Further Information


Reflecting on the impact of their debut album frontman David Gedge explains; “George Best will obviously always hold a special place in my heart because it’s the first album I recorded. All those years of playing my parents’ LPs and then creating my own record collection - all the time dreaming about being in a band myself - were essentially building to the moment when George Best was released. And, although I think The Wedding Present have made better albums since, there’s no denying that there’s spirit and passion and ambition running through these tracks. It wasn’t particularly planned, but I think the efforts of the four people in the group combined to create a unique and original sound. And it was always going to be a ‘Peel’ album because we were such passionate followers of that programme... even though the ardent Liverpool F.C. supporter could hardly bring himself to announce the title on his show - If you’re going to name your record after old footballers, why not Steve Heighway?” he complained.
