. …

Independent Record Labels of the Internet Era by Kristian Evans

Few people ask me questions these days. I’m probably deluded thinking anyone would actually want to know what I do for a living, and if I told them honestly they would probably think I’m mad. In truth, I like to be left to get on in peace so I don’t really care. I think the last time I faced 20 questions was a round of “German Traffic Police Roadside Mastermind,” but that’s another story. A few months ago, I spent some time on Skype talking to Kristian Evans and answered as many questions as I could, probably more than 20, …

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 …
