Let's talk about Creation Records, that titan of British music from 1983 to 1999 that basically was responsible for both the shoegaze movement and bringing Oasis to the masses. How can one label be that diverse? Because of its founder - Alan McGee.
Over nearly three hours, I'm going to walk you through the rise and fall of Creation, cover a bunch of bands you should know as well as a bunch that you've likely never even heard of. Don't feel bad - a lot of them I'd never heard of either, and I like to think I know a decent amount about music.
As this is a scene show, and we're nearing the end of the month, I ran this right up to the maximum amount of show I can do for the month, so I'm taking next week off, and I'll be back in two weeks time.
If you still want a show next week, consider signing up for our Patreon, as there will be a new show there next Monday, which you could have access to (as well as all our old Patreon shows) for just $5 a month. Something to consider.
But for now, let's get into Creation Records with another scene show/deep dive!
So next week, I'm going to do a scene show on Creation Records, but this week, I've got about an hour of deep seeded electronic and then an hour of all sorts of things that are zigging and zagging around in my brain. Enjoy!
So apparently I need to find a way to pay better attention to when bands I like release albums, because I seem to keep missing them. But I've still got lots of tunes to keep you folks drowning in the sound.
Also, we mourn the passing of two very talented musicians, one of whom also happened to be one of the biggest assholes in music as well. (Don't go around slagging other people, no matter how good you are, all I'm saying.)
Remember to support the Patreon if you want 4 additional shows each month, for just $5/mo.
Fun show this week, including some odd flashback songs, plus loads of new stuff, including the brand new single from Wingenfelder!
