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

Product Description

Tommy is a compilation album by The Wedding Present, originally released in 1988, collecting songs from the band’s first four singles, plus four tracks recorded for BBC Radio sessions. Bringing together material written in the band’s first two years of existence, Tommy proved that The Wedding Present’s essence was in place from the start. These kinetic blasts of homespun high-velocity bedsit drama presaged the more finessed George Best, but represented the band’s definitive portrayal. The 3CD + DVD Expanded Edition includes the original album, bonus tracks, BBC sessions and live material plus promo and live videos, TV appearances & a new acoustic performance of ‘My Favourite Dress’ plus an interview with David Gedge discussing the collection. All the content is housed in a hardback book which includes lyrics, imagery and memorabilia scans and extended notes.

I bought this album when it came out and am still listening to it now. It shows the band in familiar jangly guitar mode but the production is nice and raw, and it also highlights that the Weddoes could come up with some excellent tunes and lyrics. For me this album and "George Best" are both great examples of late 80's indie.The intro to "Living and Learning" still puts a shiver down my spine now whenever I hear it.

I'm a big Wedding Present fan, so I was always going to like this almost comprehensive package, with lyrics, pictures, narrative, live versions, DVD versions and interviews as well as the original Tommy. I love it.

I remember well when I first bought this album...the distinctive sound of the Wedding Present! Dave Gedge, the singer, always used to joke that they were the Smiths fans second favourite band. This is an understandable sentiment and Gedge always manages to express relationships and situations in a heartfelt and honest way. Alongside this the band have a distinctive sound. Yes there are the jangly guitars but these songs are often muscular too - just don't go expecting twee indie music here - you won't get it. Go Out and Get Em Boy veers from arpeggio opening to chiming chords to a rather optimistic sounding verse..and this is just the start. I think one of the strengths of the Wedding Present is their absolute lack of pretension and their reflection on everyday life - often injected with wry humour. Yes the band grow ever tighter with each record they released but the tunes here still stand on their own merits. Personal favourite is Never Said declaring, "I walked behind you for more than an hour, I don't even think that I know this part of town....." - in the context of the song this is a sweet lovelorn sentiment set to a fast paced guitar workout. I don't listen to Tommy that much now - Bizarro probably is my favourite Wedding Present album but Tommy is worth checking out. It has some gems on it. Its unpolished and perhaps all the better for that.....

These releases have been recked by the dreadful sleeve packaging. Designed by half witted Monkeys in plush London studios better suited to deliver road sweeping. Each sleeve is carefully designed to scratch the surface of the CD rendering it useless In around six months flat. I am so frustrated at the continued design issues of these type of release programmes. Edsel should wake up. I have ordered all of the Wedding Present releases and will be sending them all promptly back. I cannot be bothered to keep sending them back until I can find a set not ruined by the idiot packaging Edsel passed to house all of the sets. It was the same with Aztec Camera and EBTG. What the hell are they playing at. Not one disc of my set is not trashed by the abrasive action of the book like design. I respectfully request that anybody who buys the set to also check their discs. Yes they will be ruined as well. You might like to pay £12.00 for discs that resemble at least ten years of heavy duty wear on a factory floor. I myself like to look after my collection so I can at least be playing the disc with no errors next year. Go on send them back. Edsel and their like will not learn the lesson of good practical sleeve design until you do. They rely on our hard earned money to make a living and lovers of music deserve better for their money. What is the point of still purchasing music on CD if this kind of useless rubbish is what you get. I will stick to my old vinyl copies for now. Thanks Edsel.

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH 4 Mar 2002
By Upsaka Jc - Published on Amazon.com
This CD really shows off the Best of 1980's era Weddoes work. I can listen to this Cd over and over esp. songs like this boy can wait. Its catchy Jingle Janglely cat scratchy music and I'm sure any indie rock fan would love this.

To understand the essence that is the Wedding Present, you must understand their roots. That is what 'Tommy' is all about. With each song you can hear the band get tighter and the song writing maturing. Great stuff for any lover of British guitar pop.
The Wedding Present deserves better. 16 Nov 2014

The 2014 deluxe versions of all the Wedding Present albums are a quality control disaster with the discs marred by splotches of glue and deep scratches. Edsel Records should be ashamed of themselves, the Wedding Present deserves better.
