Suede: a dose of notalgia from new wave legends
After meeting at University College London in the late 1980s, Brett Anderson and Justine Frischmann started dating, and soon decided to form a band together, recruiting third member Mat Osman to complete the lineup. The trio fashioned a distinct style blending post punk with glam rock, taking inspiration from the dazzling discographies of The Smiths and David Bowie. Relentless gigging around Camden secured them a devoted local fan base and they were soon snapped up by record label RML.
In 1991, Justine left the band after becoming romantically involved with Doman Albarn from Blur. With a new sense of purpose, Brett Anderson began writing the songs that would send the band's profile through the stratosphere. Providing a sharp contrast to the dying Madchester scene and American grunge music, Suede were hailed by the NME as the best new band in Britain, with their breakthrough single "Metal Mickey" soaring into the UK Top 20.
Between 1992 and 1994, the group spawned a series of decade-defining hits including "Animal Nitrate", with BBC music critic Chris Jones describing it as 'a thrill-seeking slice of cynicism that perfectly summed up what it was like to be young and chemically imbalanced in the nation's capital at the time'. Their self-titled debut album entered the UK charts at number one, by which time they had already become one of the most talked about bands in Britain.
Riding the wave of success, Dog Man Star followed in 1994 and Coming Up in 1996, with both records pushing the boundaries of a genre that the group had defined. After the release of A New Morning in 2003, Suede decided to disband until they felt it was right to make another album. Fans' wishes were granted in 2013 when the group returned with critically acclaimed new album Bloodsports. Back at their best, the band have got fans clamoring to hear their much-anticipated eighth studio album The Blue Hour (released September 2018).
