Having enjoyed eighteen UK Top 40 singles, (and perennial favourites of esteemed radio DJ John Peel) The Wedding Present originally formed in 1985 and built a passionate following on the back of their dogged workload, strong DiY ethic and emotionally-charged perfect pop nuggets.
Considered pioneers of the "C86" movement, The Wedding Present boldly stood out from the pack with their noisy/jangly fast-paced guitars and earnestly growled vocals. Propelled by lead singer David Gedge's perpetual broken heart and incisively brazen lyrics, The Wedding Present continue to influence today's indie rock scene, as can be evinced in the work of British Sea Power and The Pains of Being Pure At Heart among countless others.
2012 saw the release of The Wedding Present's eighth studio album, the well-received Valentina, (released on their own Scopitones label and licensed in Australia to Lost And Lonesome), which was followed by an unflinching touring schedule.
Having so enjoyed their recent Australian visit, The Wedding Present are set to return in Feb/March 2013 to delight fans with tracks from their classic albums George Best and The Hit Parade, along with an assortment of other favourites.
