As a weekly devourer of NME I remember Suede from the start. The paper adored them - I think they called them the best band in the world when the first album came out. Justine Frishchman from Elastica was in the band for a while I believe.
I remember Morrissey covering one of their tracks or playing it live or something. There was an interview with Anderson and Bowie together and rumours of heroin addiction surfaced. The fallout with Bernard Butler seemed to go on for ages and got pretty nasty.
I thought the first album was great, still do. Went out with a girl for a few years who adored Suede. We saw them at York Barbican in the mid 90d and I think I also saw them at Glastonbury one year. They got lumped in with Britpop whatever that was. I don’t think that even existed. Just a music press invention to increase sales.
I haven’t listened to this for a long time but I’ll bang it on soon and slip my skinny fit shirt on.
