The Creation - Creation Theory album review
Action-painting mod experimenters in a definitive box
Eddie Phillips is a genuine unsung hero. As the guitarist in The Creation, he really was one of the most inventive axemen out there. As great as Jimmy Page and Pete Townshend? Quite probably. The Creation, with Phillips at the helm, released a series of explosive singles and an important album in the 60s that utilised feedback and dissonance and introduced the playing of the guitar with a violin bow, a technique later popularised, of course, by Jimmy Page in Led Zeppelin.
