A Creation Records Special - Inside This Week's NME

By NME Blog

Posted on 17 May 11


In this week's NME...

We're celebrating the release of a new film about Creation Records with a massive special on the label. 'Label'? More like 'rock n roll training camp for lunatics'. We speak to Alan McGee, Bobby G, Noel G, G Rhys and all the rest about the rise and fall of the label that put out 'Screamadelica', 'Definitely Maybe', and that Kevin Rowlands one where he's in a dress on the cover...

Black Lips are mental, right? Noisy garage rock slaggy fuck-ups. Heroes, in other words. And just when you thought they couldn't get any better, turns out they nearly killed Mark Ronson.

Elsewhere we interview Battles and Faris from the Horrors, check out Mona's debut album and Death from Above 1979's live return, and have a chat with the newly emerged Tom Vek...

And we're also down the front at Pete Doherty's solo return. And yes, blood is spilled...

Then there's the gig guide, reviews and all those other little cool bits that makes your bosom swell. Buy it, or we'll send you back in time to be a tour manager for Jesus & Mary Chain in 1985...
