The Wedding Present: In Studio

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

In 1985, songwriter David Gedge founded The Wedding Present in Leeds, England. Since then, the pop group has scored Top 40 hits in the UK and established a place in the American indie-rock canon. The band is touring the US with a new record, “Valentina,” while also revisiting the 1991 record “Seamonsters” in its entirety. We’ll hear about both when they join us in studio.

I think I'd rather have (another) chip 'n' dip dish.

Would they like to play the new album Valentina all in one go?

This gets asked of every musician that's shown some longevity, but I'd be curious to hear how Mr. Gedge looks back on the last 25 years of his music, in general. What's it like to still be playing those songs, let alone playing entire albums' worth of material in one show?
