Read the full press release and track listing below:

 Many gigs from Creation’s bands are now considered legendary in certain circles so it’s great when some real treasures are unearthed and I’m able to share them.

Below is a compilation of recordings across the UK’s capital between 1987 and 1992. Included is:

  • Biff Bang Pow! at the ‘Doing It For The Kids’ gig
  • Ride recorded on their support slot with The Soup Dragons (which coincidentally was the night they agreed to released their debut EP with Creation)
  • My Bloody Valentine touring Loveless
  • Felt on their farewell tour

Then there’s several recordings from the dark and dingy backroom of the Camden Falcon, a venue I spent many nights in which wasn’t much bigger than my living room.
