The Wedding Present – Two Bridges
Peel once credited 'the boy Gedge' with shaping his musical direction, high praise indeed from a man who perhaps shaped more musical directions than anyone in history. He also credited David Gedge with writing some of the best love songs in modern music. The Wedding Present appeared in session nine times for John Peel between 1986 and 1992 and, following a hiatus while Gedge concentrated on the Cinerama project, returned with the Take Fountain album in 2005. 'Two Bridges' saw them achieve their 51st appearance in the festive fifty and their first number one when it was voted as the best release of 2013 by Dandelion Radio listeners.
