t h e   w e d d i n g   p r e s e n t   ( 1 9 8 7   -   1 9 9 9 )

Of all the great song-writers emerging from the independent music scene of the late nineteen eighties, Dave Gedge was the unrivalled master at observing human relationships in the simple parlance of the working classes but with the touch and artistry of a poet.

The Wedding Present, with the boy Gedge on vocals and fearsome guitar, recorded and toured for twelve years from 1985 to 1997. Details of albums and lyrics are below.
