the wedding present

Always draws a fond glow when it comes into earshot, here’s the Weddoes session version of ‘everyone thinks he looks daft’ recorded for Marc Riley on his 6music show way back in 2007, no doubt tying in and festooned with celebratory bunting given it was the 20th anniversary of the release of the bands debuting full length ‘George Best’ – in fact the band have just leaked dates for next year to coincide with the albums 30th anniversary. This version comes pulled from an imminent ‘Marc Riley sessions – part 1’ collection that gathers together cuts new and old, even forgotten all recut and updated anew taking in 3 appearances made by the band in 2007, 2008 and 2010 with ‘everyone thinks he looks daft’ very much adored in their trademark acutely angular jangle of the day primed over which sits Gedge’s often blistered and bruised poetic songcraft on the cruelty and emotional pain of relationship fallouts.
