I made a reference to the Creation band Pacific the other day and I received an e-mail asking who they were. Unfortunately there’s not a lot written about Pacific on the web. The band is a bit of a mystery, just crediting the song writing to Denniss. They released two singles “Sea Of Sand” (1988) and “Shrift” (1989) and the album “Inference” (1990) compiling those singles. They’re also on the very rare “Sugar” flexi with My Bloody Valentine. All Pacific stuff is highly recommended and worth seeking out. Their 12″ sleeves are really gorgeous. I think they were done by Chromatic Design which has designed most of my favorite Creation sleeve artwork.
Here’s the excellent “Shift” off the “Shrift” 12″ (Creation, CRE 064). It was recorded in November 1988 at Woodbine St., Leamington Spa and produced by John A. Rivers (who worked with Felt, Talulah Gosh, Close Lobsters, Mighty Mighty, The Pastels, Love and Rockets, etc.)
