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
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
Jump In, The Water’s Fine

The first new material since 2017 from Godlike indie legends, the Wedding Present, comes in the form of a two track single. The band commissioned Darren Hayman of Hefner to do the artwork for Jump In, The Water’s Fine. The two tracks see the band experimenting with a heavier bass sound and some a cappella vocals.

The Wedding Present
Go Out And Get 'Em Boy!

Here we have a reissue of The debut single by The Wedding Present. Go Out And Get ‘Em Boy! Was the track that introduced the world to the Leeds band’s frenetic jangle. It released on white vinyl with a reproduction of the original artwork as part of the Optic Sevens reissue series. It features (The Moment Before) Everything’s Spoiled Again on the B-side. 7” on Optic Nerve includes poster and postcard.

The Wedding Present
The Complete Ukrainian John Peel Sessions

The excellent Hatch Records (Nine Black Alps, Napoleon IIIrd) are the ones behind this Wedding Present reissue. They’ve tacked all kinds of bonus goodies onto this new edition of the band’s famous Ukrainian-language John Peel outings. Not only are all three of the live sessions included here, but there is also an informative booklet and a DVD featuring interviews, concert videos and footage from a rare BBC2 show on The Wedding Present. New artwork, too - they weren’t lying when they put Complete in the title of The Complete Ukrainian John Peel Sessions.

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.

Cinerama
Marc Riley Session

Following on from the vinyl issues of all of the Wedding Present Mark Riley sessions, Dave Gedge's 'other' band get their Riley session re-issued too. They only did one so it's on a 10" this time.  Expect more laid back sounds than the Weddo's bark and strum. Features the 'classic' 'Cat Girl Tights' (ahem) 

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
Marc Riley Sessions Volume 1

It's been quite the year for Wedding Present fans. First up a surprise new album which seemed to garner pretty decent reviews and now the icing on the cake - a collection of all the sessions they did on the Marc Riley show between 2008 and...um...now. It features songs from throughout their lengthy career including a version of the Cheers Theme Tune (an old sitcom to anyone under 30).  

Cinerama / Harkin
The Girl From The DDR (Live) / National Anthem Of Nowhere

Two spin-off bands share a split 7” here. Harkin is Sky Larkin’s Katie Harkin performing solo, and she’s decided to cover Apostle Of Hustle’s ‘National Anthem of Nowhere’. On the flip is The Wedding Present moonlighting as Cinerama, but playing a Wedding Present song. Convoluted eh? On Come And Play, with some of the proceeds going to a Leeds disability charity.

Cinerama
Valentina

Cinerama, aka the band of Wedding Present guitarist David Gedge, are here with a somehow familiar new release. That is because Valentina represents Gedge’s fulfilled ambition to completely rework his other band’s said-same album in orchestral, cinematic style, sans indie-rock guitars. LP and CD on Scopitones.

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.

Cinerama
Seven Wonders Of The World

A giant collection (24 tracks on the CD, 18 on the 2LP) of odds and sods from Cinerama, the filmic pop outlet of Leeds legend David "Wedding Present" Gedge, including B-sides, radio sessions, songs in French and German and their take on 'Diamonds Are Forever'. This is in fact their third collection mopping up non-album tracks in a more easily accessible format. Busy lad, that Gedge.
