The Peace & Freedom Magazine Sarah Records Interview
Interview with Clare of Sarah Records in 1989 by Paul Rance.
How did you start up the label?
The label was set up about two years ago. Both myself and Matt had previously been involved with fanzines/flexis, and in particular had both been involved with Sea Urchins flexis. I put out "Cling Film" and Matt was involved with "Summershine"... so, having decided to set up Sarah together, the wee Urchins were the obvious choice for our debut releases. And so it went on.
Bands on your label?
Well, on the whole, we don't know that much about them, but I'll tell you what I do know.

Bands to watch out for?
The Sea Urchins, I guess.
Joys and tribulations?
The major joy is the letters we get. If we didn't get such a wonderful response from the people who buy the records, then there wouldn't seem any point to it all, and I don't suppose we'd do it. That's really what makes the whole thing worthwhile. Also, of course, things like getting a new demo tape that's absolutely wonderful, and hearing the new stuff the bands on the label record for us. Tribulations? Printers [and then a list of bands, a joke, I think/hope?! -Ed.]
