`All bands make records differently.'
So says David Gedge in his introduction to this book. Well this is how The Wedding Present do it.
A behind-the-scenes account of the making of Valentina, their eighth studio album, complete with rare photographs and a track-by-track commentary from each member of the band.
This book also unlocks lots of additional digital content including the Valentina album, extra tracks and a 30-minute documentary.
`The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the Rock 'n' Roll Era. You may dispute this, but I'm right and you're wrong!' JOHN PEEL
`Hats off and marks for effort too for David Gedge, who after all this time has managed to make his troupe sound relevant again.' THE QUIETUS
`Valentina plays like a catch-up with an old mate, full of extensive details and drowning sorrows.' INCENDIARY MAGAZINE
`With `Valentina' the Wedding Present have gone back to doing what they do the best. Everything has come together perfectly - the line up, the studio, the mixing and the songs - and the end result is one of the best albums from them in many years.' GUITAR CAFE
