This playlist of the first 50 singles on Creation Records has made for a very fine afternoon. Listen and enjoy. Thanks Scott!

i used to have a theory that all of the Creation bands were just Alan McGee and a few of his friends recording under different names. :-) still think Revolving Paint Dream and Biff Bang Pow! were the same.

Definitely seems to have that incestuous family thing going on – so-and-so of this band is also in this band thing. I’m really liking this playlist!! Lotsa bands you’ve put on mixes with some new favorites for me. I can’t remember if you’ve put The Bodines’ God Bless on anything but man, I super like that one.

I have that 45! and I don’t keep many. Most of their early bands puttered out once they got around to making whole albums (i don’t remember ever hearing a full album from the Bodines), but they were great for a song or two. Jasmine Minks’ “Cold Heart” is one of my faves, also the one single from the Moodists. of course, the Moodists disbanded right after that.

Nice! The Jasmine Minks were another one I liked. I can understand the puttering out before a whole album – at least we got some awesome songs rather than none. Pretty intersting-sounding history of the label too from what I can tell on Wikipedia. And I look forward to checking out those videos below, gracias :)

talking about the Bodines got me thinking about June Brides, Aztec Camera and Heavenly.
oh god, bodines rehearsal. looking like a younger Echo and the Bunnymen.

Love bassline to the June Brides song and the guy dancing in the crowd; great up-beat Aztec Camera with some cool dude sunglasses there :D; perfect jangle on the Heavenly, just heavenly; and that Bodines, I just love that song, neat to see em do it, thx for the morning music <3
