Hatch Records, in conjunction with BBC Radio 6 Music, have announced the first in a series of Marc Riley radio sessions from The Wedding Present.
Released 2nd December, Marc Riley Sessions Volume 1 consists of three studio sessions from 2007, 2008 and 2010, the last of which features a version of the Cheers theme song.
“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.” – Marc Riley
