35 years after the birth of one of the most successful and iconic independent record labels, Creation Records, maverick founder and music mogul Alan McGee launches Creation23, a 7” label with just one agenda – “I want to put out records again. I’ve missed it, there’s a lot of good music around and it feels like a good time to do it. Twenty-three is my lucky number.”
Up first is North Essex outfit Rubber Jaw with their debut single ‘Feeling Funny’. Comprising of claustrophobic beats, lingering vocals, weeping digital guitar effects and synthesised basses, ‘Feeling Funny’ is the hallmark of the band’s emerging sound. Inspired by films such as The Man Who Fell to Earth, Eraserhead and Videodrome, the self-directed accompanying video compliments the band’s vision and DIY ethos.
‘Feeling Funny’ and its B-Side ‘Bumpy Faces’ comes in a limited edition, numbered and coloured 7” with artwork and inserts made by the band. It includes a golden ticket to gain free entry with a plus one to every show for a year. All pre-ordered vinyl will receive ‘Feeling Funny’ as an IG track.
