The Wedding Present: Mini (Cooking Vinyl/LP/CD)
Stephen Dalton, New Musical Express, 20 January 1996
ON RADIO recently, David Gedge claimed that the most hurtful press comment he'd ever read about himself was that he had hairy ears. Well, Dave's clearly not much of a reading man, because The Wedding Present have been all-purpose indie punchbags for many years now. Dismissed as C86 throwbacks at the height of baggy, mocked for being grunge before their time, scorned for still being grunge after everyone else, dropped by RCA for having too many hit singles — the Weddoes haven't had a lucky decade so far.
