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. Iron Man Records would like to release all new records on Vinyl and you can help make something happen. You are invited to become a Patron.

I want to invite you to become a Patron of Iron Man Records. Since I started the record label 22 years ago, times have changed and it is becoming harder and harder to assemble enough money to make new releases possible. 61 Patrons currently support the record label. Iron Man Records wants to make all new record releases available on Vinyl. You are invited to become a Patron. Your help will 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 cheaper. Everything I earn, working as a Tour Manager, goes into...

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...

The journey from 1996, when Iron Man Records began, has been back-breaking.

Iron Man Records continues to release records by some of the most interesting and talented artists, writers, and musicians. There has to be something that opposes the...

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.
