The Wedding Present formed 25 years ago in the north of England, and it's safe to say that the band was more influenced by The Buzzcocks and The Fall than by The Rolling Stones. Still, it sounds pretty spectacular when The Wedding Present--in the middle of a tour celebrating the 21st anniversary of its excellent album Bizarro--brings the noise to The Rolling Stones' 1966 classic "19th Nervous Breakdown." The Wedding Present is the only band (so far--is that a hint?) to have a song on the Undercover list and to perform a cover for us: "My Favourite Dress" will rear its head later this summer.
