Valentina (LP, Album). Mystery Date' is the kind of track that builds and in doing so you find yourself reaching for the volume control. Valentina' is a welcome return to form for The Wedding Present and enough to put the doubters' (myself included) minds to rest. Key song: Deer Caught in the Headlights. Reply Notify me Helpful.
Album · 2012 · 12 Songs. Founded in Leeds in 1985, The Wedding Present in 2012 still plays with a firm commitment to tough-sounding pop music (with only leader David Gedge standing as an original member). The guitars and drums are pure brawn, while Gedge finds indelible melodies to skirt as he rants like an angry patron at the last bar on Earth.

Seamonsters was a hard slap of an album, indie pop curdled into abrasion and dissonance, with lyrics whose barbed wit seemed like singer/guitarist David Gedge's dam to hold back much more hurtful words. That version of the Wedding Present, though- Gedge, guitarist Peter Solowka, bassist Keith Gregory, and drummer Simon Smith- is a distant memory. Valentina is essentially Gedge and his current sidemen doing a very solid impression of the Wedding Present as they were circa 1990. His lyrics are still focused on infidelity and emotional unfairness, although his characters are a lot more willing to accept culpability than they were back when he was writing songs with titles like "Why Are You Being So Reasonable Now?"
Valentina is the ninth studio album by English rock band The Wedding Present. It was the first album since Saturnalia not to feature Terry de Castro on bass, although she did provide a few backing vocals. The album was produced by Andrew Scheps, who had previously worked with bands including U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Adele. Included in the eleven tracks is the only single to be taken from the album, You Jane, which was released as a single on 30 January 2012. In May 2015 Valentina was re-recorded by David Gedge's other band Cinerama.

6. The Girl from the DDR Lyrics.
2012 release, the eighth studio album from the veteran Alt-Rock band led by David Gedge. Valentina comes four years after 2008's critically acclaimed El Rey. Recorded in the wilds of France, the suburbs of Los Angeles and the lanes of Brighton, it shimmers with near perfection.
The Wedding Present, who formed in Leeds, England, in 1985, is one of British alternative rock’s longest-running bands. They’re also among its most consistently high-quality. Singer/guitarist David Gedge still writes about the intricacies of romantic love with great humor, insight, and style, and the band still backs his lovelorn tales with a ferocious but controlled take on super-dynamic pop arrangements. It’s Layton you hear first on the band’s most recent studio album, Valentina, pumping out the powerful floor tom/snare intro to You’re Dead. Beyond being a vote of confidence in Layton, it’s a neat clue to the drummer’s approach on the rest of the album-like Gedge’s lyrics, the part isn’t self-consciously clever, but it’s not quite standard fare either.
