Started out as a group of friends getting together for a jam. By 2005 we had a line up ready to write and record our own material . Initially we wrote more than 20 songs which we whittled down to 11 for our live set and album.

Member of the Wedding are a mixed sex beat combo from Glasgow. There are three of them - Rory who sings and strums the guitar, Louisa who plays bass and keyboards and Stephen who thumps the tubs and keeps the other two in time. Outside of the band, Rory relaxes by pretending he's agrophobic, Louisa competes in international knitting tournaments and Stephen cultivates a secret moustache, much like Ringo Starr's. They all admire Scott Walker, Orange Juice, The Monks and The Go-Betweens. They watch Harold & Maude whenever they can.
