Event description

Description

Wow! What a privilege and a treat of a Festival opener - join us for the official launch of the first instalment of DAVID GEDGE's long-awaited memoir:

‘TALES FROM THE WEDDING PRESENT’ VOLUME 1: GO OUT AND GET ’EM, BOY!

Go Out And Get ’Em, Boy! is the first volume in a hugely anticipated new auto-biography from David Gedge of Wedding Present fame.

The stories in this long-awaited graphic novel have previously only been available to readers of the Tales From The Wedding Present comic book series. This collected edition comes with never-before-seen additional tales and an introduction by David Gedge himself.

Publishers have been asking David to write his autobiography for years, and he has always secretly wanted to be the star of his own graphic novel, so this is a timely arrangement!

David writes the Tales From The Wedding Present narrative together with long-time musical associate Terry de Castro, and then the stories are illustrated by virtuoso artist Lee Thacker. The three of them have been working steadily, with editing help from Jessica McMillan, relating the life and adventures of David Lewis Gedge, for almost ten years.

With twenty 20-page comics published to date, Go Out And Get ’Em, Boy! is the first compilation (in chronological order) of the stories. It begins at the very beginning, with David’s childhood in England and South Africa, and leads up to the inception of The Wedding Present.

Go Out And Get ’Em, Boy! will be officially launched at Louder Than Words Festival 2020. Our event - and the subsequent release of David's book - will be accompanied by a live Tales From The Wedding Present tour of seated venues in the UK which will feature Terry interviewing David, an audience Q&A, and a 45 minute semi-acoustic set from David, Terry and Wedding Present bassist Melanie Howard.

For the Louder Than Words Festival event, a discounted Book and Event Combo ticket is available to guarantee your copy of David's book as well as Event Only tickets.

“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
