Despite only ever recording one truly classic album the Sundays are rightly lauded as pioneers. An intoxicating mix of fluid mix jangling guitars and Harriet Wheeler’s crystal clear vocals meant that their sound was distinctive. The band notably wrote about British themes including the miserable weather and Wheeler’s vocals were a product of old London town. ‘Can’t Be Sure’ is taken from the aforementioned classic ‘Reading, Writing & Arithmetic’ and pitches an awkward shimmering riff with decidedly artificial drum patterns. Wheeler’s partner David Gavurin throws the guitar lines about like confetti in a seemingly shapeless montage but disassembling the intricacies is one of the songs great strengths. Take time to let this sink in, it should form the bedrock of any serious music fans collection. KD
