The Wedding Present’s 20-track new album Going, Going. commences as a sombre and experimental affair, instrumental but for some chanted wordless melodies. It would certainly be a radical departure were David Gedge’s dulcet Yorkshire tones and whip-smart kitchen sink dramas set to music not to play a part on this, their ninth studio album. The Wedding Present are an arty bunch, sure, but they’re also a record-breaking singles band, having had as many top 40 hits in one year as The King himself (yes, I do mean Elvis). Where Morrissey becomes more and more a self parody, his teenage angst unbecoming for a man who’s seen the best side of 50, Gedge’s frailties and foibles are all too human. This emotional ping pong we call living doesn’t get any easier with all that extra experience. Try not to get depressed about it now.
