An Evening with Alan McGee with Guests Cronin

No single label owner had a greater reputation in the 90s in UK indie than Alan McGee. The Scottishman and Creation Records owner signed Oasis, released Teenage Fan Club, managed The Libertines, instrumental in the careers of The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream and My Bloody Valentine. The success of these acts hid the near-bankruptcy at the label, it was a true rock’n’roll output inspired by acid house and chemical reactions.

In recent years, McGee has been writing for the Guardian and has remained releasing and championing new acts and has started a 7-inch label named Creation23. Always an interesting speaker, McGee is coming to the Midlands for one night at The Stables Venue at Smiddy’s, Mullingar for a Q&A conversation with Ronan Casey on Saturday 19th October. 

Apparently he’s signed a new band from Galway so you’ll hear about that as well as his return to management of acts like The Happy Mondays and Cast as well as the upcoming Danny Boyle executively-produced film based on McGee’s memoir with screenplay by the legendary Irvine Welsh.

There was also a documentary called Upside Down released about the label a few years back, the trailer is below.

Also on the night are some special acoustic sets from Midlands band Cronin and ex Dead 60’s frontman Matt Mcmanamon.

Also a DJ spining Creation Records and Alan McGee related tunes till the early hours.

Tickets available from and the venue.

Doors open 8pm.

Show starts at 9pm.
