The Wedding Present – You Jane

Ever since I spied the cassette artwork for ‘George Best’ in the hands of a cool girl in the early nineties it was true love. Not for the girl mind, more for a band who have for 4 decades now epitomised everything about the indie genre that I love. Of course the Wedding Present only have one constant and that 50-something should really have found someone to share his life with at this stage. But then, would we have gotten half of the gilded lovelorn greats if David Gedge had been happily married with a load of kids? Enough of the context because the Wedding Present have a newbie out, ‘Valentino’, and the first taster called (typically) ‘You Jane’ is a gem, a proper bouncy anthem. Gedge is still at the top of his game and oddly he almost seems to have cheered up (but maybe that’s what happens when you follow us on twitter). On the live front it seems ‘Seamonsters’ is being played in full technicolour. It just gets better and better. KD
