Creation Artifact: The Dawn Of Creation Records 1983-1985 - Various Artists

Creation Artifact: The Dawn Of Creation Records 1983-1985
 "When we started Creation, I was twenty three so we made it up as we went along - most of the first batch were mates I had met through my club the Living Room.”
Alan McGee

Creation Records was one of the most important, vital independent labels of the 80s and 90s, born in the post-punk era and progressing to define the Britpop generation.

CREATION ARTIFACT is the first comprehensive box set devoted to the early years of Creation Records. the label was born from a hip London club night and won the plaudits with a string of limited edition 7” singles and a handful of albums – including the acclaimed debut ‘Upside Down’ by the Jesus & Mary Chain.

During this period 1983-1985, the label also issued vinyl by Primal Scream (their debut 45), The Pastels, The Bodines, The Loft, The Membranes, The Jasmine Minks et al.

Housed in a lavish ‘book’ set, CREATION ARTIFACT pays tribute to that seminal period with two discs comprising early A’s and B’s, a third CD of rarities and album tracks, another comprising previously unissued demos and a fifth disc of rare BBC sessions.

Awash with rare memorabilia, a 12,000-word essay from journalist Neil Taylor, band biographies, personal reminiscences and numerous archive finds, CREATION ARTIFACT is the ultimate tribute to the dawn of Creation Records 1983-1985!

N.B: This title is released 25th September 2015 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Complete Albums, Singles and BBC Collection
80s indie stalwarts trading in politically energised guitar pop – a true treasure chest of hooks, riffs and leftist messages.

Hailing from Barking, Essex, McCarthy are today considered one of the standard bearing politically inclined bands of that era, possessed of a broader outlook and wittier, better observed lyrics than most of the competition.

This four disc set comprises the bands three albums (originally recorded between 1987 and 1990), related singles and b-sides, and a sixteen track BBC sessions collection, most of which is previously unreleased.

➢    Albums packaged in mini LP replica wallets, and presented – along with a booklet - in a hard clamshell case.

➢    Contains countless classic originals and classic live sessions versions.

➢    75 tracks, including 3 indie top ten albums and several indie chart hit singles

➢    Also includes 12 songs recorded for the legendary John Peel.

➢    Excellent value and a must have for anybody with an interest in the 1980s’ British independent and alternative scenes or politically minded guitar pop.

McCarthy disbanded in 1990 and two of its members went on to form the wonderful Stereolab. Other members have gone on to work in popular music and the media, and the band often receive exposure from Manic Street Preachers, who regularly cite their work as both beloved and influential.

Please Note: This title is released November 24 and will not be dispatched before this date.
