26th November 2000 was the date I first launched this website, twenty years ago!
The month before two books and a compilation album on the subject of Creation Records were released but there was still very little information about the music online. I had no plans other than to fill that gap.
The legacy Creation left is probably bigger now than it was in 2000. Back then people thought I was crazy when I stated how amazing Souvlaki by Slowdive was, now critics and fans agree it’s an incredible album. The media in those days chose what we listened to.
“Rave down, hit the ground”
It’s been a while since I updated the site, sorry about that….
These days I present a weekly show on Future Radio. I still play many of those old records alongside new releases, therefore it seems right that I dedicated a show this week to Creation Records.
I know it sounds a cliche but this has been the hardest show I’ve ever put together, I picked out the records that I love and what made the label so special but I could have played so many more tunes and forgot to mention so much music I love. There’s just too many great bands and songs to choose….
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the show below.
If you wanna hear more I’m on the air every Wednesday, playing old classics and new releases. All the old shows are archived on the website. There’s still so much amazing new music released every week, anyone who says music today is rubbish is clearly not looking in the right places.
You can also catch me at the Ride Archives website which you can follow here, fingers crossed for plenty of updates there in 2021.
