Description

LIMITED VINYL EDITION. Released on 10inch vinyl across 3 discs and featuring brand new heavyweight sleeve and inner bag art, packaged in a 10inch box. Incudes the bonus tracks from its accompanying Ep's 'Dallience' and '3 Songs EP' and 'Lovenest'. Remastered, as was Bizarro, under the watchful eye of David Gedge. Seamonsters is the third studio album by English indie band The Wed-ding Present. It was recorded in ten days in 1991 by American producer Steve Albini at Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. Albini had previously recorded two EPs with the group, "Brassneck" and "3 Songs" and, like those records, "Seamonsters" has a rougher, harsher overall sound than the group's earlier two albums. In deliberate contrast to the full sentences featured on previous record-ings - something for which the group had often been parodied within the music press - all of the songs on Seamonsters have one-word titles. The album enjoyed a strongly positive critical reception. Hailed as a classic at the time, it had stood up to many imitators and is one of the bands most lauded pieces of work. Massive guitars and feedback galore, David Gedge still writes about love, lust and love lost, but the lyrics are accompanied by a wall of sound, intimate and overpowering. Guitarist Peter Solowka was sacked between the recording and release of the album, replaced by Paul Dorrington. Throughout 2012 The Wedding Present will be playing their third studio album, 'Seamonsters' live, in its entirety. The USA leg of the tour starts in late March and the UK & European dates start in September and continue to the end of the year.
