Sun 22nd July: 4 Sarah Records groups in Glasgow!
Posted: Mon Jul 02, 2018 23:23
Timed to coincide with Emotional Response Records reissuing a selection of gems from the seminal Sarah Records catalogue, Not Unloved presents 4 bands who graced the label plus a DJ set by fellow Sarah alumni, The Wake.
Even As We Speak: A rare chance to catch Sydney, Australia's pop geniuses. Not content to fit in with any janglepop orthodoxy, they've incorporated influences as diverse as country and Philly soul. 2017's 'The Black Forest' e.p. was a real joy. It's great to have them back.
Boyracer: Boyracer took any perceived notion of a single 'Sarah sound' and exploded it in a mess of passion and joyful guitar noise. Their post-Sarah output is a vast thing of wonder!
Action Painting!: By marrying frenetic guitars with heartfelt lyrics sung with real feeling and a few nods to The Jasmine Minks and Buzzcocks, AP! crafted some of the most vital music released on Sarah. Sure to be a blast live!
Secret Shine: With lashings of guitars through banks of effects pedals, Secret Shine always whipped-up a considerable sonic squall. But there were lovely melodies, too. Again, their impressive post-Sarah records should be sought out immediately.
The Wake (DJ set): The Wake's wondrous records grace the catalogues of some of the finest independent labels ever: Factory, Captured Tracks, LTM and, of course, Sarah. Expect to hear The Fall!
