There are four great covers bands - Motorhead, the Manics, Placebo and the Wedding Present. This is the first covers mix I've done in a long time without the Wedding Present's version of '(Come Up And See Me) Make Me Smile'. But to avoid omitting Mrs Gedge's little boy all together, the 'secret' 'hidden' track on this one is the Weddoes' take on the Close Lobsters' 'Let's Make Some Plans'.

Nice collection of covers. I agree, the Wedding Present are a great covers band. I can think of at least 18 songs they've covered! Also good to see the Shoppies and Heavenly represented as well. Good show!

Aeons ago, I actually made a mix of Wedding Present covers. It has 20 songs, and left some out!
