Gallagher mourns demise of Creation

Noel Gallagher wishes he was still signed to Creation records.

The 43-year-old musician was signed to the iconic indie label with his band Oasis – who went on to become one of the UK's biggest bands – and is upset at the label's demise in 2000 because he thinks modern record companies offer a very different environment.

He said: "People now invest in the product and music isn't about that. I think if you asked any single band now, we'd all love to be back on Creation, not because we don't get artistic control, anywhere else, but it was a great atmosphere to make music and talk about what was possible."

He also lamented the fact most of the people who used to work at the label, founded by notorious industry figure Alan McGee, don't enjoy the jobs they have subsequently gone on to have.

Noel added: "I bump into some of the girls [who use to work there] now and again, they're all doing the same thing but for record labels they don't like for bands they don't believe in. They've all got jobs now."
