The Wedding Present have acquired a reputation for bittersweet, breathtakingly honest love songs immersed in whirlwind guitars. They have had 18 UK Top 40 singles...not bad for a band that has, from its inception, stubbornly refused to play the record industry's game. It all started in 1985 when David Lewis Gedge boarded a Nation Express coach in London with 500 records packed into a pair of his Mother's suitcases and, in this fashion, delivered the bands debut single 'GO OUT AND GET'EM BOY!' to a distribution company in Yorkshire. That pioneering spirit has been at the core of the band's philosphy ever since. From 'GEORGE BEST', the first full length release on their own Reception Records onwards, the band has charted an appealing, if often eccentric, course of its very own.
