Former Creation boss Alan McGee has said he will not be relaunching the label if he goes through with his plan to return to the music business, and will instead start a fresh venture from scratch with some of his favourite new acts.

Former Creation Records boss Alan McGee has said he is considering re-launching one of Britain’s most successful independent labels.
Set against the rolling hills of the Snake Pass, on the outer edges of Sheffield, Smart Art Galleries recently showcased the wonderful abstract artwork of Alex Lowe, the ex Hurricane #1 frontman, singer-songwriter and already established artist.
The event was also a taster of things to come for Alex Lowe’s new creative partnership with the forward thinking gallery, with plans for a Smart Art record label, the joint project ‘The Aquarian Conspiracy’ with DJ-on-the-night Alan McGee, as well as a planned film working with Dean Cavanagh. For Alex and the Smart Art team, which also includes artist liaison Andrew Hunt, gallery designer Chris Mackevych and gallery owner Micheal Mackevych, exciting times lay ahead.

Alan McGee has insisted he feels nothing but sympathy for those whose lives have been affected by the recent fire at the Sony PIAS warehouse, but has stood by his earlier remarks in which he said the fire itself was ‘funny’.
Speaking exclusively to the Live4ever Ezine after causing a bit of a stir this week when telling the BigSound music industry conference in Australia that he had ‘…read that the Sony PIAS building burnt down, I’m probably the only person who thought that was funny,’ McGee said he ‘feels for the people who have lost their jobs’, but re-iterated his dislike for the Sony company itself.
