Premiere: Sadie Bailey's New Zine ft. Cherry Glazerr's Clem Creevy

In the name of capturing a subliminal layer within cool gig footage, London and LA-based artist Sadie Bailey has given a new meaning to the creation of zines. The story behind her latest, “The Lone Wolves and the Wild Ones,” is one of over a decade of friendship, an ode to her closest schoolmate Clem Creevy of Cherry Glazerr, and we’re stoked to be sharing it here first on Milk.xyz.

Bailey chimes in with a little insight on the gig that inspired the project: “I’ve known Clem for over a decade now, as we both attended Wonderland Ave. Elementary School in Laurel Canyon (LA). I’ve seen her perform a handful of times in different cities, but this was different. This was special. I was in the heart of Paris with a group of people I love more than anything. I knew I wanted to do something cool with the photos I took, but I wasn’t sure what…a few days later, I watched the documentary Punk:Attitude which features a segment on the original Sniffin’ Glue zines and with my father being Steve Severin of Siouxsie and the Banshees, the punk era is something I hold very close to my heart. I was immediately inspired to create my own take on it, so I grabbed my nearest newspaper and started cutting away. Of course, I had Clem’s approval! She’s always been super supportive of my previous work and she even gave me some ideas of what to feature.”

“My favourite part of the zine is you see a picture of us aged 10, in my swimming pool back in LA, and then later you see a photo of us at Mecanique Ondulatoire 10 years later. Each spread in the zine relates to a different story in our friendship.”
Peep the photos in the slideshow above and keep an eye out for the print release on Friday 12/2 via Sadie’s site.
Stay tuned to Milk for more first looks at projects we love.
