Indie heroes The Wedding Present to play George Best album in full at Princess Pavilion, Falmouth

SEMINAL 80s indie heroes The Wedding Present will be performing George Best in full at Princess Pavilion, Falmouth, on Tuesday July 9.
The Wedding Present have had 18 UK Top 40 hit singles…not bad for a band that has, from its inception, stubbornly refused to play the record industry's game.
That was back in 1985 when Gedge boarded a National Express coach in London with 500 records packed into a pair of his mother's suitcases. In this fashion, the single Go Out And Get 'Em Boy! was collected from the pressing plant, delivered to the distribution company, and The Wedding Present was born.
That pioneering spirit has been at the core of the bands philosophy ever since. From George Best, "an unmitigated delight" (NME), the first full-length release on their own Reception Records onwards, the band has charted an appealing, if often eccentric, course of its very own.
They may have released better albums (Bizarro, Seamonsters) but George Best was where the Wedding Present sound was distilled – a gig not to be missed.
