Creation Records on the way back?

Creation Records on the way back?

Alan McGee has indicated that he might revive the legendary Creation label in the near future.

The record company gifted the world the likes of Teenage Fanclub, Super Furry Animals, Primal Scream, Oasis and My Bloody Valentine.

McGee founded Creation in 1983, but the label was wound up in 1999. A documentary about its glory years, Upside Down, was released in 2011.

McGee told Louder Than War today: "Since spending the summer helping curate Tokyo Rocks for next year it’s made me realise I do still love it! It was when I was flying back from Japan with the Primals that started me loving it again.

"I have to finish the edit to my film Kubricks and deliver the book I have signed up for but to be honest I am now seriously thinking about restarting Creation or maybe call it something else if I can find the right people at a label to work with. Music needs a kick in the balls and I have got the music buzz back again after working on Tokyo Rocks.."

McGee previously indicated a return to the record business was on his mind in May, when he revealed that investors in Japan wanted to fund him for some A&R work.

McGee famously quit the music industry after winding down his last label, Poptones, in 2007.
