Label : Manifesto

Release Date : 1999

Catalogue Number : MFO 40305


Product Information :


  • American compilation of tracks from The Wedding Present's RCA days
  • CD one features the first five singles the group released after leaving their own label for RCA following the success of 'George Best', plus all 13 of those singles' B-sides
  • CD two compiles non-LP tracks, six in all, plus two previously issued concert tracks and seven live versions
  • The surprising shimmer of 'One Day This Will All Be Yours' contrasts neatly with the sinister smack of 'Fleshworld' and the heavy controlled pounding found in their cover of Pavement's 'Box Elder'.
  • 'Singles 1989-1991' retains the band's adrenaline guitar strumming and harried rhythm section, while spotlighting the more developed melodies. It also boasts eight pre-'Hit Parade' covers
  • This back-catalog look-see reminds us why Gedge remains so cult-loved for his uncompromising, intense obsessions
