This year David Gedge finally realised a dream that he's had for about 15 years.

He's been doing The Wedding Present since they released their first single in 1985, of course, but, since the late 1990s, he's also had a side project called Cinerama whose music is less guitar-orientated and features more in the way of strings, orchestral brass, vintage keyboards… and anything else from classic pop arrangements that’s taken his fancy, to be honest. Last June Cinerama performed live for the first time in what you might call 'all its glory’... with a string quartet, trumpeter, flautist and assorted other guest contributors.

This spectacular event, which was held at London's 'O2 Academy Islington’, was something of a one-off, so David decided to film it and record it for posterity. ‘Live 2015’ is the result of his endeavours. From the first twang of guitar to the last twinkle of piano keys, this recording sparkles; a total departure from The Wedding Present, as David intended it to be, of course. Cinerama bring to life favourites selected from each of their four studio albums.

With its "musical set pieces and vocal nuances fine enough to rival Bacharach and David", Cinerama’s recent studio album ‘Valentina' was described as "a truly sparkling and uplifting concerto for the modern age" by Vive Le Rock Magazine.
