THE WEDDING PRESENT (UK) play 'The Hit Parade' - NSC Feb 27th

Following their long-awaited maiden visit to Australia in 2012, UK indie legends, The Wedding Present, now return to play two of their much loved classic albums, ‘George Best’, and ‘The Hit Parade’, in full across two nights. Having enjoyed eighteen UK Top 40 singles, The Wedding Present originally formed in 1985 and built a passionate following on the back of their dogged workload, strong DIY ethic and emotionally-charged perfect pop nuggets. Considered pioneers of the ‘C86’ movement, The Wedding Present boldly stood out from the pack with their noisy/jangly fast-paced guitars and earnestly growled vocals. Propelled by lead singer David Gedge’s perpetual broken heart and incisively brazen lyrics, The Wedding Present continue to influence today’s indie rock scene, as can be evinced in the work of British Sea Power and The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, among countless others. Releasing their eighth studio album in 2012, the well-received ‘Valentina’, The Wedding Present are set to return in early 2013 to delight fans with tracks from their classic albums, ‘George Best’ and ‘The Hit Parade’, along with an assortment of other favourites. Watch The Wedding Present’s video for ‘California’ from ‘The Hit Parade’ here. $40+bf
