The Wedding Present: Take Fountain
Buy! - (Manifesto)
After the break-up of his relationship with long-time girlfriend and Cinerama cohort Sally Murrell, David Gedge has revived his old band the Wedding Present, following up the recently released “Interstate 5” single with the first Wedding Present album in over eight years. Gedge himself sounds revived here: While his work with Cinerama was usually top-notch, the sound here is generally darker and laced with the Wedding Present’s buzzing guitars, making an excellent fit for the album’s heart-rending songs detailing the dissolution of a relationship. Written and mostly recorded while Gedge was living in Seattle (and peppered with references to the city), Take Fountain is one of the finest albums of Gedge’s illustrious career. 1/31/2005 - Don Yates
