Flashback Friday - The Wedding Present

I kind of lost track of The Wedding Present after their first couple albums which were so brilliant came out in the late 1980's, although we did see them at Slim's in San Francisco in, oh it must have been about '93 or '94. Hell of a show!

Anyway, please enjoy these selections from the albums Bizarro and George Best

And I have no idea how I originally heard about the "Ukranian Peel Sessions," But I somehow ended up with a 10" vinyl pressing of this album, in which the Wedding Present performs a selection of Ukranian folk songs in Ukranian.

Now that brings back memories!

I must confess my musical ignorance by saying I've never heard of The Wedding Present before. But I love those Ukrainian recordings! Too bad the album is so impossible to find. Thanks for posting these!

Eastern European melodies must have been a thing at the time, I remember some Dead Milkmen songs along those lines.
