Seamonsters is the third album by The Wedding Present; originally released in 1991.
Recorded in rural Minnesota by the legendary Steve Albini [renowned for his work with Pixies, Nirvana, P.J.Harvey et al], Seamonsters saw the band break dramatically from their signature sound and craft a series of tangibly intense psychodramas. If David Gedge had previously sung about broken hearts, now his band were making music that sounded like hearts breaking. A pure artistic triumph.
This triple 10 inch vinyl box set contains the original album [remastered] plus the three accompanying ‘3 Songs’, ‘Dalliance’ and ‘Lovenest’ EPs and comes with specially commissioned sleeve notes by Dr Stella Creasy MP.
