The Wedding Present
Going, Going…

Could you have ever imagined that in 2016 there'd be a new Wedding Present album? They have seemingly been content to rest on their nostalgia laurels over the past few years but they show that there is some fire still there with this 20 track album of linked songs which begins with four instrumentals.  "Some things just don't change" sings David Gedge on 'Bear' and he's still wittering on about break ups and relationships and stuff like that but there's nothing here that suggests that this won't appeal to long term fans. 

The Wedding Present
大丈夫だよ、飛び込んでおいで

Our Japanese isn’t up to much but Google tells us that  大丈夫だよ、飛び込んでおいで means “It’s okay, come in”. We're taking that to mean “Jump in, the water’s fine” in the case of this Japanese released edition of the Wedding Present single. The 7” is limited to 300 copies and features a spoken word Japanese intro by David Gedge himself.

The Wedding Present
George Best

The ever-prolific pioneers of UK indie, The Wedding Present, are embarking on an extensive reissue campaign, releasing five albums, two compilations and an EP from the band’s ‘80s and 90’s output, all of which are expanded multi-disc sets crammed with bonus material, extensive sleeve notes, art work and general Weddos emphemera. Most synonymous for their familiar depiction of relationships using acerbic wit, frontman David Gedge is a virtuoso when it comes to the bittersweet love song. Originally released in 1987, ‘George Best’ was the anticipated debut album by The Wedding Present, and saw the band do what they do best: create perfectly primitive, high-energy guitar-pop music about love and heartbreak. Lyrically some of Gedge’s most simple but much-loved songs; ‘George Best’ helped to create the Wedding Present’s definitive nuanced sound, and maintained their status as pillars of jangle pop. 

The Wedding Present
Marc Riley Sessions Volume 4

Here we have Marc Riley Sessions Volume 4 by Leeds indie legends The Wedding Present. Of the nine songs that make up the latest installment, they go all the way back to tracks from their debut album, George Best to early singles collection, Tommy, up to recent single Jump In The Water’s Fine. On Hatch Records.

The Wedding Present
Tommy 30

30 years on from its original release, the Wedding Present have re-recorded Tommy. At the time it was something of the less loved younger sibling to their their debut proper, being that it collected a selection of their early singles. The new recording shows how the band have grown and evolved, and deliberately conceives of them as belonging to one release.

The Wedding Present
Marc Riley Sessions Volume 3

The Wedding Present certainly get on with Marc Riley: he has brought them in for sessions on numerous occasions over the years, and this release collects tracks from some 2015 and 2016 sessions. Some Present classics, plus a fetching cover of the Nancy Sinatra Bond theme ‘You Only Live Twice’. Marc Riley Sessions Volume 3 is released by Hatch Records.

The Wedding Present
Huw Stephens Session

Twelve years ago Leeds (or Otley as I once heard Dave Gedge specify at gig once) favourites The Wedding Present recorded four covers for Huw Stephens’ One Music radio show. One of them is Take That’s Back For Good.  Here’s Huw Stephens Session for your delectation on 10” vinyl EP or CD.

The Wedding Present
The Home Internationals EP

The Home Internationals EP by Leeds legends The Wedding Present contains four instrumental pieces. The EP kicks off with Wales from the band’s most recent album Going, Going...Spurred on by this track, and using the name of the old international football competition between the four home nations, David Gedge utilised his love of pop, rock, film scores and football as inspiration to create a further three instrumentals.

The Wedding Present
Marc Riley Sessions Volume 2

The time is nigh. For those who bought 'Volume One' last year the wait is over. Here we can present ageing indie strummers Wedding Present delivering a second volume of their Marc Riley sessions. This contains songs from no fewer than 8 of their studio albums plus the usual murder of a classic  - this time it's the turn of the Monkees 'Pleasant Valley Sunday'. 

The Wedding Present
George Best 30

An interesting exercise here from The Wedding Present: with a play-the-whole-album tour fresh in their recent past and a Steve Albini-manned studio to play with having wrapped on new album El Rey, the group decided to record a live-in-the-studio version of classic debut album George Best. And so they did! This new version is punchy and energetic, and arguably closer to the Present’s original vision… On Scopitones.

The Wedding Present
Live 2007

Imagine the scene. You’ve waited a lifetime for the Wedding Present to play ‘George Best’ in its entirety and it’s finally happening. You and thousands of others are baying for the band to take the stage and then you hear…..”Oh why do you catch my eye, then turn away?”. It’s the greatest moment of your life and you can now relive it with this marvellous CD which captured the sounds the smells of the Wedding Present live in 2007.  

The Wedding Present
Tommy

The ever-prolific pioneers of UK indie, The Wedding Present, are embarking on an extensive reissue campaign, releasing five albums, two compilations and an EP from the band’s ‘80s and 90’s output, all of which are expanded multi-disc sets crammed with bonus material, extensive sleeve notes, art work and general Weddos ephemera. Most synonymous for their familiar depiction of relationships using acerbic wit, frontman David Gedge is a virtuoso when it comes to the bittersweet love song. Originally released in 1988, 'Tommy' is a compilation that gathers the first four singles of The Wedding Present, a long with their B-sides and selected tracks from two early radio sessions, providing a comprehensive overview of the band's familiarly fast-paced, lo-fi output prior to their debut LP 'George Best' in 1987.
