Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The definitive, authorized story of Suede, written by an insider with the cooperation of all members, now revised and updated

From the early beginnings and instant tag of the "new saviors of rock 'n' roll," to lead singer Brett Anderson's relationship with Justine Frischmann who—to the delight of the press—transferred her affections to rival band Blur's Damon Albarn, this authorized band biography covers Suede's entire career. It discusses the arrival of guitar supremo Bernard Butler and the ensuing chart-topping singles, albums, and sell-out tours; Bernard's subsequent departure at the height of their fame and narcotic excesses; and tells their story right up to the present day. The author has drawn on dozens of new sources for this revised edition to add fresh insight and examine their musical legacy. The many sources interviewed include Justine Frischmann and the band's ex-manager Ricky Gervais.

About the Author

David Barnett is a music writer who created the Suede fanzine Suave & Elegant. The band liked it so much they asked him to work for them and he has spent 10 years following their every move.
