Biff Bang Pow! - a name derived from a song by 60s cult act the Creation - was formed as an outlet for the musical aspirations of Glaswegian Alan McGee, the motivating force behind Creation Records, one of the UK’s most inventive independent outlets of the 90s. The band also featured business partner Dick Green (guitar) and despite its part-time nature, completed several excellent releases, including the neo-psychedelic singles ‘50 Years Of Fun’ (1984) and ‘Love’s Going Out Of Fashion’ (1986). The long-playing Pass The Paintbrush Honey and The Girl Who Runs The Beat Hotel offered idiosyncratic, and often contrasting, views of pop, while Love Is Forever showed the influence of Neil Young, notably on ‘Ice Cream Machine’. In the 90s, however, with his record label achieving major success with the likes of Oasis and the Boo Radleys, McGee found less time for his own band.
