4.0 out of 5 stars good book, 13 April 2007
This review is from: Alan McGee and the Story of Creation Records: The Ecstasy Romance Cannot Last (Paperback)
I've read this thing twice now. I really do love it - although at some 650 odd pages it's quite the tome. There are so many anecdotes and observations that I could mention which make the book witty and intelligent. At the Creation parties of the late '80s Guy Chadwick apparently got into the habit of taking all his clothes off - Danny Kelly says it was like having Gollum in the office. Haha. Ok - perhaps not so much witty as disturbing, that one. But you get the drift. There are oodles of interviews and comments from Creation bands and staff, and a lot of compelling points are made. It creates a pretty instructive picture of the label and the times more generally. For better or worse I was sort of appalled by the degree of drug abuse going on. I thought the label was a bit more interesting than that. I do have a fairly major gripe with this book, however - where's the discography?!? Wtf. Seriously - that sucks. A work of this size surely needs a decent appendix.

This review refers to the epic tome The Creation Records Story, not this shoddy collection of interviews by Paolo Hewitt, a hack if ever there was one.
