|The Wedding Present chronology|
|Singles from Take Fountain|
David Gedge originally recorded Take Fountain as the fourth Cinerama album, but after the break-up of his relationship with fellow Cinerama founder Sally Murrell, Gedge decided that this darker record should be released under his Wedding Present name. Take Fountain is the band's first album release since 1996's Saturnalia, and returns to the noisy, jangly, intelligent indie sound of old.
In Los Angeles, Fountain Avenue is a minor east-west street, between and parallel to Sunset Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard, two very congested arteries. Therefore, when Johnny Carson asked Bette Davis for advice on "the best way an aspiring starlet could get into Hollywood," Ms. Davis replied without hesitation, "Take Fountain!"
