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.
I was looking through my vinyl this morning when I noticed a record I forgot I even owned, it is a test pressing of the debut EP from Ride. Scribbled on the label of the 12″ is the date 12th Dec 1989, exactly twenty years ago today!
Although the record wasn’t released until january 1990 I felt the need to share this utterly trivial fact with you. So here are both of the tracks from side 1 of that single. Enjoy! Continue reading

Filmed just before the release of their 1987 Creation album ‘Poem of the River’, here’s a video of Felt performing in Scotland. Featuring two tracks ‘Declaration’ and ‘Riding on the Equator’ with 10 seconds of a familiar track at the end. This video is rather dark but the sound quality is pretty good, unfortunately there is a real lack of Felt on Youtube.
Andy Bell of Ride & Oasis has guested on a new edition of the SPC ECO album. SPC ECO includes Dean Garcia and Debbie Smith of Curve in its line-up.
YouTube does produce some amazing treats if you’ve got the time to search, this latest video was originally shown in the autumn of 1991 on BBC2 and was just a few weeks after their performance at the Slough Festival. Continue reading
