About The No Speak Record Label:
I.R.S. No Speak was an instrumental-only imprint of the I.R.S. Records record label, founded by Miles Copeland III in January 1988. Inspired by the success of Peter Baumann's Private Music, Windham Hill Records and Capitol Records Cinema Records, Copeland wanted to feature some of the many excellent rock musicians who had been left unemployed by the 1980s disco and punk takeover of the music industry. He also wanted to take a poke at new-age music, stating in the introductory brochure, "It should be apparent that what No Speak isn't is New Age. No Speak eats New Age for breakfast. Though musically successful the label was not financially viable, and folded after only three years and 19 releases.

Night Of The Guitar 1989
Night Of The Guitar was a live concert album recorded in 1989.
It gave Steve the opportunity to play alongside his peers and a lot of fun was had along the way.
Some memorable moments are when the late Pete Haycock (Climax Blues Band) joins him for his own tune from 'The Deacon' album, 'The Idler' and Steve later joined Pete for his beautiful ballad 'Lucienne'
Sadly a few of those on the tour are now no longer with us so this is a reminder of some great players who made a difference.
