The Hits Parade Tour: The Wedding Present + Taffy + The Nightingales
The Wedding Present head out on the road again this Autumn, performing the A-sides of the twelve singles that formed their record-breaking Hit Parade series of 1992.
In the late 1980s The Wedding Present were one of the most famous British indie bands. Their career path often involved unusual decisions, such as recording a set of Ukranian folk songs for their first major-label offering and releasing a single on the first Monday of every month for a year. Band members came and went, but the idea of The Wedding Present as a group has remained. Nowadays fans of 'the Weddoes' can still hear their favourite songs (as well as new material) being played live by original songwriter David Gedge and his band.
The Wedding Present tour dates
Tokyo girl-fronted four-piece. Taffy deliver an intoxicating blend of well-crafted bubblegum pop, shoegaze and psych with catchy indie songs akin to Shonen Knife, The Apples In Stereo and Kenickie. Their heavy guitar riffs and playful vocals are shot through with noise and punk riffs that seduce and capture the spirit of 90's Britpop.
Taffy tour dates
The Nightingales was formed by former members of Birmingham's original punk group The Prefects. With an ever fluctuating lineup, based around lyricist / singer Robert Lloyd, the band recorded a bunch of singles, three albums and many radio sessions for John Peel before it stopped working in the late 80s.
The current line up features Lloyd, original Prefects guitarist Alan Apperley, Andreas Schmid from Faust on bass and ex Violet Violet drummer Fliss Kitson.
