The Sundays

The Sundays were an English alternative rock band formed in the late 1980s, which released three albums throughout the 1990s.

The band’s beginnings came with the meeting of singer Harriet Wheeler and guitarist David Gavurin while attending Bristol University. Wheeler had played gigs with Cruel Shoes, an early incarnation of the band Jim Jiminee. The duo soon augmented the band with bassist Paul Brindley and drummer Patrick Hannan.

The Sundays are part of my UK music-inspired adolescence. We have our Twitter friend Ken Chesire AKA Old Curmudgeon Music Geek, for reminding us of The Sunday’s release, Reading, Writing, Arithmetic 1990, and the great songs by featuring the album on Twitter today. We are negligent for waiting this long to cover the Sundays, yet inspiration comes at the right moment. Wiki can inform you of the three albums, press-shy Sundays band, romance and subsequent Marriage of David Gavurin and Harriet Wheeler, and time off to raise children story. We care little for the low recording output as the quality of the released material is so excellent. We like the short historic window and UK-specific lyric nature of their prose. I love the Wheeler vocal; it lures you in sweetly and keeps you there with depth and maturity.

I met David after their Atlanta concert. We spent about an hour or so conversing. During that time, he told me they didn’t know how long they would carry on. They couldn’t get used to the tour life. It was taxing for them and then their daughter, Billie, who was sleeping on the bus that night. He said they were grateful for the support from fans, but they truly treasured their privacy. Amazingly, he told me all this in Spanish, which is why he stopped to chat with me: “I want to practice my Spanish.” After our conversation, he introduced me to Harriet, who was chatting with fans, etc. He said to her: she’s our biggest fan, in English. I felt embarrassed, but she smiled and signed the playsong list by writing: Thank you for your listening ears. She signed, and David signed. They also went ahead and signed the cover of one of their CDs. I miss them.m, but I’m sure they’re enjoying life.
