The Creation - Painter Man/Biff Bang Pow (UK, 1966)

(Planet PLF 119)

Painter Man, a No 36 in November 1966. Both featured fine guitar work from Phillips who was the first musician to use a violin bow on his guitar.

Hermoso simples,una gran banda desde sus priméros días antes de ser "The Creation",en todas sus etapas fueron innovadores y sus shows eran realmente de música,con guitarras con arcos y una postura mod muy pocas veces vista...+10

I think Jimmy Page is still trying to take credit for the using the violin bow first. I think Eddie Phillips was using the bow as early as '64 in The Mark Four.

The Creation merecieron mucho más. Que ni siquiera grabasen un lp en UK es casi increible. Estos 2 singles, Painter Man y Making Time son 2 maraivillas de ese género llamado Freak-Beat.

Yeah...the guys never had what they deserved!

Coincido Pep y RR con sus lineas, una banda rabiosa como pocas con toneladas de actitud y pioneros...

Sem dúvida, uma das grandes bandas mod do mundo!
Uma história engraçada que já ouvi é de que o Pete Townshead teria convidado o Eddie Phillips para ser um segundo guitarrista do The Who! Além disso, que o Pete até teria carteirinha de fã clube do Creation.
Outra coisa curiosa, ouça os primeiros acordes de "Biff Bang Pow" e compare com "My Generation", é inegável que há certa semelhança!

Grande banda que durou e gravou pouco.

Um abraço,
