Profile:
Bristol-based indie label founded by Clare Wadd and Matt Haynes, following Haynes' involvement in Sha La La. Sarah was the leading British outlet for so-called "twee pop" from 1987 to 1995. Its spirit lived on in Haynes' subsequent venture, Shinkansen Recordings.

Chances are a label like Sarah does not sit very comfortably amongst electronic musics and dancefloor politics, at least for the output. Twee pop! 7" records and Wimp musics for wimp people, very few of the bands used electronics in their music, save for maybe the Sugargliders, Even as we Speak and possibly a few others in their later releases.
The funny thing is all the guys I knew when I started DJing that i bought my records from and played records with loved this label and bought everything they could find off of it.
If you want to know more about the pop leanings of labels like Morr and their friends go squish over, this is the stuff right here. Who else but a bunch of wimps would release a series of their 7" singles dedicated to the bus lines of their town (Bristol) and would spend the better part of an inserts writing worry and fretting over how they would finish the series out without the respective bus line to accomodate it (79 fact fans!).
Sarah closed up shop sometime around the 95-96 and has left a hole that still hasn't been fixed.
