Anecdotes from Behind the Retail Frontline

At one time or other, but never together, most of Suede have been around. Brett in his Fonz jacket looking at the classics, that tall bass player looking at music books and the keyboard player who started off so young with armfuls of romantic poetry and gothic novels but decayed right in front of us until his skin turned the colour of dust.

Behind the counterculture is a recurring series of celebrity encounters or near encounters in or close to a West London used book and record store.
