About this Event

Friday February 21st ~ An evening with Alan McGee! 🍒 .

Boss of legendary UK indie Creation Records

Story telling, audience Q&A and late night DJ set!

Also live, Shakerfaker

Join us at Cherry on Friday February 21st to welcome head honcho of legendary UK indie Creation Records, Mr. Alan McGee! This is an exclusive experience for fans of the seminal label roster (including The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, the psychedelia of Primal Scream and Oasis!) to hear some colourful storytelling, followed by an opportunity for audience Q&A. Later in the night this charismatic Glaswegian, who partied just as hard as any act on his notoriously hedonistic label, is taking over the DJ decks!

McGee’s role in shaping British musical culture over the past thirty years is hard to overstate. The high school drop-out began showcasing emerging indie bands with his first London club night, leading to management of the Jesus and Mary Chain and co-founding Creation Records by age twenty-three. His label brought us acts like My Bloody Valentine, House of Love, Ride and, of course, Primal Scream and Oasis. Embracing acid house, Alan decamped to Manchester and hung out at the Hacienda, and took Creation into the big time with the release of Primal Scream’s Screamadelica. As he climbed back to sobriety after a drug-induced breakdown at the height of the 90s, he oversaw Oasis’s rise to become one of the biggest bands in the world, with Alan himself becoming one of the figureheads of Britpop. With McGee’s role in shaping British musical culture over the past thirty years, there is much to tell. Such as a now-legendary 1993 meeting in Glasgow with an as-then-undiscovered Oasis, who he offered a deal to on the night...

“I’ll always respect McGee for doing that. He just said ‘fucking go and do it again because you’ve got to get it right,’ – Noel Gallagher (on recording Definitely Maybe)

“McGee was our Malcolm McLaren and Tony Wilson. An instigator and motivator, a born upsetter. I’ve never met anyone like him and neither have you.” Bobby Gillespie

So join Alan as he talks all things Creation & Rock N’ Roll in what will be an up close and personal Q&A. Tickets also include getting out on the dance floor when McGee jumps on the decks. Cherry is now located at 68 Little Collins Street!
