Light House presents Supersonic with Tim & Chris Abbot: THIS SATURDAY!

June 29, 2011

Join Light House for a unique film and music event in celebration of legendary independent record label Creation. Hurry and get your tickets as this unique music/film event happens this Saturday!

THE FILM:

The evening will kick off with a screening of the new documentary Upside Down. This fascinating story of Creation, one of the world’s most successful (and colourful) independent record labels, is retold through archival footage, revealing interviews with Creation’s main characters and great music. Founded in 1983 by 23-year-old Alan McGee, Creation was home to some of the most genre-defining bands of the era, including The Jesus and Mary Chain, Super Furry Animals, Ride, My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream, Teenage Fanclub and, most lucratively, Oasis. A decade after it folded, this film tells it all: the successes, the excesses, the drugs, breakdowns, bankruptcy and bust-ups – the whole wild rock and roll history.

This screening will be introduced by former director at Creation Records Tim Abbot and A&R man for the label Chris Abbot, both successful music entrepreneurs and filmmakers.

“The full extent of the debauchery, precarious nature and genius of the independent label is to be laid bare in the most revealing rock’n’roll film since 24 Hour Party People…” The Guardian

‘It’s to director Danny O’ Connor’s credit that Upside Down reaches beyond the mania to reveal the tale’s poignant undertow: what happens to friends when their wildest dreams come true’ **** Mojo

“Believe the hype! The simple tale of a legendary label.” **** UNCUT

THE MUSIC:

Following the film, experience the psychedelic sounds of Wolverhampton’s The Partizan Elektra in the courtyard of the historic Chubb Buildings. More info: facebook.com/ThePartizanElektra

Followed by Creation DJ sets from Tim & Chris Abbot, & Sim Spaceman (Sound of Confusion).

Tickets cost: £6.50 in advance / £7 on door. Box Office: 01902 716055 or buy tickets online.
