Exclusive! The return of Creation Records: Alan McGee speaks to us
Creation Records is to return. Whether it’s as Creation Records or another name is yet to be decided, but the label set up is all there and more importantly the will power to do something.
Alan McGee has been in touch with Louder Than War with the following statement…
‘Since spending the summer helping curate Tokyo Rocks for next year it’s made me realise I do still love it! It was when I was flying back from Japan with the Primals that started me loving it again. I have to finish the edit to my film Kubricks and deliver the book I have signed up for but to be honest I am now seriously thinking about restarting Creation, or maybe call it something else if I can find the right people at a label to work with. Music needs a kick in the balls, and I have got the music buzz back again after working on Tokyo Rocks..’
This is great news.
The music biz has become a dour place in the past couple of years. There have been great bands but no mavericks, no one offs. The only person you can name who works in the music business is Simon Cowell and that tells a sad truth all of its own.
It will be interesting to see where Alan goes with this but one thing is guaranteed. it’s going to be a great trip.
Whether it’s called Creation Records or not (and we think it should be called Creation) it’s going to at least focus mainstream interest onto a great underground of bands who have the potential to crossover but not much help at the moment.
