Building on the jangly guitar pop of the Smiths and the trance-like dream pop of bands like the Cocteau Twins, the Sundays cultivated a dedicated following in indie rock circles, both in their native England and in America, in the early '90s.How did the Sundays form?
The Sundays formed in the summer of 1987 in London, England. Originally, the group consisted of vocalist Harriet Wheeler, who had previously sung with a band called Jim Jiminee, and guitarist David Gavurin. After the duo had written several songs, they added a rhythm section, featuring bassist Paul Brindley and drummer Patrick Hannan.What happened to remember the Sundays?
Remember the Sundays, the boot-wearing college rock darlings from London, England? At the height of the alternative scene in the 1990s, they were adored by fans all over the world, some of whom carried a huge crush on lead singer Harriet Wheeler, but the group never quite seemed to cross over into the mainstream.How successful was the Sundays on Sunday tour?
The tour was considered successful, although it was not without some mishaps; a London show had to be rescheduled due to Wheeler losing her voice and the group experienced some amusement when a Dallas, Texas, show was advertised with the slogan "See The Sundays on Sunday with ice-cream sundaes".
