A musical band, Wedlock formed circa 2004 in Richmond, VA, formed of Paul Allgood (vox, sampling) and Jeff Hathaway (programming, keyboards) for its original members. They did a couple Eps together until Jeff formed his own production company and Paul kept going with Wedlock in live form. Exogamy was a 2008 debut that eventually reached #40 on OutVoice's LGBT chart, and also contained their most successful single to date "Black Sundress"(#9 Amazon mp3). Their follow up, Continuity, was voted runner-up in the Indie Band of the Year Contest hosted by Music Emissions[[note]]A Canadian E-Zine[[/note]].

Allgood has been the sole remaining original member, and continues to record and perform as Wedlock with many others, much like Pere Ubu but not nearly as famous.

!!Wedlock has examples of the following tropes:
* RevolvingDoorBand: Apart from Paul Allgood, the band has featured a different line up on each of its releases. For a band called Wedlock, there's a lot of musical "divorce" going around--over ten member changes over its history.
* DreadlockRasta: Though not a Rastatafarian, Paul Allgood wears his hair in this style.
* ProtestSong: The song "Allegiance?" WTF?! is a track with an anti Bush, anti-oligarchy, and anti-war sentiment, complete with vox sample.
* CultOfPersonality: Their song "Reverend Charisma" is about the cult leader Jim Jones.
* IdiosyncraticAlbumTheming: "Matrimony," "Exogamy," and "Continuity" all end in "y", as Allgood purposely tries to use one-word titles either pertaining to marriage or the "y" ness of something.
