2. Sunhouse were a Belgian progressive rock and jazz fusion band that recorded one self-titled album, in 1977. http://youtu.be/x61yOjiQkOo

3. Sunhouse was a short-lived Nottingham based band, consisted of Gavin Clarke (vocals), Paul Bacon (guitar), Robert Brooks (bass) and Dominic Dillon (drums).

Songwriter Gavin Clarke originally met film director Shane Meadows when both were working in dead-end jobs at the Alton Towers leisure park. Several years later, Meadows contacted Clarke to provide songs for the soundtrack to his acclaimed low-budget film, Small Time. Clarke quickly formed a band for the work, recruiting guitarist Paul Bacon and two former members of indie band the Telescopes, bass player Robert Brooks and drummer Dominic Dillon. The band signed a contract with Independiente Records and completed further soundtrack work for Meadows feature-length debut, Twenty-Four Seven. The limited edition Small Time EP and single “Monkey Dread” introduced the band’s full-length debut, Crazy On The Weekend, released in 1998. Working with producer John Reynolds (Sinéad O’Connor), the band continued their practice of recording outside a studio environment.

    a friend got me a copy of their album after saying its one of his favorite of all time.........after listening to it I had to agree, and absolutely stunning album. Must have been a real pleasure to have seen them live.

    It's soooo good to hear and see other peeps that appreciate the might of Sunhouse. I've loved this album ever since it came out. It truelly has lasted the test of time, becoming one of the best albums ever created. In fact, it makes it that much better that they split up almost straight after releasing it...makes it more enigmatic...even the extra tracks on the singles are bloody marvellous! They

    saw them in '98 supporting Bernard Butler at the Shep Bush empire. Amazing performance. So glad I saw em. Swing Low gives you goosebumps. Mojave 3 also supported that night! Lucky with the line-up!

    Anyone else see any similarities between Crazy on the Weekend and Damien Dempsey's Seize the Day albums? Both produced by John Reynolds, have Sinead on backing vocals, are mostly acoustic except for the penultimate song, and have uncredited final songs?
