Legendary music impresario Alan McGee is on the lookout for acts for his newly-launched label – 35 years after the birth of Creation Records.
The Glasgow-born mogul – whose label’s last release was Primal Scream’s 2000 release ‘XTRMNTR’ – regards the early days of Creation, before they sold a stake to Sony in 1992, as the “real” label.
Thus, the revitalised company will take its blueprint from the original imprint, releasing 7″ singles and under the ‘Creation23’ banner – after his lucky number, we’re advised.
Of his reasons for getting back into showbiz, McGee said: “I want to put out records again. I’ve missed it, there’s a lot of good music around and it feels like a good time to do it.”
And the man who discovered Oasis and put out the first Jesus and Mary Chain recordings, is on the lookout for the next Gallaghers or Reids (though bands without brothers in are presumably free to apply as well).
Bands are encouraged to send submissions to Creation23 via [email protected].
The first act on the label is already confirmed – North Essex outfit Rubber Jaw with their debut single ‘Feeling Funny’, which is out on October 5th.
‘Feeling Funny’, with b-side ‘Bumpy Faces’, will be a limited edition, numbered and coloured 7” with artwork and inserts made by the band. It includes a golden ticket to gain free entry with a plus one to every show for a year. All pre-ordered vinyl will receive ‘Feeling Funny’ as an IG track.
