Dalliance - The Wedding Present Special

Hamilton indie rock fans 'of a certain age' were thrown into general glee last month when it was announced that iconic Brit indie band The Wedding Present will be touring... AND playing at Hamilton's Nivara Lounge. To celebrate, three local fans - Free FM manager and Retrospect '60s Garage Punk Show host Phil Grey, Hamilton Underground Press head honcho Rob Shirlow and Free FM's Artspace Radio host Ben Manning got together in our studios to discuss the band and their legacy. In DALLIANCE - The Wedding Present Special each host chooses their top three Wedding Present tracks, discuss their influence and side projects including Ukrainian folk music diversions, and in Rob and Ben's cases, the excitement of seeing them at their peak - late 80s Britain. DALLIANCE - The Wedding Present Special airs tonight at 9pm, as part of the Free FM ROCK NIGHT.
