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

1. The Carpenters – “Lovelines”

A&M : Charted at 73 on January 7th 1990 I hate The Carpenters, I hate the way they sounded. I hate the syrupy production and although I can appreciate the stunning talent of Karen Carpenter had, I’m afraid I hated her voice. It bores me.
