Cinerama (band)

Cinerama (band)

Cinerama were a UK indie pop band, headed up by David Gedge the frontman for The Wedding Present. Originally formed in 1998 while on a break from The Wedding Present, Cinerama started as a duo of David Gedge and his then-girlfriend Sally Murrell. The initial releases were a dramatic break from previous Gedge records as they featured soundtrack-like arrangements and string and woodwind accompaniment. Live performances included a lot of musicians to play these orchestral/pop songs. Over the years though the sound changed back to more of a rock sound especially once some of The Wedding Present songs were incorporated into the live set. Around 2003 Sally Murrell and Gedge split and she then left the band. Eventually during the recording of what became Take Fountain, David Gedge decided that the sound had changed so much that it would be better released under The Wedding Present name and so Cinerama were finished although the same musicians carried on.
