The Creation Records Story: My Magpie Eyes are Hungry for the Prize by David Cavanagh / ISBN 9780571362530 / 752-page paperback published by Faber / 2023 edition of the 2020 book


'The greatest book ever written on British independent music'--Guardian

'One of the best British music books of the last ten years'--Mojo

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 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 interviews with Creation musicians, employees, supporters and detractors, this is the inside story of Creation Records - and of British music since the 1980s.
