Alan McGee changed the face of British music when he discovered Oasis in a Scottish club but record boss he now prefers the quiet life.
McGee, who launched the careers of a host of big names on his Creation label, is out of retirement but is running his new venture ‘ 359 Records. McGee, the man responsible for giving us Oasis, Primal Scream, The Jesus And Mary Chain, Super Furry Animals, to name but a few is joining forces with London’s most rock and roll night out This Feeling showcasing the the cream of the crop from the legendary Creation founder’s new label 359 Music.
All the performers are releasing debut albums as we speak and expected to do big things so don’t miss a unique opportunity to witness these four supremely talented acts plus a DJ set from Alan’s friends Vicky McClure (This Is England) & Jonathan Owen (Svegali) and This Feeling resident DJ’s.
Speaking about This Feeling, Alan McGee said: “This Feeling is the best club in the UK for rock’n’roll music. They are doing a great job of highlighting and supporting new bands. They believe in UK guitar music and are doing all they can to get it out there.”
Alan’s autobiography ‘Creation Stories: Riots, Raves and Running a Label’ which tells the story from the early days of the label, Oasis’ world domination to the demise of Creation. That’s in the past though, 359 is Alan’s future…

JOHN LENNON McCULLAGH

With members from Dublin and Paris and influences ranging from The Pixies to Kraftwerk to The Beach Boys, as well as the best in French music (Air, Daft Punk), Mineral have been attracting worldwide interest with their hugely inventive brand of indie/electronica.
