Cinerama (>The Wedding Present): il nuovo album

630

Da oltre 15 anni l’altra band di David Gedge (The Wedding Present). Inizialmente condivisa con Sally Murrell (che diventerà la sua metà anche nella vita) e Simon Cleave, poi diventata di fatto una costola della formazione madre dopo tre rivalutabilissimi album. Ora il nome Cinerama ritorna il 18 maggio con ‘Valentina’ (via Scopitones)… un disco però molto molto particolare. “In 2012, The Wedding Present released their eighth studio album Valentina. But the critical acclaim that followed wasn’t quite enough for Mr Gedge. He had long been harbouring a dream. And this was to record one version of an album as The Wedding Present and another [with reworked songs] as Cinerama. Valentina was chosen for this. The initial plan was release them simultaneously but it was soon to be realised that this was a project that would take years to accomplish. So the releases have been staggered to allow time to complete the complex Cinerama arrangements”. Con Gedge collaborano gli asturiani Pedro Vigil e Paco Loco. A settembre era invece uscita la raccolta ‘Seven Wonders Of The World’ in parte registrata da Steve Albini.
