Over 22 years after its release, Slowdive’s second album is the feature of a fantastic new documentary on Pitchfork.tv.
Last year I uploaded a clip to the YouTube channel that I dug out of Adorable at Glastonbury and was prompted today to post it here after reading a new interview.
Ride played possibly their biggest show to date last night (29th May) headlining Primavera Sound in Barcelona and you can watch the full gig now.
Creation re-released one of the best and overlooked albums of the 80s in 1997, ‘Don’t Stand Me Down’ was the third album from Dexy’s Midnight Runners.
Welsh TV channel S4C have broadcast their documentary looking back at the career of Super Furry Animals this week.
Swervedriver recently toured the USA and two sets were filmed during their trip.
Following their triumphant gig in Oxford last weekend, Ride touched down in LA for a gig at The Roxy this week. Before the gig they played a fantastic session for local radio station KCRW.
Another old piece of bootleg footage to appear on YouTube recently is a track from My Bloody Valentine’s 1989 Reading Festival performance.
Over 300 tracks long, it’s the Creation Records Singles Discography playlist.

Last year I mentioned a Channel 4 documentary about the Glasgow DIY scene of the early to mid-80s and The Splash One night that ran in the city from 85-86. The documentary is now online for you to watch below.
With many of the old Creation bands back together again, I felt I should start a series of posts focusing on some of the other acts from the label, bands who may not be referenced as influences today but still helped to shape Creation Records.

Bob Mould made an appearance on the Letterman Show a few nights ago performing two tracks from his latest album ‘Beauty & Ruin’.
Slowdive’s third album just like its predecessor was completely and utterly overlooked upon release. Some may blame that on Creation who were now focused on delivering hits, but the press were also definitely to blame.
