Creation established itself nearly from the start as an important label for AlternativeRock, with signings such as TheJesusAndMaryChain (who left for Creator/WarnerBrosRecords in 1985), PrimalScream, Felt, and The Weather Prophets. After a disastrous attempt by [=McGee=] to run a Warner Bros. subsidiary named Elevation, the label regrouped in the late eighties, proceeding to swallow numerous {{Shoegazing}} bands such as Music/MyBloodyValentine, {{Ride}}, {{Slowdive}} and Swervedriver, while keeping PrimalScream aboard and singing Teenage Fanclub and The Boo Radleys.

The label's dissolution was announced in late 1999, and its last release was Primal Scream's ''XTRMNTR''. [=McGee=] moved on to his next label Poptones (which popularised TheHives but also folded in 2007), while Foster continued to focus on Rev-Ola Records. A documentary about the label, ''Upside Down'', premiered in October 2010.

The label was formed by Alan [=McGee=] with second-in-command Dick Green and producer Joe Foster, and named after one of [=McGee=]'s favourite bands, The Creation. Its initial purpose was to serve as an outlet for like-minded musicians and bands, in opposition to the "manufactured" SynthPop that was so popular at the time. Funded with a £1,000 loan, the label put out its first single, "73 in 83" by The Legend! (a pseudonym for journalist Everett True), and soon scored a distribution deal with Rough Trade Records.
