The Wedding Present: Town And Country Club, London

Jack Barron, New Musical Express, 20 October 1988

DAVID GEDGE, six foot plus of gangly manhood in a vile paisley shirt, steps through the balloon infested stage and grabs the microphone with a velvet fist. "Are you still going to like us when we're on Top Of The Pops?" he asks, vulnerability hidden beneath an iron glove of sarcasm so typical of The Wedding Present. The fastest chattering guitars to still speak sense in the UK rattle out the chords to 'I'm Not Always So Stupid' and we're bouncing out our reply.
