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.”
