PCL presents The Wedding Present at the Tunnels

The Wedding Present have had eighteen UK Top 40 hit 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 National Express coach in London with 500 records packed into a pair of his mother’s suitcases and, in this fashion, delivered the band’s 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 philosophy ever since. From George Best, “an unmitigated delight” (NME), 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.
