- What's New?
5 November 2004: This update has been long overdue! Mr Bill's fulltime job as a
Combat Photographer has kept him busy the last few years, but he has managed to sneak in a
few minor (and unannounced) updates since the last one in January 2003.
One (yes, just one) new artist page:
More artists will be added very soon in
celebration of I.R.S. Records' 25th Anniversary along with some other very
exciting news! Stand by!
Sadly, the I.R.S. Memorial Page, continues to grow.
Previous updates can be read at the

- Faulty Products
- The imprint of I.R.S. that resulted from
signing The Dead Kennedys! Parent label A&M, still burning from their Sex Pistols fiasco,
wanted no part of Jello Biafra's controversial band. Hard core punk, music with an
edge, and extremely uncommercial I.R.S. acts (with a few exceptions) were relegated to
Faulty Products... Watch for this Discography to grow and check back every month as we
expand! (Hey! Is there an echo in here?)

- About Mr Bill
- No, I'm not a Copeland nor am I a former
I.R.S. Staffer. I'm just a fan of great music with an extensive collection of vinyl,
tape and acrylic encased foil (CDs). But if that's not good enough for you, you can
learn all about boring, anal-retentive, techno-dork, video-geek, sailor-boy me right here!
