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.

Any News? [Apr. 14th, 2007|09:10 pm]

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?

Hello! [Nov. 30th, 2004|07:25 pm]

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!

Hey, I'm new here. Does anyone know if David and Harriet are still making music now? Also, does anyone know where I can find "Summertime" on mp3?

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

Enjoy.

The Beginning [Sep. 20th, 2004|02:34 pm]

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

after graduating.


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

release Blind.

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.
