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 1994, ‘Watusi’ is the fourth LP by The Wedding Present and represented a shift into a more 60s influenced pop sound. Though ultimately often forgotten, its timeless aesthetic makes it often regarded as a lost classic. This remastered and expanded edition also includes bonus material featuring live versions and sessions alongside a DVD of classic TV appearances and an interview with David Gedge about 'Watusi' in 2014.
