about

There And Back Again Lane – catalogue number SARAH 100 – was the final release on Sarah Records. It picked tracks from some of the 99 singles and associated albums that had led to this point (though there sadly wasn't room for everyone), wrapped them in a 38-page booklet (a pdf version comes with the download) and a photo of Bristol's most famous landmark (the Clifton Suspension Bridge – which, extraordinarily, hadn't featured on any earlier releases, almost like this had been the plan all along), and nabbed its title from a short dead-end alleyway just off Park Street that was mostly full of bins. Adverts in the music press declared that 28th August 1995 – the album's release date – was A Day For Destroying Things, and that the label didn't do encores. It still hasn't.
