This is the first of the smaller sections, in fact all the "I" acts fall nicely into a single post.

A reminder of the notes and conventions used in creating the data:

1. The first rule is that all rules have exceptions, common sense (and my own inconsistencies) may sometimes take precedence

2. Act names - I've tried to reflect the act names as given on the charts, occasionally this is different from that shown on the label or sleeve/cover. If the chart credit is undeniably wrong (e.g. "Elizabethan Reggae") then common sense has been used. An initial "The" from artists names has almost always been dropped, a separator of "And" is usually replaced with an ampersand.

3. Personal names - I have tried to show "real" names of performers where possible, middle names are not shown unless they have some relevance to the stage name (e.g. it would not make sense to show Rihanna's real name as just Robyn Fenty). Where the name an individual goes by is a standard short form of his/her given name (e.g. if someone known as Andy is really an Andrew), I normally haven't bothered showing this. Diactritics are shown where possible, but the software used in compiling the data has difficult with some non-ASCII characters, and the ý in Mýa. I have not shown aritst names in anything other than the Latin script, so for artists whose "real" names are written in Cyrillic, Burmese or Korean for instance, I have used the transliteration as normally shown on the charts. Artists from Northern Ireland are shown thus, rather than being from either the UK or Ireland which hopefully will reduce arguments!

4. Dates of birth/death - Shown where I have found these while checking out other details. Any additional information gladly received

5. Band membership - Normally relates to their hitmaking period only. Changes in personnel before or after this are very rarely shown. Members are normally shown in alphabetical order (but with some exceptions - e.g. Crosby, Stills & Nash are treated in that order) for either the debut hit or the main part of the groups career, with changes usually noted in chronological order

6. Featured artists - This got complex! Where a combination of lead/featured artist ONLY had hit(s) together (e.g. Gotye featuring Kimbra) they are only shown as effectively one act. Where the lead artist has had other hits but the featured one isn't, the lead artist only has a separate full entry. Where either the featured artist has other credits, or both do, both have individual entries. The same (more or less) works with normal duos - for instance Simon & Garfunkel's hits are listed under both Art Garfunkel's and Paul Simon's solo careers.
6a The OCC has sometimes changed the credit shown on the chart during a chart run. In such cases I have tried to use the most inclusive credit.

7. Where a record has been in the charts as both a "normal" A-side and a Double A-Side (whether in combination with a track by the same artist or a different artist), it is shown with separate lines (e.g. "Last Christmas" by Wham!)

8. When a record has re-entered the chart with a different artist credit, I have normally amassed the two together (e.g. "Woman In Chains"). Which artist credit I have used depends on the song itself, and a note is attached showing that an alternate credit exists.

9. Remixes/Re-Recordings/Live Versions used to be charted separately and are shown as different hits, but current practice is for all versions to be collected and charted together, so for any chart runs of such tracks since the advent of the download era are normally added to the original hit version

10. Labels and catalogue numbers are completely omitted

11. EP/LP tracks are shown where known when the chart entry was credited to an EP/LP. If an EP was released on two different CD singles, it is usually the tracks of CD1 that are listed

12. Most of the "bio" information comes straight from Wikipedia (to save time), so there is the likelihood that a number of the entries contain mistakes. Please let me know of any of these, or if there's anything that you think is significant enough to be mentioned. I have tried to keep opinions out of them, and kept references to genres to a minimum as those tend to cause more disagreements than almost anything else. Honours such as knighthoods, OBE's etc. are shown. Oscars, Grammys & Brits are a work in progress and will eventually all be shown, less high profile awards (e.g. MOBOs, Mercury Prize, etc.) are unlikely to be listed unless a particular artist has achieved something extraordinary.
12a Close family relationships between hitmakers are shown where possible, and also in some cases to other famous people (e.g. it made no sense to write even a sketchy bio for Jane Wyman and not mention she was married to Ronald Reagan)

13. Cross-references ("See also....") are a work in progress, as are the marking of US number ones. Expect these to get more comprehensive as the series goes on

14. Alphabetisation - artists whose name is an acronym (and is pronounced as such), e.g. ABC are sorted as if the name is a series of spaced letters (i.e. A B C). All such acts are listed at the start of those with that initial. Where an acronymic (?) name is usually voiced as a word (e.g. ABBA) then it is indexed under that word. Numbers are treated as if they are spelled out, punctuation is ignored. Individuals are indexed firstly under their surname then their given name(s). For some artists, it can be difficult to determine whether a name is a given name followed by a surname, or whether the whole thing is to be treated as one name. In these cases (most of which involve seem to involve rappers), I have tried to use the sorting sequence used for that artist within Wikipedia categories.

15. Where an artist has had hits under two (or more) different names, they are merged (e.g. Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus). With some combinations (usually European production outfits), it can sometimes be difficult to identity which pairings work under which names!

16. Nationalities - I've tried to use the nationalities where people grew up rather than the place they happened to be born. Where there is some difference of opinion I have usually come down on one side of the coin or the other. Large groups are given under the likely most-common nationality (e.g. the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is shown as Austrian, even if a number of them may not have been). Club football teams of the modern era are usually shown as "Mostly British". Anonymous cover version acts may be shown without nationality. Where a country has changed name since the person was born, I have no hard and fast rule about which name to use but hopefully this should be clear either way. Where I know a person has changed or taken on a second citizenship I have mentioned it

Just over 100 I's, so need to split them into batches.

Frank Ifield was one of the big stars of the early 60s, and must have done very well to get 4 number ones in the era of Elvis and the emerging Beatles.

Both Julio & Enrique Iglesias have made several appearances on the UK charts, including both ascending to the Number One Spot.

The only other number one acts in this group - legendary rockers Iron Maiden, the only British Virgin Islander that I know of, Iyaz, and Icona Pop who don't seem to have made the impact their first hit single indicated they would do.

INXS's career was tragically cut short by the death of Michael Hutchence, the Isley Brothers were around for decades but only made the Top 10 3 times, the same tally as Billy Idol's solo career (which saw him much bigger in the US). Imagine Dragons have one of the top 20 longest runners in chart history in "Radioactive" while others worthy of mention include Imagination, Natalie Imbruglia & Chris Isaak, whose best known song is currently in the charts in a dreadful cover version.

Razorlight are incorrectly referred to as 'Razorhead' in the biog for I Am Arrows.

Ice Cube's career started as a member of N.W.A (although I believe most of their hits were after he left, their biggest hit 'Express Yourself' did include him).

'Everytime We Touch' (David Guetta, Chris Willis, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso) is missing from Ingrosso's chart history, peaked at #68 in 2009.

I MONSTER - Dean Honer was/is also a member of All Seeing I

ICICLE WORKS - Chris Sharrock's name is misspelt the second time. He also drummed with The La's, Lightning Seeds, Oasis and Robbie Williams.
Ian McNabb had some solo success.

IDLEWILD - Allan Stewart also joined as second guitarist in 2005.

FRANK IFIELD - Sometimes identified as an Australian, though he was UK-born

IMAANI - Was also the vocalist on the hit by Tru Faith & Dub Conspiracy, but I'm not sure she was an offical member of that act or not.

IMPERIAL DRAG - Roger Manning (Jr) was also a member of Jellyfish.

IMPERIAL TEEN - Roddy Bottum is also a member of Faith No More

INDEPENDENTS - Mike Read was also a member of One World Project

INTASTELLA - Spencer Birtwistle was also a member of the Fall for a while.

INTERPOL - Paul Banks and Daniel Kessler were both born in the UK, though they grew up and formed the band in the US.

ISLEY BROTHERS - The line-up on all the Sixties hits is Ronald, Rudolph and O'Kelly - the other three only joined after that.
O'Kelly died in 1986.

Great stuff otherwise. Especially as looking that up I discovered there's a new Idlewild album coming.

You may want to add that Inspiral Carpets employed Noel Gallagher as a roadie.

Did you miss the Razorlight-Radiohead collaboration, "McBusted" style!?

Will check this one out. He's not on the listing I worked from, will try and see if I can get hold of any primary source to see if he was listed among the others on the (cue-Jameela) Actual chart

Thanks for the continued corrections by the way

Frank Ifield was born in Coventry. In 1965 he made a film called Up Jumped A Swagman. He plays an Australian singer who moves to London to get his big break. This might be why he is seen as being from down under. He sang I Remember You in the movie too. It was his only film. It is on DVD.

I might, but I don't particularly. I'd rather mention that the Isley Brothers employed Jimi Hendrix before he was famous.

Il Padrinos should mention Dave Lee's other aliases.

Intenso Project were a vocal/production group (Ben Ofoedu also sang on Phats & Small's 1999 hits).

Apart from that, great stuff as usual!

He lived in Australia from the ages of about 7 to 22 according to his Wikipedia page

All noted, and thank you too for your continued input.

The Wikipedia pages seem to give several different dates for Stewart joining Idlewild, so I've just left it as vague as I could.

Hopefully all the above amendments updated in main post now, with the exception of the Ingrosso one, I'm still trying to find the correct credit as per the chart, I've seen about 4 different variants so far.

Some remedial work to do on the H's and then the first of three "J" parts tonight.
