Join ALAN McGEE Co-founder of Creation Records & who discovered OASIS live in conversation

ALAN McGEE is the outspoken, maverick genius behind the mighty Creation Records and has worked with some of the most significant bands of the last 30 years including Oasis, Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine, the Jesus and Mary Chain and The Libertines to name but a few.

Join Alan as he discusses his career, the music industry and his relationship with bands such as Oasis and Primal Scream in a live interview and Q&A, with the opportunity to ask him your own questions.

In 1997, the revitalised Labour Party took note of McGee’s accomplishments with Creation. They got him to spearhead a media campaign prior to the General Election in order to appeal to Britain’s youth culture. He was largely responsible for changing government legislation in relation to musicians being able to go on the New Deal which gave musicians three years to develop and be funded by the government instead of having to take other jobs to survive.

Other significant bands that were signed to Creation Records include 3 Colours Red, The Boo Radleys, Bernard Butler, Heavy Stereo, Bob Mould, My Bloody Valentine, Teenage Fanclub, Saint Etienne, Kevin Rowland, Super Furry Animals, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The House Of Love, Ride, Slowdive. He is currently the manager for Happy Mondays, Black Grape, Shaun Ryder, Cast, Glasvegas, The Bluetones
