Book Summary

The definitive story of Suede. From the early beginnings and instant tag of the 'new saviours of rock n' roll', through lead singer Brett Anderson's relationship with Justine Frischmann who - to the delight of the national press - transferred her affections to rival band Blur's Damon Albarn to the arrival of guitar supremo Bernard Butler and the ensuing chart-topping singles, albums and sell-out tours. From Bernard's subsequent departure at the height of their fame and narcotic excesses right up to the present day, getting back together in 2010 for a series of concerts then Bloodsports, the new album, Suede: The Biography covers the band's entire career.
