I was grinning from ear to ear when they played this on Saturday. Of course they played this. My favourite song by The Wedding Present. Had a great time at Great Portland Street gig #C86 . Quick shout out for Des!gn who played The Chesterf!elds wonderfully. Just seemed like The Chesterf!elds with a female singer and some volume. Fab.
If you only had two weeks left to live, would you go out with a bang or a whimper? I saw the Wedding Present quite a few times in the 80s and 90s, from an audience of 40 at Enot's Social Club to 40,000 at Reading Festival. They used to play this as an encore, with an extended outtro that could extend the song by 10 minutes.
When my friend gave me a guitar, this was the only thing I wanted to learn to play.
This will always be My Favourite Dress.
