Sarah Goes Shopping

What do you get when you mix two of the most obscure bands of the 1980s?

Mark of Trixie's Big Red Motorbike joined forces with Twa Toots, and they called themselves Sarah Goes Shopping. I posted about both TBRM and Twa Toots in 2008, and in the comments of those posts the various band members replied and there was also a mention of Sarah Goes Shopping. Both TBRM and Twa Toots made very exciting music, so I was curious. Until recently though, I couldn't find any real proof that this band had actually left behind any music. But here it is!

Sarah Goes Shopping recorded only one 7" EP: Money Speaks Louder Than Words
A1: Money speaks louder than words
A2: Yet another song about 'love and peace'
B1: Living a life of misery
B2: Once I've seen him (Trixie's Big Red Motorbike cover)

Don't expect great sound quality in the songs below; this is as good as I got it.

Since 2008 some more information and music about both bands involved has popped up on the internet. Search for it, it's worth it! TBRM have a new retrospective album out, 'All Day Long in Bliss' which you can buy here.

1. Once I've seen him

I'm guessing you don't have the other two tracks? I'd LOVE to hear them.

Thanks!

No, sorry, I don't!

I was just singing Once I've Seen Him and wondered if I could get hold of a copy.

Thanks!

I'd completely forgotten about Sarah Goes Shopping. Never heard the single (but have just downloaded it) but recall the band name cropping up in zeroxed fanzines of the day.

If anyone's interested (and I hope you'll forgive the plug), I posted the Please Don't Play A Rainy Night In Georgia LP on my blog a couple of months back:

they recorded a single, too. called "ooh love" it was, i beleive, self-pressed. i had to write to them and send them some cash. got a hand-written reply but i think i lost that. still have the single, it's a bit scratched.
