‘A Story of Creation’ Review: The Man Behind a Crazy Record Label

There’s a poem in which British writer and musician Martin Newell turns the name of a superstar 1960s guitarist into a verb. So:

I’m Hank Marvinned
All we did
with badminton racket
in front of our mirror.

Whatever country you’re in, if you grew up when rock ‘n’ roll was king, you know what he’s talking about.

Alan McGee knows. In the early scenes of Nick Moran’s “Stories of Creation,” a sci-fi film based on a real man’s autobiography, we see him, a sassy Glasgow teenager in different places. 70s, hit a racket while his stereo made one. Dad doesn’t approve.

This hilarious time-hopping biopic recounts McGee’s journey to becoming a rock legend – not as a performer but as a manager and owner of a label. championed with previous artists such as My Bloody Valentine. “I don’t have any talent,” admits the older but not yet wiser McGee, played by Ewen Bremner. The story of how McGee managed to create the wildly successful Creation label – and with the supernova band Oasis, shape British pop music – while acting on his own in a completely different way. contrary to what is accepted by highly effective entrepreneurs.

But for most of the run, the film’s reverb knob is set to high, and what resonates are the “Trainspotting” movies (in which Bremner co-stars; its director Danny Boyle is a producer. here) and “24 Hour Party People” (about another gonzo businessman and his record label).

“Story” has some funny and impactful scenes. But the most interesting thing is when McGee, after sober, allied with Tony Blair. Fun times, as McGee puts it here, “the company disguises itself as a hipster,” can make for a true indie film. Alas, “Creation Stories” only spend about 20 minutes on them.
