Clare Wadd and Matt Haynes: In Conversation

Saturday 03 May 2014, 15:30

In conversation with Sarah Records founders Clare Wadd and Matt Haynes.

Operating at first from a telephone-free basement at the top of Blackboy Hill and then from a house overlooking Bedminster station, Sarah Records released 100 7" pop singles between 1987 and 1995. Clare Wadd and Matt Haynes, the label's young founders, then took out adverts in the music press headed 'A Day For Destroying Things' announcing that the label was over and that they didn't do encores.

Since then, Sarah has acquired almost legendary status around the world, and is now the subject of both a documentary - My Secret World, made by filmmaker Lucy Dawkins - and a book,Popkiss: the Life and Afterlife of Sarah Records (forthcoming from Bloomsbury). 

Join us for a discussion with the founders of the label.

This event is free to ticket holders of the Saturday night event.
