THE WEDDING PRESENT: LIVE IN BANGKOK
The Wedding Present was born in Leeds, in the UK, in 1985 with the release of the debut single Go Out and Get ‘em Boy! and the band’s first album, George Best, followed a couple of years later. With the early releases on their own label, the band acquired a reputation for bittersweet, breathtakingly honest love songs immersed in whirlwind guitars.
In 1992, The Wedding Present released twelve 7” singles, one per month, and equalled Elvis Presley’s 35-year- old record for “most hits in one year”. A gang of impressive names, including Ian Broudie [The Lightning Seeds] and legendary Rolling Stones producer Jimmy Miller collaborated on the industry-challenging project, ultimately to be compiled on the two HIT PARADE LPs.
In a career now entering its 33rd year, the band has released over 30 lps, 40 singles and toured extensively all over the world. This will be their first ever appearance in Thailand.
A 4 piece noise rock band from Bangkok, inspired by Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, My Bloody Valentine and New York’s No Wave Scene. They have released 2 LPs; Thick Mink (2014) and Kart (2017), on legendary Bangkok independent label, Panda Records. They are one of the loudest and noisiest band in Bangkok and are currently recording their third studio album.
