Another Sunny Day – London Weekend

Another Sunny Day was a project for the former The Field Mice, The Hit Parade, Blueboy and now occasional Trembling Blue Stars member, Harvey Williams. The multi-instrumentalist Williams released a series of singles through Sarah Records and these were collected on the album London Weekend.

The album is what you would expect from a Sarah Records release, songs such as Anorak City, which celebrate the twee anorak, enamel badge and fanzine indie scene.  This song has been likened to sounding like Morrissey fronting The Stone Roses by another reviewer.

I’m in Love With a Girl Who Doesn’t Know I Exist is a slice of forlorn love.  This subject matter was very popular in the late eighties and early nineties with indie types. Every song is a vignette of some life episode. This would be considered a bit wet.  The most well known song is You Should All Be Murdered which is widely regarded as a Smithsesque single.

Strangely enough, the second generation twee popsters Belle & Sebastian have a single called Another Sunny Day. The similarities do not end there; Another Sunny Day’s singles artwork featured photos with a strong single tone colour in the background, this became the trademark of Belle & Sebastian’s album art.
