In this episode, Barney & Jasper welcome the legendary Alan McGee into RBP's virtual cupboard. The Creation Records founder talks us through his storied career, from his school days in Glasgow to the Creation 23 label of the 21st century. 

Reminiscing about the early '80s Living Room gigs he put on in London, Alan describes the signings of Oasis, the Jesus and Mary Chain another great Creation acts. He also explains how Primal Scream got from Sonic Flower Groove to Screamadelica; how he almost signed Teenage Fanclub's idol Alex Chilton; how My Bloody Valentine's Loveless did (or didn't) almost bankrupt his & Dick Green's baby; and how appalled Sony were by Kevin Rowland's My Beauty album after the company acquired 49% of Creation's shares in 1992.

Slightly cheekily, RBP's co-hosts then force Alan to listen to clips from a 2007 audio interview with Alex James of Oasis's Britpop nemesis Blur — except it turns out he never really hated those soft southern Sassenachs in the first place: it was all the Gallaghers' fault. Quel surprise

After paying their respects to fallen pop heroes Wayne Fontana, Trini Lopez and Seeds guitarist Jan Savage, Barney & Jasper talk through their highlights of the week's new "library load ". These include Lillian Roxon's 1966 report on "Music City USA" (i.e. Nashville); Michael Goldberg's 1983 report on MTV's exclusion of Black music videos; Joni Mitchell bellyaching in 1981 about being "written out of rock history"; a breathless 2002 review of Scandi garage rockers the Hives live at London's Astoria, and a riveting Aphex Twin interview from 2003…

Pieces discussed: Creation, Creationer, Creationest, Jesus & Mary Chain, Vile Evil from East Kilbride, Primal Scream, Blur's Alex James audio, Wayne Fontana, Trini Lopez, The Seeds' Jan Savage, Death Discs, Nashville, Wizzard, Patti Smith, MTV, Joni Mitchell, Cleveland punk, Jerry Ragovoy, The Hives, Aphex Twin and Beyoncé.

Scott chats with legendary music mogul and founder of Creation Records Alan McGee, all the way from London on Zoom. They talk about Alan’s role in signing massive UK bands like in the 90s through the present day. He tells great stories about the night he saw and signed Oasis, how he got into the business with his friend circle of Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream, and the night Carl Barât of The Libertines almost lost his eye within the first week of Alan managing them. They speak about the current state of the music business and share rock and roll stories from then to now. Scott and Alan touch base on Alan’s history and where the label is at today, the process of how bands are marketing themselves, and more.

Will you, the listener, take the Chris Moyles Show Podcasts’ hand in marriage? This is exactly the question Producer James had popped to him by his girlfriend Chelsea on leap year day whilst they were away in Porto! You can hear his hilarious reaction on this week’s podcast. Also! We were lucky enough to be in the company of THE man who actually discovered and signed Oasis, Mr Alan McGee who’s in to tell us all about his latest talking tour and record label. It was also the week of the Global Awards and Chris took to the stage with Johnny Vaughan to present the ‘Best Indie’ award - did they finally manage to get their act together this year in time? And it wouldn’t be the Chris Moyles Show without the usual madness - find out what happened when Chris pranked Jack Wood about his Guy Garvey tattoo and why Intern Will got an earful for giving Chris a certain football mug! Have fun listening!
