The Wedding Present at Princess Pavilion

9 July 2013

The Wedding Present at Princess Pavilion. Advance tickets £16.50. Doors 7.30pm.

The Wedding Present are a British indie rock group based in Leeds, formed in 1985 from the ashes of the Lost Pandas.

The band's music has evolved from fast-paced indie rock in the vein of their most obvious influences; The Fall, Buzzcocks and Gang of Four, to more varied forms. Throughout their career, they have been led by vocalist and guitarist David Gedge, the band's only constant member.

The Wedding Present have had 18 UK Top 40 hit singles… not bad for a band that has, from its inception, stubbornly refused to play the record industry's game. That was back in 1985 when Gedge boarded a National Express coach in London with 500 records packed into a pair of his mother's suitcases. In this fashion, the single Go Out And Get 'Em Boy! was collected from the pressing plant, delivered to the distribution company, and The Wedding Present was born.
