Between Hello & Goodbye

In May 2014, Bristol’s Arnolfini Gallery staged an exhibition about the label. As well as displaying various artefacts from the era, Between Hello and Goodbye tried to highlight Sarah’s attempts to mock the sexist and capitalist culture of the supposedly right-on independent music industry – and the vitriolic and contemptuous response of a (largely male) press that missed the point, were annoyed by it, or worried that liking a label with a girl’s name, co-run by a woman, would bring their own masculinity into question. Below is a post we wrote immediately after the exhibition had finished.
