I.R.S. Corner Discussion Forum
   Ask questions, post news, make stupid comments or discuss your favorite I.R.S. artists here on the discussion board -- but keep questions about Adrian Zmed to a minimum, please.
The I.R.S. Artist Roster
   A complete list of every artist who ever appeared on any I.R.S. Record (well, okay -- it's still growing, but it is pretty darn complete)! Each artist name will link you to their bio and I.R.S. discography as well as other associated links. Not every artist has an active link yet, but check back regularly -- more are added each month!
The I.R.S. Records Story
    Learn the amazing history of I.R.S. Records! Learn how a little label grew from the laughing stock of the A&M lot into a platinum powerhouse! Learn how the Copeland Brothers Troika ruled the New Wave era! Learn how the I.R.S. team got right in the face of "music censorship witch" (and "wanna-bee" First Lady) Tipper Gore! Learn how a young college whipper-snapper rose from I.R.S. second fiddle to become head honcho of MCA music! And learn how it all ended in the mid-90s and from its ashes arose Ark21!
I.R.S. Corner Memorial Page
   Tributes to those IRS artists and personnel who've moved on to that "Great Band In The Sky." Send your thoughts on these musical geniuses via e-mail and we'll add those comments deemed appropriate in future updates...
I.R.S.'s A&M Era Discography
   A numerical listing of every record in every I.R.S. number series! Essential for the completist! Click on an artist's name to go to their bio and discography.
I.R.S.'s MCA Era Discography
   Our list of the MCA Era is still under construction but many of the artists will be found in the Artist Roster. Check back every month as we expand!
I.R.S.'s Indy/Cema Era Discography
   Our list of the Indy/Cema Era is still under construction but many of the artists will be found in the Artist Roster. Check back every month as we expand!
Faulty Products Discography
   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?)
I.R.S. Media Film/Video Releases
   Coming Soon!!! A listing of theatrical and video releases from the media arm of the mighty I.R.S. Empire.

I.R.S. Corner FAQs
    Before you demand we reissue your favorite I.R.S. release or ask us where to send your band's demo READ THIS! The main thing to remember -- this is NOT an official website -- it is a fan site, created and maintained through the love, blood, sweat and tears of a die-hard I.R.S. fanatic!
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!

Also: Due to the amount of mail received at Mr. Bill's I.R.S. Corner, we do not have time to respond to all messages or answer specific questions that are not covered in our discographies (though Mr Bill foolishly tries whenever we let him out), nor can we help in locating recordings that are out of print or determine if a CD is in print on the import market. If you have a question, please post it on the discussion board so that our regular visitors can assist you.
Besides, that's what every other fan website says...
