The Creation Records Story

The Creation Records Story

From the publisher...

My Magpie Eyes are Hungry for the Prize

The history of Creation Records is equal parts black comedy, tragedy, farce and urban myth — laced with orgiastic quantities of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll. It's the spectacular story of a Glasgow train driver who launched a record label, suffered a narcotic-induced mental breakdown, became a multi-millionaire, has been lauded by New Labour — and, more importantly, discovered and nurtured fantastical, iconic rock bands like the Jesus & Mary Chain, Primal Scream...and Oasis. This is the inside story of Creation Records — and the last 20 years of British music.
