David Gedge says: "During the summer of 2006 we were invited to record a session for 'One Music With Huw Stephens' - we didn't really have any new songs of our own and so I decided that we could pursue that other favourite pastime of The Wedding Present...

the recording of cover versions!. So I chose four classic pop songs for us to look at. They weren't particularly 'favourites' - although I have always loved 'Step Inside Love' and 'Lovin' You' - they were just songs that I thought the band could successfully 're-imagine'.

I have never seen the point of recording faithful copies; I have always felt that any Wedding Present version has to bear the stamp of The Wedding Present.

And I think we accomplished that particularly well on this session.
