Topic: Bernard Butler
He has been a busy boy the last few months. Best part of three albums in the last few months.
His guitar parts on Ben Watts solo albums have been class.
He wrote and produced the singer from 4non blondes . Kate something called British Road Movies, which is quite a Suede themed record, and some of it is similar.
He has also produced and played on Mark Eitzel's new one, which I have only just got.
I have always followed old Bernard's stuff as he is a great guitarist, but he was absolute shite when he went solo. An horrible weedy voice, worse than John Squire!
I still don't think he has got near his Suede stuff (even with David McCalmont), and I actually think Richard Oakes suits them better, he plays with more aggression, especially live.
If you like Weller I really recommend the Ben Watt stuff.
