    Really good rockumentary. Spending the rest of the weekend with Primal Scream, The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and Oasis. And exploring some new 25 year old finds.

    Interesting look at a very important label. They speak English but watch it with subtitles ... trust me.

    Really great documentary for serious music lovers and those that, in particular, enjoyed the pinkish, alternative scene from England during the 80's and early 90's.

    Some great memories of 90s indie music. Those were the days...

    Without doubt, this is core constituency stuff for me - I followed the fortunes of Creation blow by blow throughout the Eighties with the relatively obscure likes of The Loft, The Jasmine Minks and Slowdive as much part of my formative musical education as My Bloody Valentine, The House of Love and The Jesus and Mary Chain. I once headed up to Kentish Town from Berkshire to see Creation's celebratory 'Doing It for the Kids' concert only to be astonished that there were people who liked the same music as me - the event being oversubscribed. But even I would admit that the story gets more interesting after the Valentines spent all that money on Loveless and a couple of yobbos from Burnage came on board. At the time, I saw the ginger ninja Alan McGee as a slightly gauche figure amid all the trendies but he was as badly behaved as the best of them - coordinating weekend long drug benders from the firm's dingy Hackney offices. There are some great interviews and good footage of the early days plus lots of Alan McGee looking ludicrous in a pork pie hat.

    Although you truly can't understand half of what McGee is saying you'll enjoy it if you knew the bands and have heard the records.

    Great story but the documentary is lit like shit and the sound is all over the shop.

    Jag minns att Göran "Bommen" Bylund hade en Ride t-shirt kring 1990.Om du tyckte det lät det minsta coolt så bör du kolla in den här dokumentären. Tack till Fredrik"Svedda"Svedberg för DVDn.
