In 2017, The Wedding Present released an EP entitled Home Internationals. The tracks on it are all instrumentals and are titled:

‘Northern Ireland’

The EP was released on the new label, El Segell del Primavera and is available through the Scopitones website.

There was a release of a re-recorded version of George Best by Steve Albini for it’s 30th anniversary.

And there was a second volume of radio sessions from the Marc Riley show on Hatch Records.


In October 2018, two new songs were unveiled on BBC 6 Music, they were ‘Panama’ and ‘Jump In, The Water’s Fine’.

‘Bond Girls’ (Cinerama – unreleased)

There are also several songs written as either The Lost Pandas or in the early days of The Wedding Present but never officially released. These include:

‘I Told You I Care’
‘Lay Off’**
‘Nervous Man In A Four Dollar Room’*
‘Story Of My Life’
‘Twenty Two’ (riff later used on ‘I’m Not Always So Stupid)
‘Will You Be Up There?’*
‘You Can’t Make It On Your Own’

*These two songs were on a demo cassette (Recorded at The Billiard Room, Leeds in 1984) along with ‘(The Moment Before) Everything’s Spoiled Again’ and a cover of ‘White Christmas’.
