Take Fountain
2XLP $27.85

08/19/2016  

HHBTM 176 


***In 2005 Take Fountain was the first WEDDING PRESENT album in nine years. The one before, Saturnalia, released in 1996, went Top Forty. Now in 2016 HHBTM Records releases the album for the first time on vinyl in the United States. The band's singer and major songwriter, DAVID GEDGE, has spent the intervening years releasing CINERAMA albums, culminating in the critically acclaimed Torino CD in 2002. The album was recorded in Seattle with STEVE FISK, who has also produced Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pavement, Low, and The Screaming Trees. In addition, he produced a previous Wedding Present album, Watusi, for Island Records. Fountain, incidentally, is a main East to West avenue in L.A. When an aspiring starlet asked Bette Davis for advice on "the best way to get into Hollywood", Ms Davis replied without hesitation "Take Fountain!" On one of the last Peel Programmes before his death, the late DJ commented on the new songs: "they are as good as anything The Wedding Present have done in the past". Edition of 500 copies. Includes a download.
