Alan McGee: The Brit Awards Should End

alanmcgee_intAlan McGee, the former Creation Records boss who discovered bands such as Oasis and Primal Scream, has said the Brit Awards should be scrapped.

The annual industry get-together will take place at London’s Earls Court next month, but it seems McGee is one member of the music industry who won’t be in London that night. Speaking to the Daily Record newspaper, McGee said: “They should get rid of the Brits, start again with 20 music journalists who actually care about music getting together, instead of a bunch of self-interested record company people who just vote for their own acts.”

McGee reserved some special attention for Coldplay – a band whom McGee has never hidden his displeasure of over the past decade. On the group’s second album A Rush Of Blood To The Head being nominated in the Best British Album Of The Last 30 Years section, he said: “Coldplay are a dilution of a dilution of a dilution. Chris Martin makes me want to eat someone else’s earwax rather than listen to his records.”

No doubt McGee will hoping Oasis’ second album ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?‘ will come out on top, after it was picked in an extremely insipid category of past winners of the Best British Album alongside the likes of Dido, Dire Straits, Phil Collins and Sade.

Upside Down‘, the new rockumentary chronicling the story of McGee’s Creation label, will be released this spring.
