starting life as a schlocky, punky ensemble, the rainy days recorded a couple of eps in a decade – with a huge number of contributors flowing in and out of the band, before settling on a more melodic configuration in the early 00s. their excellent ‘spungomummagummabyllybeef+microchips’ anthologies compiles a substantial amount of unreleased material from their earlier period, and is a fine place to start with such an eclectic band.
