Creation Records


25 shouts

Creation Records was a British independent record label headed by Alan McGee. Creation was Founded in 1983 by Alan McGee, Dick Green and Joe Foster and lasted until 1999. The name came from the 1960s band The Creation, whom McGee greatly admired (McGee’s own band was called Biff Bang Pow!, also a Creation song). From the early 1990s on, however, its ‘’ status was severely compromised, since financial difficulties forced it into partnership with Sony, after being nearly bankrupted subsidizing the arduous, two-year long recording of Loveless.

Since the dissolution of Creation Records in 1999 McGee has been running the Poptones label, which has seen a return to the staunchly independent roots of Creation. Most notably, Poptones launched the career of The Hives in the UK.

    Awesome bands but McGee was a prick who thought about commercial success only.

    Dear Creation Records, could you please remove this album from Primal Scream's album catalog? Songs From Northern Britain is an album by Teenage Fanclub but it appears to be a Primal Scream album in my library when I listen to it. That's because of the wrong entry you made at Primal Scream's album page. Thank you!

    actually, the service became "paid". So you won't find it till as long as you do not suscribe.

    listening to the "Creation Records" radio brings me back good souvenirs from the time when I published a indie magazin and interviewed bands like oasis, the verve, pulp or adorable
