Suede arrived in 1992 when US Grunge bands dominated the airwaves. The band’s unmistakably British style quickly found new fans and with a little help from the NME, Suede were set for stardom.
Their self-titled debut “Suede” was winning blend of classic British songwriting in the vein of The Smiths with influences of Marc Bolan/T Rex and Ziggy-era Bowie. The ambitious follow-up, “Dog Man Star” failed to match sales of the debut but has since been widely regarded as a pop masterpiece.
Differences between the band and guitarist and founding member, Bernard Butler led to an acrimonious split. Many believed Butler’s departure would signal the end for Suede, but like Phoenix, Suede re-emerged with new members. Then 16-years old guitar prodigy, Richard Oakes and multi-instrumentalist, Neil Codling helped Suede achieve their biggest hit to date. “Coming Up” was released in 1996 and featured the massive Britpop anthems “Trash,” “Beautiful Ones,” “Filmstar” and “Saturday Night.”
Watching Suede perform these influential albums in their entirety is a treat no fan can afford to miss. A rare treat, better secure your Suede tickets now for any or all of the Brixton Academy concerts.
