the wedding present

Out soon, well tomorrow to be precise, the welcomed second volume of a trilogy of releases featuring the extensive session catalogue of recordings made by the Wedding Present for Marc Riley on 6music. This set concentrates itself on celebrate appearances made in 2012, 2013 and 2014 – three sessions all in – 12 tracks in total. These sessions often find Gedge and Co cut loose, smattering the track listings with both current and forgotten nuggets with the occasional unexpected detour for fun rustling through lost b-sides, as is the case of the featured ‘pleasant valley Sundays’. A cover of the Monkees’ gem that first surfaced on the flip of ‘come play with me’ – the 5th single in ‘92’s record breaking 12 charting singles in one year ‘hit parade’ soiree, this version sumptuously cut with a muscularly scuzzed and scuffed lo-fi buzz replete with a killer detuned wiriness, kind of has you wondering that every home deserves at least one Weddoes album. https://soundcloud.com/hatchrecords/pleasant-valley-sunday-marc-riley-session-211013
