SUEDE ON FILM

UK Music Editor Jason meets Suede at 25 and likes what he hears so much that he gathers his thoughts together on video.
story by Jason Lewis
UK Music Editor

Its now over a quarter of a century since Suede were being heralded as the new  saviours of British music.  Their debut single, The Drowners, released in May 1992, was probably the finest opening statement from a British band since The Smiths released Hand in Glove a decade before.  A glorious  mix of Simon Gilberts pounding tribal drums, Bernard Butler's chugging, sleazy guitars and the Brett Anderson's yowling vocals, a glorious outsider. What followed were two equally delirious singles (Metal Mickey and the top ten Animal Nitrate) and the Mercury Prize winning debut album 'Suede'. 

To mark the 25th anniversary of the debut album, an exhaustive box set (4 CDs and a DVD), brings together all the b-sides, demos, sessions and a live concert together with the original album. Below, our music editor assesses its impact and relevance.
