Sew it up - you're dragging your dress again.
Cinch it up - it's falling apart in the wrong places.
Draw it up - make your intentions plain.
Dry it up - martyrs have no production values.
Tear it up- they could never hold you to it.
Soak it up - you're a paper tiger now.
Live it up - somebody will buy it.
Shake it up - it's anybody's paradigm for the next 15 minutes.
Talk it up - TelePrompTers are cheap.
Lift it up - it's walking too fast for you to stand.
Even it up - it's too precious for them to keep.

I took a break from LJ for a while. And honestly I wasn't here much anyway.|
But does anyone have ANY Sundays news?
What they are doing? Are they dead?
I liked them very much, but there was no way they were popular enough to make the kind of money it takes to never work again.

I guess there really isn't much news to keep the community alive.
But in my vain attempts to scour any info on The Sundays whatsoever, I came across something in the NME (wait. keep reading...) which cites a new band called 'The Like' as a "jangly rock [group] not unlike late 80s British outfit The Sundays."
So my question is, has anyone heard The Like?
Do they deserve this comparison?

How great that there is a LJ page dedicated to such talent! I've been a Sundays fan since '92 and was not able to see them live till '97. Thankfully I attended that show since it was their last tour. It was a difficult decision though since The Verve was playing the same night,downtown Seattle, just down the street! Anyway,hello to everyone!|

|||||"Monochrome" - The Sundays||]|
I know a lot of people look around for Sundays photos. They're hard to come by, but I found a nice Geocities site with several. Some are album covers, but there are some good photo shoots as well.
J'adore The Sundays

Well, here's the first entry. I have high hopes for this LJ community, once I do a bit of advertising. I know there are lots of Sundays fans out there, so I'm hoping that they will join. I've been a fan of The Sundays for about a year or so, and I noticed that (as far as I can see) there isn't a Live Journal community specifically dedicated to The Sundays. There very well may be one out there, but I have yet to find it. Even so, this will be another one!|
I thought that for the first official post, I'd give a nice biography of The Sundays, which will also be included on the information page for the community.
The Sundays are a wonderful band hailing
out of Manchester, England. The quartet
was originally a duo; David and Harriet
met while at university in Bristol. "Staying
up late, talking a complete load of bullocks,
it was great" says Harriet. Both began
writing songs while at university and continued
The two brought friends Paul Brindley, bassist,
and drummer Patrick Hannan on board, and
the Sundays were born. By just their second show,
critics and industry insiders had labeled
the band the "next big thing" and
the Sundays found themselves deluged
with record offers. They eventually signed
with Rough Trade records, home of
indie legends The Smiths.
Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic was released
in 1989 to critical and commercial success.
The album was an exquisite texture of gilded
guitar work blended with Wheeler's
atmospheric vocals. Comparisons were made
to Cocteau Twins, 10,000 Maniacs, and
Lush. The band established a loyal
fan base in England and abroad. They
followed the album with a tour of the states
as well as Japan and UK opening for Belly.
Following their 1990-91 tour, the band stayed
very quiet until late 1992 with their sophomore
Somewhat darker and more serious than
Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic,
the album ventured to explore the
unseen side of life.
Unfortunately for fans, the band disappeared for 5 years
during which there has been a dearth of information.
Harriet and David, who have been together for
over 10 years, recently had a child and built
their a music studio in their own home.
They finally broke the silence with a new
album in 1997 aptly named Static & Silence.
The Sundays followed up a brief tour of the US and
England in Fall 1997. At this time, further
tour plans and releases are not known.
