My Secret World: The Story of Sarah Records

Tuesday, 14 February 2017 - 7:45pm
 
In order to whet your appetites for the gig later in the week featuring the terrific Glasgow band The Orchids, we're showing The Story of Sarah Records, a great and rarely-screened documentary on the legendary indie-pop label that put out all The Orchids records in their initial early 90s run and has turned into a genuine worldwide cult in the years since its demise.
 
My Secret World: The Story Of Sarah Records is the first feature length documentary to explore this influential and often misunderstood label. Now the label founders, former Sarah band members, music critics and those that have been inspired by the label tell their story.
 
 
Ethics and passion in their purest form. Welcome to the world of Sarah Records, active between 1987-1995, and possibly the most indie of all indie labels. This is a documentary where principles prevail and attitude and actions are just as important as the music. Heroics and belligerence, ephemeral-eternal-pop, fanzines and the incorruptible founders Clare Wadd and Matt Haynes. Their inspirations, the records, the bands, the letters, the long list of journalists that detested Sarah, the fans that love Sarah...The defiance and determination of our founding duo and and their final declaration. Their focus on something that was non-commercial and exciting, as if music could change lives and mean SOMETHING. My Secret World is a resounding reminder that music doesn’t need to be about posturing, production or money to be an outright success.
 
 
Directed and funded by Lucy Dawkins, My Secret World was four years in the making, includes new interviews with many of the artists involved in the label and archive footage and photographs donated by fans.
 
Doors open for this exclusive screening at 7.45pm on Tuesday 14th February 2017. Entry is just £2.50 on the door.
