Warm Hands and the Things You Say; You Get Lovelier Every Day – The Wedding Present – Part 2

As promised last week here is Some more Wedding Present. Of the four cds here, “Peel Sessions 1987 – 1990” is one of my favorites as it maintains the frantic feel of most of “George Best”

After 1989’s “Bizarro” and 1991’s Steve Albini produced “Seamonsters” the group seems to lose that frantic feeling in their music.

In 1992 they released a new single on the first Monday of the month and subsequently released the collected singles as “Hit Parade 1” (1992) and “Hit Parade 2” in 1993. The three other cds in this post reflect that poppier feel, one that really finds full expression in David Gedge’s group Cinerama… but let’s not get ahead of ourselves here, we’ll save that for another time.
