Wedding Present – Drive
In 2005, after an eight year hiatus, David Gedge revived the critically acclaimed band, The Wedding Present, and released a new album, “Take Fountain.” Immediately after releasing this album, the band set out on a 16-month concert tour of Europe and North America. Thirdhand Films documented the North American leg of the tour, traveling alongside the band for eight of their tour dates and capturing the essence and intensity of their live shows. The resulting film incorporates the most comprehensive live footage of the band to date, as well as interviews and candid behind-the-scenes footage.
British indie rock group The Wedding Present formed in Leeds in 1985 from the ashes of the Lost Pandas. The band’s music has evolved from fast-paced indie rock in the vein of their most obvious influences The Fall, Buzzcocks and Gang of Four to more varied forms. Throughout their career, they have been led by vocalist and guitarist David Gedge, the band’s only constant member.
