Mini is a mini-album by The Wedding Present; originally released in 1996.
Loosely built around a concept of those perennial rock ‘n’ roll archetypes… cars and girls, Mini saw David Gedge’s songwriting hit new peaks of wit and invention – anomalous qualities amid the Britpop era’s bellicose gestures. A triumph of vintage quality over contemporary flash.
This 3CD + DVD Expanded Edition includes the original mini-album [remastered], non-album single tracks, recordings for the BBC’s John Peel and Sound City and concert recordings plus a newly filmed acoustic song and interview with David Gedge discussing the album.
All the content is housed in a hardback book which includes lyrics, photos, memorabilia and extended notes.
