Lost Your Love Of Life?




My 3 year old has been running about the house for weeks singing this or in the car asking "play too much apple pie, daddy". But he is never sure whether Tommy is running away with Harry's wife, or Harry's walked away with Johnie's wife.

Have to admit that it is one of my favourite songs as well.

I have never really bothered with the Wedding Present, although I've liked a few things here and there. Where's best place to start?

i would start with Take Fountain from 2005, my personal favourite, then Bizarro and then you will be hooked. I think that you will really enjoy T F Si.

I'll have a look at that. I actually liked the Albini stuff, and the monthly singles, but never really looked into them further. The after effects of C86, which was never really my favourite musical time. I always associate them with that.

Take Fountain is great, you're right, it's almost like a different band, you can tell it started in his other band. The vocals especially are really good, completely different sound to how he used to be. Very impressed. I also dug out the Hitwave things which I hadn't listened to for a while. Always liked those, I love the idea of recording songs and putting them out quickly, always have.
