By Lovblad on September 2, 2007
Format: Paperback
Excellent book on the rise and fall of Creation Records and their founder Alan McGee. Creation was one of those labels where one would wait for every release. They provided us with My Bloody Valentine and Oasis as well as Primal Scream and many others. As with Factory Records it was the case of an incredibly inspired individual who created a label that would define its time and eventually go bancrupt. While to some degree the records that came from Creation are probably less important historically(Factory had Joy Division!), they may have had a more important stylistic and artistic impact (Screamadelica by Primal Scream, Loveless by My Blood Valentine). However this great book, written by former NME writer Paolo Hewitt is better than his other efforts writing about the Jam or Oasis.
