The history of Creation Records is equal parts black comedy, tragedy, farce and urban myth - laced with orgiastic quantities of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll. It's the spectacular story of a Glasgow train driver who launched a record label, suffered a narcotic-induced mental breakdown, became a multi-millionaire, has been lauded by New Labour - and, more importantly, discovered and nurtured fantastical, iconic rock bands like the Jesus & Mary Chain, Primal Scream...and Oasis. This is the inside story of Creation Records - and the last 20 years of British music.
