2005 release. PAL format. "I'm From Further North Than You" is classic Wedding Present, from its over-wordy title with a hint of a North-South divide to the sad story of the end of a relationship between unhappy people. More surprising though -- to the dissenters at least -- is that it's better than anything The Wedding Present ever released in their '90s incarnation. This is because David Gedge brought his experiences writing, recording, and singing beautiful, string-laden, lush pop music with his Cinerama project to bear on the mid-2000s Wedding Present recordings, proving himself, if there was still any doubt, to be one of the best songwriters in Britain. "I'm From Further North Than You: is perfect guitar pop with a twist, grown up without ever straying toward the embarrassing territory of maturity. The DVD includes a charming video for "I'm From Further North Than You" featuring Gedge and a mystery girl pacing the streets of Edinburgh and reciting lyrics from past Gedge songs into their cell phones, as well as an eerie video for the rougher, edgier single "Interstate 5." "Perfect Blue (Three Minute Film)" was shot in Amsterdam at a semi-acoustic performance by David Gedge and (Wedding Present guitarist) Simon Cleave and also includes footage shot by Gedge himself. The videos on the DVD single were all made by Tim Middlewick, who directed Get Up And Go, the acclaimed 2004 Cinerama DVD.
