In the early ’80s no U.S. label was pumping out New Wave music emanating from the underground as ferociously as IRS Records. Bands as diverse as The DAMNED, The BUZZCOCKS, The FALL, The POLICE, ALTERNATIVE TV, CHELSEA, The CRAMPS, The FLESHTONES and many others got their starts on this forward-looking label. This episode features a solid 2xLP compilation released by IRS in 1981. Get hip to the new sound of 30 years back, fellow music geeks!
