Living Room

A lot of rubbish has been and will be written about Creation Records. I've seen film clips and read books and thought: "You're having a laugh ..." You want to put the record straight but there is the danger of coming across as bitter and twisted. And what is the truth anyway? Nevertheless the music speaks for itself. And this performance by the Jasmine Minks, in the Living Room, upstairs at the Roebuck on the Tottenham Court Road one Saturday evening in the summer of 1984 captures a moment perfectly. Thanks to Ally at 'Dusty C90s' for the prompt, to Adam, Jim, Martin, Tom for the inspiration, and to the good friends who were there on this occasion and many others dancing the night away. And let's not talk about the Jasmines in the past tense. A great EP is available on Oatcake Records "dedicated to the memory of two guys very important in the Minks, sadly with us no more. All proceeds from this sale will go to the MacMillan Cancer Support charity." Amen.

  1. Nice one Kevin... I think the "Bitter(ed) Truth" of the early days of CREATION would be a good read.. Thanks
