Celebrating three decades of BLAG.
In MUSIC, Sarah J. Edwards and Sally A. Edwards, co-founders of BLAG magazine have compiled some of their most inspiring, humorous and classic music features to date over 400 pages.
Chosen to enthral music fans, inspire artists and simply elicit positive emotion, readers will go on a journey via Sally and Sarah's unique style of interviewing.
Originally published in BLAG magazine over the past three decades, the selection included within the book features important long-form and anecdotal, highly-entertaining interviews with contemporary musicians, many of whom before they became household names.
Within the pages, award-winning artists share rare stories; from the serious and personal to extremely humorous by answering off-the-wall questions and indulging in role play scenarios presented by Sally and Sarah.
Artists share their approach to writing, recording, style, travel, unveiling what makes them who they are.
Sarah J. Edwards and Sally A. Edwards began BLAG as teenagers with Saturday job wages while at art school. Inspired and intuitively driven by the music, they set about bringing stories to fans by alternative means.
They eschewed the critics' approach and created an editorial ethos inspired by late night chat shows. Their interviews became infamous within music journalism networks and artists record labels and publicists often insisted Sally and Sarah be first on the many artist's publicity schedules to "put the artists in a good mood."
In this book, you'll find unique conversation, real advice, striking humour and influence... unlike anything else.
