What was the last record you bought on Vinyl, and when was that?

Would you enjoy becoming an Iron Man Records Patron? Do you like listening to music on Vinyl? Would you feel happy supporting the cause and contributing to the next release on Vinyl? Do you want to Immanentize the Eschaton? Are you a risk taker? To be honest, I have NO idea what questions to ask or how much to ask for. What would you be able to give? It’s probably none of my business. Iron Man Records needs more Patrons and you’re exactly the sort of person. You’re even reading this stuff. We all spend money on nonsense. This is …

Police Bastard – Confined: Death, doom, despair and TERRIFYING NOISE… discussed.

Here’s part of an interview With 2 members of Police Bastard conducted by Robin Valk who spends his time writing about Music, Musicians, Music Business and Radio in the UK’s West Midlands. Robin: As a bumbling young rock DJ, I covered the decline of progressive and hard rock throughout the 70s. Pub-rock rose and fell, global forces like Springsteen and Fleetwood Mac emerged, and Birmingham moved from Monsters of Metal to cross-cultural mixes, (UB40, Apache Indian, the Beat, Ruby Turner). Oh, and let’s not forget the New Romantics. On second thought, let’s. By the end of the decade, Punk Rock …

Iron Man Records would like you to become a Patron.

The general history of art and literature shows that the highest achievements of the human mind are, as a rule, not favourably received at first.

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 …

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. …
