This event has been rescheduled from April 29th to October 22nd.

Alan McGee is a Scottish businessman and music industry executive. He has been a record label owner, musician, manager, and music blogger for The Guardian. He is best known for co-founding and running the independent Creation Records label and is the man who discovered and signed Oasis.

Join Alan as he discusses his career, the music industry and his relationship with bands such as Oasis and Primal Scream. You will also have the opportunity to ask Alan a question. The night will be hosted by author & broadcaster Rob Fiddaman.

In 1997, the revitalised Labour Party took note of McGee’s accomplishments with Creation. They got him to spearhead a media campaign prior to the General Election in order to appeal to Britain’s youth culture. He was largely responsible for changing government legislation in relation to musicians being able to go on the New Deal which gave musicians three years to develop and be funded by the government instead of having to take other jobs to survive.

Other significant bands that were signed to Creation Records include: 3 Colours Red, The Boo Radleys, Bernard Butler, Heavy Stereo, Bob Mould, My Bloody Valentine, Teenage Fanclub, Saint Etienne, Kevin Rowland, Super Furry Animals, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The House Of Love, Ride, Slowdive. He is currently the manager for Happy Mondays, Black Grape, Shaun Ryder, Cast, Glasvegas, The Bluetones.
