10 Oct, 2018
The Creation Records boss also discussed the forthcoming Creation Records film
Alan McGee, the man who signed Oasis, Primal Scream and more to the legendary label Creation Records, has said he believes the bands would have thrived if they were formed in 2018.
Speaking to Gordon Smart for Red Stripe Presents: This Feeling TV, McGee was asked how Oasis, Primal Scream and Happy Mondays would fare if they launched today.
McGee, who currently helms his new Creation23 label, also heaped praise on new signings Rubber Jaw. Sent their music by an “ex-mod, ex-football hooligan” friend, he says he was impressed by the band’s “Radiohead-type pop”.
He teased that the label will soon sign “a couple of bands”, including a Los Angeles-based electronic punk band, whose singer is the son of a member of punk legends Generation X.
