If I have to name one label that stood out as the most interesting label of the 80's, I would choose IRS Records (International Record Syndicate in long form). Buzzcocks got their first US record presence on that label while The Police had their start with IRS (under Illegal Records imprint) before jumping to A&M. At least a dozen IRS tunes will be played April 30 on the Modern World. Go to Mr. Bill's I.R.S. Records Corner for all you need to know about the label.
