"I want to put records out again...I've missed it"
Creation Records’ icon Alan McGee is returning to the music industry with a new label, Creation23.
McGee’s next project, Poptones, replaced Creation Records in the early noughies and signed acts including The Hives, The Boxer Rebellion and DJ Cherrystones. His last label was 2013’s Cherry Red 359 Music and the project had limited success.
Creation23 will specialise in releasing 7-inch boutique records. Speaking about the aim behind the project project, McGee said: “I want to put records out again…I’ve missed it, there’s a lot of good music around and it feels like a good time to do it.”
The label’s first release will be Essex’s Rubber Jaw with a song called ‘Feeling Funny/Bumpy Faces’. McGee added: “Twenty-three is my lucky number.”
