New Wedding Present single is strictly digital

Posted May 8th, 2008 by eric · No Comments

For a band that once released a new 7″ vinyl single every month for an entire year, going completely digital must feel like a shock to the system, but The Wedding Present has succumbed to technology with the release of “The Thing I Like Best About Him Is His Girlfriend”, a true to form single in both its Smiths-ishly wry title and punchy guitar hooks. David Gedge and the latest incarnation of The Wedding Present’s revolving door line-up will release the Steve Albini-produced El Rey on May 20 via Manifesto Records. It’s been an uphill climb for these perennial underdogs, but there’s something buoyant about David Gedge’s pop songs that can’t seem to keep him down for long.
