5. The Sundays – “Reading, Writing and Arithmatic”

ROUGH TRADE : Charted #4 on 21st January 1990

Oh, hello jingly indie guitar! Hey there 6th form common room tape machine.

It’s Newman and Baddiel favourites, Bristol alumni, David Gavurin and girlfriend-wife & pre-Wener indie boy crush Harriet Wheeler…and others, “The Sundays”.

Apparently, the “Reading” is a reference to Wheeler’s home town so I’ve been getting the name of the album wrong for 30 years.

It’s a great slice of indie-student pop with whispy, dreamy vocals and decent singles that scream ‘moody showgazing’.

78% – Although it was before my time, it feels like Halls of Residence.
