Just as cities have their scenes, sometimes there is a single record label that can define a genre or a place. In the ’80s and ’90s the place was England and the record label was Creation. Founded by Alan McGee in 1983 the label went on to promote iconic British acts including Primal Scream, Oasis, The Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine until it collapsed in 2000. Now, the story of the sound, and the world of football, drugs, and yes, rock ‘n’ roll, that surrounded it is coming to theaters in 2010 with ‘Upside Down’ from Document UK. Here’s hoping it will be as good as those other British music films of the naughties — 24 Hour Party People, the story of Manchester’s Madchester scene and Factory Records and ‘Live Forever‘ the Britpop doc.
Check out the official trailer at the Creation Records blog.
