The Wedding Present










‘Marc Riley Sessions Volume 1’


Album released 9th December on Hatch Records


The release of The Wedding Present sessions done for our 6 Music programme over the years is something of an honour. In the great tradition of the Peel/Selwood releases on the Strange Fruit label this record proves that even without John the BBC can still be a place where great bands can continue to grow and be creative… amongst friends.”
