 The Orchids   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Orchids first hooked up with Sarah's Matt Haynes and Clare Wadd just as the label was getting underway in 1987, and so The Orchids' debut single, 1988's "I've Got a Habit," was only the second Sarah release.
The Orchids' early singles were successful enough that simultaneous to the release of their third 7", "What Will We Do Next," in September 1989, Sarah released the label's first-ever album, the 10" Lyceum, a lengthy eight-track EP that, consistent with Sarah's value-for-money ethic, contained no songs that had previously appeared on singles.
The Orchids' next single, 1990's "Something for the Longing," is possibly the group's all-time high point, a gently yearning lost love song with a gorgeous chorus.

The Orchids didn't seem to fit in to the Sarah scene, the irony of course being that the Orchids fitted perfectly with the Sarah scene because Sarah was never about scenes and was always about being bloody minded and standing up and just beingĀƒ well, just BEING really.
