Default The Wedding Present



Of all the bands you'll find on the CD86 comp, these guys are probably my favourites. Leeds' finest musical export in my opinion. I've given them a shout or two before on the boards (I actually thought they were Mancs as well - boy is my face red!). They have a sound which sounds a bit like a mix of the Buzzcocks and Joy Division and then sped up a little bit - classic jangly 80s indie then. Any fans of the Smiths should definitely check these guys out.

Can't get enough of their George Best album myself. Here's a nice video with three of its highlights - Getting Nowhere Fast, My Favourite Dress and Shatner;



Anyone else into these guys at all?

Oh, and PMs available on request as always

I'm long overdue an album by them, i've heard plenty of singular songs but like Echo and the Bunnymen they've never really caught me which is bizarre looking at my music taste. I'll give George Best a go.

Good man

As for me I'm gonna look for one or two more of their albums now. I'll post back with some opinions I guess.

I've definitely heard of them before, but I have yet to actually hear them. I'd be willing to give it a shot, as I like the Buzz****s and Joy Division and from your description they sound pretty cool. Any suggestions as for where to start? And any way I could get a pm?

Love this band. George Best is a fantastic album and definitely my favorite by them but Seamonsters and Bizarro are fairly good albums themselves.

Haven't listened to Seamonsters yet, but I've given Bizarro a few tries and it does sound really good. It doesn't quite have the absolute killer songs like on George Best, but I'll probably pick some out with a few more listens.
