About this deal

My expectations may have been a bit on the high side, but it was interesting and informative to say the least. Aquest lloc web rastreja l’activitat que s’hi esdevé, la qual és emprada per diversos serveis amb finalitats publicitàries. Containing interviews with Creation musicians, employees, supporters and detractors, this is the inside story of Creation Records - and of British music since the 1980s.

The book tells the story of flamboyant company founder Alan McGee and the many great bands that recorded for the label, such as the Jesus and Mary Chain, the House of Love, My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Primal Scream and Oasis. After that Super Furry Animals were signed and then one bad choice after another until the label folded into 2000. The greatest book ever written on British independent music' Guardian'One of the best British music books of the last ten years' MojoFounded by Alan McGee in 1983, Creation Records achieved notoriety as the home of Primal Scream, the Jesus and Mary Chain and other anti-Establishment acts.The definitive story of the trials and tribulations, meteoric rise and eventual demise of the UK's most successful and influential record label of the 1990's. Buttons are cool machine washable, but please bear in mind that they will be breakable when dropped. The Oasis bits aside - they're as tiresome to read about as they are to look at or listen to - this is a fitting overview of a label that played a significant role in defining the independent music scene in the UK from the 1980s onwards. It's a bit rushed in the latter stages, but it's well worth a read for anyone interested in the machinations of the music industry. There can be few more complete guides to the subject, and it helps that the book is unpretentious and superbly written with a delicious sense of humour and eye for the absurd.

He threatened to beat up the concierge in his hotel when the plastic door-key to his room didn't work (until he realised he was on the wrong floor).

Saying My Magpie Eyes are Hungry for the Prize is ‘about’ Creation Records is like saying Moby Dick is about a whale. Minus 1 star for not adding 'your door shines like gold from 'alive in the living room' comp, not giving any info on the live tracks, or the radio session (i had to look it up in ken gardners 'in session tonight' book). James Glindemann, 68, said he was about to tuck into a Chinese takeaway lunch on Tuesday at an outdoor mall in Sale, about 200km east of Melbourne, when he was suddenly and viciously swooped by a magpie.
