‘Something And Nothing’ is the second volume in the autobiography from David Gedge of Wedding Present fame. The release in November 2022 will be accompanied by a live ‘Tales From The Wedding Present’ tour of seated venues in the UK which will feature Terry interviewing David, an audience Q&A, and a 45 minute semi-acoustic set.

Presented in chronological order; the memoir takes up where Volume One left off – just after the release of The Wedding Present’s first single ‘Go Out And Get ’Em, Boy!’ in 1985 – and takes us through the next three years of the band’s existence. David writes intimately about all of the events leading up to the writing, recording and release of the band’s classic debut album, George Best.

David Lewis Gedge is an English musician, best known for his work in the influential indie rock group The Wedding Present, of which he is the singer, guitarist, principal songwriter and only ever-present member.

In the UK, The Wedding Present have had eighteen Top 40 singles and seven Top 40 albums – a remarkable achievement for a band that has, from its inception, refused to play the record industry’s game.

He is known and respected as a champion of the DIY ethic and, over the years, has collaborated with people as diverse as Steve Albini

“The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’ era. You may dispute this, but I’m right and you’re wrong!” – John Peel
