The definitive story of The Wedding Present's much heralded 1987 debut LP ‘George Best’.
Something Left Behind explores music, obsession, love, loss and fading youth over the 30 year lifespan of a record that has been labelled the “greatest break-up album of all time.” Featuring interviews with all four original band members, key players in the record’s history plus the major influence behind its very existence, the film also follows the album’s story through the eyes of the fans who have carried it with them for a lifetime. The story concludes with the band’s homecoming show in Leeds where the city witnessed a blistering and emotional final-ever performance of the album and the closing of a hugely significant and personal chapter for David Gedge and The Wedding Present.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Andrew Jezard and David Gedge, lead singer of The Wedding Present, in advance of their gig at the Empire Music Hall in Belfast.
