The Creation Records Story: My Magpie Eyes Are Hungry For The Prize

£17.99

Product description

This book is in very good condition. The dust jacket, on the back, has very small creases at the top and bottom but these are hardly noticeable. All the inside leaves are clean and crisp.

The history of Creation Records is equal parts black comedy, tragedy, farce and urban myth - laced with orgiastic quantities of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll. It's the spectacular story of a Glasgow train driver who launched a record label, suffered a narcotic-induced mental breakdown, became a multi-millionaire, has been lauded by New Labour - and, more importantly, discovered and nurtured fantastical, iconic rock bands like the Jesus & Mary Chain, Primal Scream...and Oasis. This is the inside story of Creation Records - and the last 20 years of British music.

Oxfam Bookshop Bath

The Bath Oxfam Books and Music shop has been open since 2001. We stock a wide selection of books, vinyl, cds and dvds but always welcome donations to keep our shelves full and interesting. Following our shop refit in 2009 we have a modern, bright and spacious interior where customers are welcome to browse at their leisure. We do not specialise in any one area but often seem to do particularly well with History books and Vinyl. Thanks to the wonderful donations we receive on a daily basis through the door, and from our local Book Banks, we offer our customers a fantastic range of stock both in the shop and online. Please come and see for yourselves!
