The Creation - Painter Man (1993) Retail CD
Rock & Roll
For too long, this skimpy eight-track collection was the only available CD by the Creation, cult heroes of the freakbeat scene. After the brilliant "Making Time" was used in the film Rushmore, several far-more-comprehensive collections were released, rendering Painter Man basically obsolete. However, the casual listener who only wants "Making Time" and perhaps a few more tastes of the Creation's art pop weirdness without too much expense or time will find it a suitable introduction. The brief set begins with the five single sides on which the Creation's entire reputation rests. "Painter Man,"more… a sarcastic response to the Beatles' "Paperback Writer" that introduced the group's sonic trademark, Eddie Phillips' bowed guitar, is every bit as great a piece of artsy power pop as the Who's "My Generation." (The single's flip, "Biff Bang Pow," is equally Who-like; little wonder that Pete Townshend reportedly tried to pinch Phillips as the group's second guitarist after hearing this single.) In comparison to these tracks and "Making Time," the groovy lite-psychedelia of the later singles "How Does It Feel to Feel" and "Life Is Just Beginning" is less unique, but just as appealing. A pair of uninspired Larry Williams covers add little to the canon, but the closing "Sweet Helen," a previously unreleased track apparently recorded by the group's final lineup in 1968, is a small gem of a lite-psych song, with dreamy verses leading into a driving, memorable chorus. Fans of the style are encouraged to seek out the more complete reissues, but this will suit the merely curious.
