CREATION ARTIFACT 001 - Pastels/Laughing Apple flexi w/guest Tony Fletcher (author, musician, podcaster)

OUR FIRST EPISODE!!!!

Scott & Matt kick off the first episode of the Creation Records audio fanzine with a discussion of the first of two flexi singles that came with Alan McGee & Jerry Thackray (THE LEGEND)’s pre-Creation fanzines, Communication Blur.

In addition to some digging into the flexi & the zine, the boys interview TONY FLETCHER, esteemed author (bios on R.E.M., Keith Moon, Wilson Pickett), who in his fanzine Jamming, wrote a piece on the state of music in 1982 that ended up being a key piece of Creation origin story.
