The first LP released on Creation Records, is a bit of a patchy affair. Still has some charm and some great bands, The Loft and Pastels tracks are pretty good. Recorded, with varying degrees of satisfaction, on hand held recorders from the crowd, no doubt above the Roebuck pub in Tottenham Court Road, in London’s west end. The club had moved around different venues a little bit before settling in the Roebuck, so not entirely sure that all the tapes were recorded there for this LP.

Not a great LP but a little bit of Creation Records history never the less, and of course after Jesus And Marychain and Primal Scream released debut 7″ singles for the label a little later on, in 1984 and 1985, things went very well for the label for a little while.
