Oasis in Creation Records Upside Down video (now available)



LONDON - Long video featuring Oasis in Creation Records Upside Down documentary movie, there's some rare Oasis stuff. If you watch the full movie, even if your mother tongue is the English language it can be very difficult to understand (Scottish and various accents). Also featuring BP Fallon, Anita the girl on Wonderwall, Alan's wife Kate Holmes, etc. 
Some other questions to Alan: 

Why do you think Creation Records became as iconic as it did and what do you think helped it become part of Rock 'n' Roll history?

Maybe because we didn’t, deep down, care. I was never that into music I just didn’t want a real job so when you don’t care you win.

Congratulations on the film Upside Down, looks great. On a personal level what does it mean to you to see your Creation stories on the big screen?

The film is great – I am pleased with it, but it’s in the past, it’s not where I am at anymore. But at least it represents what we were all like in the 90s so in that respect the film-makers got it right.

Having a look at some of your previous interviews I notice the same topics and questions usually crop-up – Oasis and Noel, Primal Scream etc. You’ve actually said in the past that you don’t go for nostalgia, you like to live in the now. Considering this, can interviews be a bit of a drag and repetitive some times?

It is what it is. The interesting thing about all the bands you talk about - the Primals have never been better. Literally I saw them in Cardiff and it was mind blowing. I really like Beady Eye, although I know some people don’t agree, and the Noel demos are great so can’t wait to hear the finished album. These bands are still doing it and have a big audience, I live in Wales so really I barely see anybody, but the film was good as it made me realise you are only ever as good as the groups you put out, and I put out some great ones so they make me look good in a historical way.

So not to disappoint on that score, regarding Noel, you’re one of the lucky ones to hear some of the tracks early. Do you think this is the start of another great chapter for Noel as a solo artist?

I hope so, the demos are raw – I hope he keeps some of that edge when he releases music. He has the tunes.

Am I right in saying you used to be a clerk at British Rail? Do you still use the trains and what do you think to our current train system in the UK these days?

I love trains. I find planes boring, but I really love trains; where I live in Wales it’s three hours to London and the journey by train I still love.

Once Poptones had finished in 2007, did you worry about what you wanted to do next or was the idea all along to just quit and give the industry up altogether?

I got bored, I was 47 and when you have nothing left to say, fuck off to Wales and leave the city.

I know you are officially retired from the business, but have you ever thought about another venture ever? Make the big comeback into the industry at all?

No I hate the music business, I only did it because I was good at it so I made millions, its full of cunts.

Do you think it was inevitable the way Oasis eventually split up?

No I just think it went down the way it went down. I actually love them both in really different ways Liam is very warm hearted and Noel is very loyal, they are both good men.
