I.R.S. Records was launched in 1979 by Miles Copeland III, brother of the Police drummer Stewart Copeland and music promoter Ian Copeland. It was the home to groundbreaking artists including R.E.M., The Go-Go’s, The Alarm, The Buzzcocks, and The Dead Kennedys during its 17-year history.


In 2011, Crush Management (Jonathan Daniel and Bob McLynn) together with EMI Music North America revived the iconic label with the signings of Foxy Shazam and Chiddy Bang.
