Bananarama: Really Saying Something by Sara Dallin & Keren Woodward
Hand Signed by Sara Dallin & Keren Woodward
Hardback 1st Edition
New & Unread - Published 2020
Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward met in the school playground when they were four. They became international stars, first as a trio, then, for almost three decades, as a duo.
After finishing school, Sara studied journalism at the London College Of Fashion, while Keren worked at the BBC. They lived in the YWCA before moving into the semi-derelict former Sex Pistols rehearsal room and immersing themselves in Soho's thriving club scene. A year later they teamed up with Siobhan Fahey to form Bananarama. A string of worldwide hits followed, including 'Cruel Summer', 'I Heard a Rumour and 'Venus'. In a male-dominated industry, they were determined to succeed on their own terms and inspired a generation with their music, DIY-style and trailblazing attitudes.
Narrated with humour and authenticity, and filled with never before seen photos Really Saying Something takes us from the early days to the world tours, to party games with George Michael, a close friendship with the Prodigy's Keith Flint, hanging out with Andy Warhol in New York and a Guinness World Record for the most worldwide chart entries of any all-female group. As well as the highs, Sara and Keren speak frankly bout the flip side side of fame, revealing their personal struggles and the challenges of juggling family life with a demanding professional schedule. Really Saying Something is the story of two friends who continue to pursue their dreams their way - and have a great time doing it. It is a celebration of determination and a lifelong friendship, with an unbeatable soundtrack.
