Biography

The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Era. You may dispute this, but I’m right and you’re wrong!‘ John Peel.

The Wedding Present have had eighteen UK Top 40 hit singles… not bad for a band that has, from its inception, stubbornly refused to play the record industry’s game. In 1985 David Lewis Gedge boarded a ... Read more in Amazon's The Wedding Present Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Gedge's All Time Classic! 23 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
A masterpiece! To me, not only is Saturnalia David Gedge's finest hour but probably the greatest album of all time! For die hard Weddoes fans like myself Saturnalia runs like a greatest hits album, combining all aspects of the preceding four albums 'proper'. From the opening 'ping' of track one 'Venus' thru to the dying embers of the closing track '50's' fading into nothingness(without a doubt the finest fade-out in recording history) it oozes quality with ten other 'jems' inbetween. More highlights include: the dreamy guitar of 'Dreamworld' DLG's vocal on 'Snake Eyes' and 'Hula Doll'/'Big Boots' are just brilliant! Its fitting that this should be the final TWP album before the birth of Cinerama. So the boy Gedge certainly knows how to go out in style after an amazing twelve years or so...and on to the next best project...well you'll just have to go out and get em' boy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why is "Watusi" unavailable??" 13 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
Good question, as "Watusi" is a fantastic Weddoes album. But then so "Saturnalia". Perhaps not as immediate as their earlier stuff, this finds Gedge in typical broken hearted form. The lyrics are perhaps more adult - "I like watching you when you come" - but the songs are trademark WP. From the jangly pop of "Montreal" to the grunge fuzz guitar squall of "Skin Diving" this is a must have. Stick with it, give it a few goes, and it will reveal its treasures. Fantastic!!!!

Format:Audio CD
After a string of great albums (particularly 'Seamonsters'), The Wedding Present leave us with their poppiest effort. Maybe the impending split had released some tension but this album shows the band in lighthearted mood. Short, punchy songs coupled with Gedge's trademark choppy guitar technique make for a great listen. And it's not too long - the downfall of many an album these days. If you like the Wedding Present but lost interest after 'Seamonsters' then get this - it will restore your faith. If you don't like the Wedding Present but like great guitar music, order this and 'Seamonsters' and you will not regret it.

3.0 out of 5 stars You just can't go on pretending 11 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm afraid I'm not as enthused by the previous reviewers of this, The Wedding Presents last album.
Whilst this album is in no way money wasted, I think we're all in a dream world if this is considered TWP's finest hour, to me it's not close to any of the big 3, George Best, Bizarro and Seamonsters.
In parts the ablum sounds like 90's indie popsters Lush, the jangly guitars that are all over the album aren't the sound I like and the soft Gedge voice in 2,3,Go I find upsetting.
The highlights of the album; although still with female backing vocals, that give the tracks a "Primitives" feel are Montreal and Kansas and that I've no idea what Gedge is on about is still fun. Snake eyes takes us back to TWP of old, but only briefly.
I've recently compiled a best of TWP, I'm sad to say that none of the songs on this album have made the 11 I chose.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the WP's best 8 Feb 2007
By Mike C - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a huge WP fan and currently this is my favorite WP album. It is half way between the gritty punk of WP and the lovestruck pop of Cinerama. The only other album that comes close is the Live in Belfast album, but, I still prefer Saturnalia.

If you like WP, this will likely be your faovrite WP album of all time, I know it is mine. Gedge really outdid himself on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Returning to their roots, it's loud!! 29 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have to say is this album is a fine return to the essential Wedding Present. It's loud, beautiful guitar rock. The lyrics reflect Gedge's angry, bitter view on love and sex. Great stuff here, just buy it and play it loud!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mid 90's indie rock 4 Mar 2002
By Upsaka Jc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'd recomend this CD to any fans of bands like pavement though i think the Weddoes are a better over all band. Jet Girl and Kansas
have great boy/girl vocals and Big Boots has that slow pavementy sound. This is a great CD from one of the Best bands in this genre.
