Just put out their L.A. album "El Rey", kind of blah but they're still fantastic live.

4600 posts on a Coachella board and you don't know who the Wedding Present are?

Been around since mid 80's. They were on the famed C86 tape put out by NME and have put out many revered songs and albums.

Main guy David Gedge was even based in Seattle, your home town, for awhile and put out several songs that referenced Seattle on Take Fountain.

Pitchfork has one of their songs 'My Favourite Dress' on their top 500 songs of all time.

I've seen them three times plus Gedge's other band Cinerama once and I've never left disappointed.
