TWP Live 1988 The Wedding Present


...brush me daddy-o
It's what we've all been waiting for.... The Wedding Present Live 1988 on CD (rather than crappy worn out tapes).
Live 1988 will be released on 29 March and will be available at live shows and through independent music sellers:)

LIVE 1988’ collects the third and fourth of The Wedding Present’s infamous ‘live tapes’; cassettes that the band sold at gigs and through their fanzine in the late 80s. The recordings were unavailable anywhere else. Fans eagerly collected them and they became very rare. This is the second in the series of these much-demanded CD and digital releases - ‘Live 1987’ was released in 2007 to critical acclaim. Live 1988 is especially interesting because it includes some early versions of tracks [their first hit ‘Kennedy’, for instance] that went on to appear on their major label debut, Bizarro. For 2010 the band are celebrating the 21st Anniversary of the release of Bizarro by playing the album live. In 1988 The Wedding Present were at a crescendo of speeding guitars and lovelorn lyrics… and it’s all even faster and more frantic live, of course, with the adrenalin of public performance, but somehow it all holds together. Live 1988 documents a moment in British indie pop history when they led a very large and lasting pack of emerging exciting bands. The CD release includes an eight-page booklet featuring the original cassette artwork, photos and a list of concerts the band played in 1988.
