From the Back Cover
Founded by Alan McGee in 1983, Creation Records achieved notoriety as the home of Primal Scream, the Jesus and Mary Chain and other anti-Establishment acts. During the Britpop boom of the mid-90s, the astonishing success of Oasis brought Creation to fame on the world stage. In 1999, however, McGee announced his shock departure as his label's influence over a generation of British music came to a confusing and disappointing end.
Containing hundreds of interviews with Creation musicians, employees, supporters and detractors, David Cavanagh's controversial investigation has been acclaimed as a landmark in rock journalism.
