A few months ago news broke* that Creation Records kingpin Alan McGee was set to return to the music business and was preparing to launch a new record label. Yesterday McGee made it official and launched 359 Music which is a partnership with Cherry Red Records. Read McGee's statement on the partnership below:

"Recently I found myself reinvigorated by new music again after being 5 years away from music living in rural Wales, and from which there has been much talk about how I will return to music. As recently talked about in the press, my original plan was to do a deal with major label backing in Japan. But when it came down to it I realised that I didn't want to come back to music through a major music label - that's not what I want to be part of. That's when I had a chat with Iain McNay from Cherry Red and we quite quickly put our heads together and developed between us a much better deal for 359 Music which will be a joint venture with Cherry Red. The first ever person to ever approach me about music when I was 19 was Iain McNay from Cherry Red."

Creation Records was home to MANY influential bands like Ride, My Bloody Valentine, Teenage Fanclub, Boo Radleys, and Oasis, so all eyes (and ears) are focused on what new bands McGee will be signing. McGee is still looking for interesting bands to sign too (maybe someone can also give him a heads up about gmail?):


Check out 359 Music on Facebook and Twitter.

Stream an excellent interview with Alan McGee over at The Dumbing of America - McGee talks about My Bloody Valentine, Oasis, major labels and more, plus check out the trailer to Upside Down: The Creation Records Story below:



*(previous reports indicated the label was going to be named 1153 Records, but it's been changed to 359 Records).
