Marking the 30th Anniversary of their classic debut album The Wedding Present have done something special and re-recorded then entire record with Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Pixies, The Cribs) back in 2008 but are now releasing it. 

One could almost imagine that this is the version of George Best that David would have liked to have recorded back in 1987. It is just so well done... as you’d expect, of course, with Albini at the controls. But you can also feel David’s 20 years older self guiding the new recording with experience and confidence. Everything is bigger… the drums on the original recording were played live, but were done on a ‘Simmons’ electronic drum kit. The combination of Albini’s recording and the ultra-talented Graeme Ramsay on ‘real’ drums brings these frantic songs to life. However, the real difference comes out in the way those super-fast, ever-jangly guitars sound… they’re warmer, they’re rockier, they’re more modern. More… Albini! - Scopitines
