David Gedge Bio

David Gedge is an English musician and songwriter and co-founder of The Wedding Present.

Publishers have been asking David to write his autobiography for years, and he has always secretly wanted to be the star of his own graphic novel, so his appearance at Louder Than Words Festival to launch Go Out And Get ‘Em, Boy is a timely arrangement!

David writes the Tales From The Wedding Present narrative together with long-time musical associate Terry de Castro, and then the stories are illustrated by virtuoso artist Lee Thacker. The three of them have been working steadily, with editing help from Jessica McMillan, relating the life and adventures of David Lewis Gedge, for almost ten years
