Glass Arcade

glass-arcade-sarah DSC_0019Next on the Sarah Records Tour of Bristol, we went in search of the St Nicholas Arcade.  This location was immortalised in the compilation Glass Arcade.  It was easy to find. and when I got there I set about getting a picture.  Unfortunately the market sellers were so pushy I left before I could get a picture of the glass roof.  So the picture I took is of the outside.

Glass Arcade is a 16 song compilation featuring 10 bands (yes, The Field Mice have three songs on this record).  It was the third compilation and the music press scathingly called it a change to a more mature label.  The indiepop fizz had been ditched.
