chickfactor had the pleasure of dining with David Gedge of the fantabulous Wedding Present and his family at the delectable deli Kenny & Zukes in Portland, Oregon, this week. We are more than a little excited about TWP’s spring tour in which they will be performing all of the perfect Steve Albini-produced album Seamonsters for the kids. This album (and this song that I love) takes us way back to 1991 when we were roadtripping it north with Pam and the gang, going to Pier Platters and Maxwell’s and buying lots of records and playing this one over and over. In case you were unaware, we started chickfactor fanzine because of TWP frontman Mr. Gedge! Anyway, according to his Scopitones site, TWP will be Seamonstering in North America and Japan in March and April and playing it in Europe/The UK Sept-Nov. We look forward to attending more than one of these concerts. Also there is a new TWP fan club thingie called Club 8 — details here.
