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

From Dalliance to Octupussy not one bad track on the album, in fact there are too many stand out tracks to justify a rational review. Recently I met up with a couple of friends & we did our top ten tracks of all time - it was a toss up between Cordurouy, Dalliance, Heather & Rotterdam. But along with the Pixies Doolittle this is a complete album, songs do not stand out, they are an integral part of a time & an atmosphere. Whereas Bizarro was a collection of post punk angst ridden love songs, Seamonsters is far more positive & Steve Albini has transformed quirky Englishness into bitter tales of love, gained & lost played at breakneck speed. They would never be this good again (with the sole exception of "Click,click from Watusi) I saw them twice in 1992 & they remain the best band I ever saw live. If you like the Smiths get George Best, which has humour wedded(no pun intended) with distinctive guitar. But if you want to hear out & out rock - tales of love, lost, never attained, or spurned buy this album. Dave Gedge is still recording fantastic material with Cinerama but Seamonsters is a must have, an album far heavier than Nevermind, knocks spot of Nevermind, & uses more feedback than even Hendrix.

The reissue of 'Seamonsters' is extremely welcome, as my tape is just about worn out...So, here we are- that brilliant ten track album, complete with the b-sides of the 'Dalliance', 'Lovenest' & the '3 Songs' e.p. of 1990...For anyone that appreciates Steve Albini's 'production' (recorded by...)- here is one of his best jobs. As good as his previous work with Pixies, Jesus Lizard & Breeders; up there with his own Rapeman/Shellac records...The Weddoes had taken their jingly-jangly blend of C-86, The Smiths etc. to their limit on the brilliant 'Bizarro'. The guitar destruction of 'Take Me' is evidence of this; they also seemed to have tired of the pop-side of songs like 'Nobody's Twisting your arm' & 'My favourite Dress'...You have to move on, or you will stagnate (as the Weddoes would find out after 'THe Hit Parade')...The indicators of the shift the Weddoes would make are shown on the 'Brassneck'& '3 Songs' e.p.'s. These were their first work with Steve Albini and the harsh guitar-work sounded at odds with lazy baggie mish like 'I'm Free' or 'Groovy Train' (the current re-cycled vomit)...This has more in common with the noises of MBV's 'Glider' or 'Bleach' by Nirvana (another harsh guitar record, with hooks & emotions beneath)...'Dalliance' is the opener (and one of the singles of the decade!)which starts & builds to a guitar-mass closer to Sonic Youth or the dub-guitar hell of XTC's 'Travels in Nihilon' or 'No Language in our Lungs'. By the time the final wave of guitars come in, you are blown away; this is the best loud music! (Oh, and the songs another one of those Gedge heartbreakers!)...The record just flows- oh, here is another classic ('Suck') & another ('Dare'). This is Indie music, with balls!...Read more ›

I love this. I hadn´t listened to it or owned for years and so decided to snap up the re-vamped version. It´s worth every penny.
A few eyebrows were raised when The Wedding Present recorded with Steve Albini but here you can see why it did them a power of good.
Albiní takes the cotton wool off this band, David Gedge´s lyrics have moved on a bit here and are not so simple. This album is more brooding than the earlier Wedding Present efforts
and this is highlighted by the understated yet manacing,"dalliance." I love the power chord in,"blond," and the tinny drumming on,"rotterdam," a typical Albini production tweak. This is a great song, I love the honesty of David Gedge´s strained vocal. "Lovenest," koos along, all the songs feel more inventive musically than the previous Wedding Present stuff. The bursts of guitar noise add a great touch.
This lovely collection of songs hasn´t dated in the slightest and I think you have to give credit to the brilliant production on the album for that.
I also love the bonus tracks. "Make me smile," for example is given a real a real blistering working-over. I also like "Niagara" and "Dan Dare." This is noisy guitar pop at it´s very best.

What can I say about 'Seamonsters'??

This album blew me away on release and still does to this day. 1 of my top 5 albums of all time.

This album came out just as 'Madchester' was on the wain,and shoegaze was de rigour, but David Gedge was always a step ahead, beautifully crafted songs from the heart. Songs about REAL things. The album, that to me, most connects to how it is to be a man and the heartbreak that we cannot express. The condition of being unable to express emotion using language.

It's really what ISNT said in this record that makes this album so powerful and really sets up countless imitators in the 90's. They never did it as well, or as so heartbreakingly as the Weddoes.

This is an essential album. Steve Albini gives, to me, his career defining production moment, something he would never recapture, even 'In Utero' pales. I'm sure Kurt knew this.....

Is there hope? maybe. Maybe not.

Buy. Listen. Then listen again. Feel.

Amazing.
