The Wedding Present
December 7 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the release of George Best, The Wedding Present’s classic debut album. To celebrate this, the band will be playing the album as part of an 85 minute set at the John Peel Centre in December.
With its bittersweet, breathtakingly honest love songs immersed in whirlwind guitars, George Best struck a chord with outsiders across the indie universe. Suddenly here was David Gedge; a geeky pied piper for our youthful missteps. 30 years on… we have laughed, loved and lived along with The Wedding Present but are we any different to the way we were during those first meanderings into love? No, Gedge’s words are still golden… and we will always remember our favourite dress.
The NME described George Best as ‘an unmitigated delight’” upon its release and included it in its 2014 list of ‘The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.’ Allmusic says ‘It would be nearly impossible to name the standout tracks, since… every tune is so solid.’
This is the last time the album will be performed by The Wedding Present.
