The Wedding Present

The Wedding Present

Perennially popular archetypal 80s indie stalwarts fronted by David Gedge head out on their Hit Parade tour.

The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the Rock 'n' Roll Era. You may dispute this, but I'm right and you're wrong! - John Peel

The Wedding Present was born in Leeds, in the UK, in 1985 with the release of the debut single GO OUT AND GET EM' BOY! and the band's first album, GEORGE BEST, followed a couple of years later. With the early releases on their own label, the band acquired a reputation for bittersweet, breathtakingly honest love songs immersed in whirlwind guitars, so it was quite extraordinary that they decided to explore traditional Eastern European folk music for their major label debut on RCA Records in 1989 with UKRAINSKI VISTUPI V JOHNA PEELA. However, this was soon to be followed by the more traditionally incendiary BIZARRO, which featured their first hit single KENNEDY.

DOORS 8PM 16+ SHOW £16 ADV

Going, Going will be the title of the ninth Wedding Present studio album but it's not be merely an album rather a collection of twenty 'linked' tracks, each with a beautiful accompanying film. Given the nature of this unique project, Going, Going will come in a variety of audio-visual formats.
