The History Of Music

The stuff we like anyway.







Let's face it, music is one of the most important things in our lives. We wanted to form a record label because we live for music and we want to make lists because it's what blokes do. So what better way to spend your spare time than writing about the music you love and being able to add some pictures? Hopefully, this is just the start. We want to catalogue all of the music that has shaped who we are today and tell you about the records that formed the soundtrack to our lives. A lot of that has been released by independents and we are going to start there because some of you may not know about these labels and we think you should. It's important. So, you'll have to wait for 4AD, Subway, Sarah, Lazy et al as we are starting with Creation. As all things do....
Creation Records

What a story! From humble beginnings to Downing Street soirées, from folding picture sleeves late at night to multi- platinum albums, from reckless enthusiasm to disillusionment with success – Creation had it all. Breakdowns, drug addiction, bankruptcy, fights and friendships ... and not forgetting the music. Creation released some of the greatest records you have ever heard. They released some of the worst records you have ever heard. And they released a lot of records you have never heard, but we have and here they are – the entire Creation catalogue revealed for your delight.

Ultimately, we want to expand this website into the most comprehensive study of indie music on the web. So, if you played on any of these records, if you worked on them, or if you have a story about them please get in touch. We'd love to hear from you and get your thoughts recorded. And if we didn't like your record, sorry – we just don't understand!
