The Sundays: Sunday's Best

Chris Roberts, Melody Maker, 14 January 1989

Late last year, Chris Roberts stumbled upon the Sundays playing a support gig in one of London's many watering holes. Stunned by their brilliance, he penned a eulogy that made them the goal of every A&R person in the business. Now, with a single soon released on Rough Trade and an imminent tour supporting the Throwing Muses, the band most likely to send 1989 into raptures tell Chris how it all came about.
