[Especial mês do Rock] A história da Creation Records, em 150 singles

Tudo começou em 1983, quando Alan McGee fundou uma gravadora em 1983, após algum tempo acumulando diversos projetos culturais. Bandas como Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream e Oasis são alguns dos grandes nomes lançados pelo selo, que é considerado uma instituição do até então novo indie rock britânico dos anos 1980. O primeiro compacto prensado pela Creation foi “’73 in ’83”, do grupo The Legend!. O resto é uma história que durou até 1999.

Não sei bem se pode ser considerada uma “antologia”, mas o fato é que a própria Creation Records disponibilizou os singles para audição – então deve ter algum critério de organização. De qualquer modo, vale muito a pena.

    Acho que um álbum marcante, no bom e no mal sentido, para a Creation é o seminal Loveless do My Bloody Valentine.

    O álbum é cultuadíssimo, mas embora tenha sido um sucesso de crítica, o perfeccionismo do Kevin Shields o levou a gastar horas e horas acertando os mínimos detalhes das texturas dos sons.

    Como resultado, por mais amado que o Loveless seja, ele causou um prejuízo na casa de aproximadamente 200 dólares à gravadora.
