Music today comes from that lovely band The Sundays (of course) and their debut Reading, Writing and Arithmetic. They haven’t made a record since 1997. There were signs of slowing down from the beginning. It was five years between their 2nd album Blind and their third album Static And Silence, it’s now been 23 years. Singer Harriet Wheeler and guitarist Dave Gavurin, the songwriters, were augmented by bassist Paul Brindley and drummer Patrick Hannan. Wheeler and Gavurin married and had two children and that’s where they have been. Their first album’s title is a play on their home town (Reading). If you like lilting soft beauty and Wheeler’s gorgeous voice then this is for you.
