So, what’s the story? And does it sound like a definitely or a maybe? (Look, I’m not sorry and there are a lot more where that came from.)
This is the Alan McGee biopic I didn’t realise how much I needed.
“A modern day fable…”, Creation Stories tells the unforgettable tale of infamous Creation Records label head Alan McGee; and of how one written-off young Glaswegian upstart rose to irrevocably change the face of British culture.
The beginning, near bankruptcy, pills, thrills, spats, prats, success, excess and breakdowns; from leaving school at sixteen to setting up the Living Room club in London, showcasing emerging indie bands, from managing The Jesus and Mary Chain to co-founding Creation at 23. Oh yeah and OASIS!
Coming to cinemas soon (no I don’t know when, sorry.)
