And when a band is proud enough of an album to play it in its entirety, especially if they made it more than two decades ago " you know it's a show not to be missed. That's how we knew a performance by British indie heroes The Wedding Present at the Annandale Hotel was going to be one of the highlights of the year" gig calendar so far, but somehow they still managed to surpass our expectations. If you can measure the quality of a band by its longevity, then the Weddoes are the cream of the indie noise-rock crop. But we prefer to believe that they have retained popularity because nobody seems to be able to turn gritty tales of love, lust and failed relationships into guitar-driven, volatile melodies quite like David Gedge can.
