Top 15 Suede Tunes

Older and less heroin addled Brett Anderson is fit.

Oh yes, (just) another blog post, (just) another Britpop band. And today, we’re talking about Suede. So we had the Oasis vs Blur thing. We had Pulp challenging both of those bands for the Britpop crown and then we had Suede. Suede who sometimes (wrongly) get forgotten about or dismissed when discussing the best bands from that era. Suede who’s loss of their key songwriter after (actually during) the recording of their “difficult second album” spelled the demise of the band, but leader vocalist (and their other key songwriter), Brett Anderson was having none of it. 30 years after forming (happy anniversary guys) they are still churning out the tunes. In fact, their 8th studio album was released last year and I named it as one of my favourite albums of the year (right HERE in fact). Also, slight side note, but am I the only one that remembers the original rivalry was in fact between Suede vs Blur and not with Oasis? Does this make Blur the real troublemakers?

Favourite Suede album: Suede (1993, no.1)

  9. Any excuse to ogle the beautiful man that is Brett Anderson 😍🤤

    Drowners and Wild Ones are my top two but it’s a tough pick… I’m a fan of new Brett but the new concept albums leave me a bit cold (apart from Tightrope from Night Thoughts 😍)

      I never fancied him back in the 90s, but now….yes please thank you, that’ll do nicely. Oh I love Drowners and Wild Ones, so bloody much. Wild Ones is so moving. Yeah the later albums haven’t been as strong as the earlier stuff, though I loved Blue Hour from last year.

    Yeah, had to be Animal Nitrate, it’s in a league of its own.

    I remember working a Suede gig at Uni, and it was fekkin scary AF. The crowd ripped the clothes off Brett and would have torn him apart too given a chance. It was a bit of a Yikes! Moment.

        Yeah. I remember thinking ‘I don’t like the way this is going!’ But it all ended ok, and it was a great gig
