'LIVE 1990' collects the seventh and eighth of The Wedding Present's infamous 'live tapes'; cassettes that the band sold at shows and through their fanzine in the late 1980s. The recordings were unavailable anywhere else. Fans eagerly collected them and they became very rare.
This is the fourth in the series of these much-demanded, re-mastered recordings. 'Live 1990' is especially interesting because it includes a recording of The Wedding Present's first ever concert in North America. The live set at this time drew heavily from the band's recently released major label debut album, 'Bizarro' but there are also early versions of tracks that were to end up on Bizarro's critically acclaimed successor, 'Seamonsters.'
