The Wedding Present Are Bizarro Brilliant!

David Gedge is Bizarro Brilliant!
 On Thursday night The Wedding Present played at Norwich Waterfront to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the release of their Bizarro album.

The Jet Age from Washington DC were the support band who brought their Husker Du influenced sound complete with fuzzy guitars, pounding bass and some top class drumming. They are a excellent power trio who kept the crowd entertained before the main event of the evening.

The Wedding Present frontman David Gedge seemed to be really enjoying himself taking us back to the late Eighties and early Nineties on a rollercoaster of a nostalgia trip. Brassneck, Brassneck I just decided I don't trust you anymore reverberated around the venue and we all felt twenty years younger.

Lost your love of life? Too much apple pie. Oh have you lost your love of life? Too much apple pie. The majestic Kennedy showing us the true brilliance of The Wedding Present at their very best. By the time they were playing Take Me the audience were eating out of David Gedge's hand.

David Gedge said that Gedge is a Norfolk name and that he was now truly at home. When he mentioned Ipswich there was laughter as cries of Scum were heard around the venue. This was a very memorable night at Norwich Waterfront to make you realise the brillance of Indie Music in the late Eighties which has stood the test of time very well. We salute you David Gedge!
