I while ago, I downloaded this from the Take The Pills website...not because I'm a thief, but, because if anything happened to the vinyl copy I bought when it came out originally, I would be devastated...

This is an EXCELLENT indiepop album - up there with the best!!! Originally released on Sarah records (The Field Mice, The Orchids, The Sweetest Ache, Brighter) - if you're a Belle & Sebastian fan/an indiepop fan/someone who is into guitar indie that thinks it's been commercialised you need (that's NEED!!!! to check out Sarah records - Google it...), this has been sorely needing a re-issue for a long time...

This is angst, but, not in the usual hollywood-cliched sense...Harvey Williams (AKA Another Sunny Day) wears his heart - and in some cases, his rejection - on his sleeve for all to hear...

I could write at length about each track...bur, that would make for a LOOONG post...

A couple of highlights for me :
"I'm in love with a girl who doesn't know I exist" - a bittersweet happy/sad acoustic indie song that hits me every time...I wish I could play it to a girl on the X13 bus that I've got a crush on (she has headphones in permanantlly - I can be a bit shy at times, but, how do you get talking when... - I just wish I could somehow play her this song...)

"What happened.." - more bittersweet...about a friend that has seemigly sold out...

"The very beginning" - a paen to a relationship in crisis...

For any indiepop fan, for any fan of honest to the bone songs of relationships, won, lost, hoping for...

For anyone that has a secret crush on soneone...

For anyone in unrequited love...

This CD is a MUST!!!!

Harvey Williams IS Another Sunny Day. This was the name he traded under for a string of adorably jangly and bittersweet 7" single releases for the seminal Bristol label Sarah Records. At one stage he was also involved with not one but TWO other - equally seminal - bands: Saint Etienne (he played bass in one of their first ever line-ups, long before Sarah Cracknell joined up) and kindred spirits The Field Mice (being with them right up until the latter's sad and messy demise on stage in 1991).

His achievements with The Field Mice of course are the stuff of legend, but with his own parallel incarnation the ghost of C-86 and Anorak/Cutie janglepop looms large throughout everything he did between 1989 and 1992.... whilst erstwhile mid-80s influences such as The Smiths ('You Should All Be Murdered'), The Housemartins ('What's Happened To You?'), and The Wedding Present (practically every song - chiefly in the lovelorn lyrics) are also written through much of the music like letters in a stick of seaside rock.

Only five 7" singles were released on Sarah - that's an even smaller body of work than the comparatively prolific Field Mice - but each 2 or 3-track 45rpm was an understated nugget: a melodic vignette of unrequited love, yearning, longing, unfulfilled dreams, dashed hopes and angst - married to a none-more-lo-fi production: just one boy and his guitar, a cheap drum machine and a bit of keyboard dusting, and bob's yer uncle.

The compilation opens with the long-deleted 'Anorak City' (with its intentionally ironic title!) which was issued on a flexidisc.... Harvey uses this as an opportunity to extol the virtues of being a shameless mid-80s jangle-pop fanatic - What's great about 'Anorak' pop is that you can get away with singing ever so slightly out of tune.

Another Sunny Day - London Weekend (Cherry Red)
Back in the day when indie pop really was indie, and pop meant more hooks than a fisherman's hat, Another Sunny Day were signed to the legendary, and wonderfully twee, Sarah Records. The brainchild of Harvey Williams, Another Sunny Day were a perfect example of the heart-on-sleeve, lovelorn, jangly pop groups that thrived in the `80s. Williams' songs were bittersweet paeans to all the girlfriends he never had and all the relationships that somehow never materialised - Morrissey wrote the book and a host of admirers added their own chapters.

Titles like 'I'm In Love With A Girl Who Doesn't Even Know That I Exist' and 'I Don't Suppose I'll Get A Second Chance' are self-explanatory; `The Very Beginning' a dissection of a crumbling relationship. If you're keen on bands like Belle & Sebastian then Another Sunny Day should certainly be investigated without delay, as should most of the Sarah Records catalogue. 7/10.

AMAZING! 4 Nov 2011
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"London Weekend" by Another Sunny Day is one of those rare beauties of the "Indie Rock" genre back in the 90's given to the world by in my opinion the best record label ever Sarah Records. This is Harvey Williams at his best, and the best it is. I can go on about how amazing track number 1 "Anorak City" is and how remarkable track number 8 "You Should All Be Murdered" is, but i simply don't have the time. If anybody out there is interested in listening to "real music" then "London Weekend" by Another Sunny Day is your choice.
