Love this album (and band) so much. They evoke such a unique/special feeling and atmosphere with their songs. So nostalgic, with kind of a hopeful innocence... sigh. No other feeling compares to this, really.
Am reliably informed by David Baddiel via Twitter (he went to school with Harriet and Dave) when I asked what happened to them, that they are still making music and contributed songs to the soundtrack of his new film. This makes me happy.
One of the best albums I ever bought, back in the days when vinyl ruled! I was a Harriett Wheeler groupie for a weekend back in the late 80's - I saw The Sundays at the Portsmouth Uni and the Bristol Bierkeller over a weekend on the South Coast. Also saw their second (I think) gig at the Boston Arms, Tufnell Park, supporting EAT. One of the loudest gigs I've ever been to. Couldn't hear properly for days. Went on the Tube back to Morden and coudln't hear a thing! Ouch! Great times.
