Unsurprisingly, Oasis picked up an award at last nights Brits for the best album of the last 30 years with ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’.

The rather fantastic Vollwert-Records label continues its series of very limited early Creation releases with the re-pressing of Apple Boutique’s 1987 single ‘Love Resistance’. For those of you who don’t remember Apple Boutique, they were fronted by Phil King who later played bass in Felt/Lush/Jesus & Mary Chain. Continue reading
I have finally got round to putting together a large proportion of the Creation related videos on YouTube into one place. These can be viewed by visiting http://www.youtube.com/creationvideo. I’ll keep adding more, however many videos are missing as those strange people at Sony don’t seem to like people actually watching/enjoying any of the stuff they “own” so many have been deleted. This all seems rather strange to me as a decade ago they would have paid a fortune for short slot on The Chart Show, but as they say “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”. Despite this there’s plenty of hours viewing….. including some rarities from the like of The Diggers, Ultra Living, Trashmonk, Technique, A Certain Ratio, Hypnotone, Heavy Stereo, Silverfish and JC Brouchard with Biff, Bang, Pow! alongside the usual acts you’d expect.
