Alan McGee On Signing Oasis, The Libertines And More

It’s a moment that changed the face of rock history.

It was 1993, and Oasis were booked to play a supporting gig at Glasgow venue  King Tut's Wah Wah Hut.

Brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher, along with Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs, Paul ‘Guigsy’ McGuigan and Tony McCarroll stepped onto the stage and blew Alan McGee away.

The Creation Records boss was in the audience at the time and knew instantly that he needed to add the band to his label, an indie stalwart which had been bought out by Sony in 1992.

Alan - whose story will soon be documented in a new biopic, Creation Stories, based on his autobiography of the same name - speaks about the encounter in the first episode of a new podcast series.

The show, ‘ Helen Wood chats to…’ is a collaboration between the Manchester Evening News and the Big Brother winner, who will be speaking to a wide range of people with a story to tell.
