Bill Cummings and Jim Auton were honoured to be joined by David Gedge to talk about the Wedding Present’s 24 Songs series that saw the legendary indie band release two new tracks a month as double A sided 7″s throughout 2022. Gedge has re-curated full-length versions of all twenty-four tracks for a new compilation album with five bonus tracks one featuring The Wedding Present’s first guitarist, Peter Solowka.
24 Songs was a doff of the cap to The Wedding Present’s ‘Hit Parade’ project of 30 years previous. When they became only the second-ever artist to achieve twelve Official UK Top 40 hits in a calendar year – at the time something that only Elvis had achieved!
David talks about his festival At the edge of the Sea, the 24 series, his songwriting, The Wedding Present’s classic albums George Best and Seamonsters, his other band Cinerama and much more.
