I think the world is okay with this.

Suede are one of the greatest bands ever to walk the Earth.

Anyone care to disagree? Anyone? Butler?

If you can get past the hyper-Bowie-esque vocals of Bret Anderson, they are pretty good. They never made a dent in the states.

A lot of people really like Butler's guitar work, and rightly so, but my favorite album of theirs is Coming Up, which is their first without him I think.

Fun fact: Ricky Gervais was once their manager.

Suede seemed to me the most British of Britpop bands so you won't find as much fans of them in the States as the other big ones (Pulp, Blur, Rutles Oasis).

Shame.

Yet still forced to alter their name for American releases.  Nirvana, however, took the name of a working British band and was not.

Being fair, Geffen paid the original Nirvana big bucks in order to use the name in the UK.

While I prefer Blur and Pulp, Suede is a pretty great band. Their albums are consistently good to great, and they've continued putting out good music for nigh on 30 years, which is impressive.

Wrong band - Butler is in the Psychedelic Furs.

"The recording sessions for their second album, Dog Man Star, were fraught with difficulty and ended with original guitarist Bernard Butler departing after confrontations with the other members."

Wrong band - I think you'll find Butler was in The Waitresses.

I've got tickets to the Manchester and London shows and was gutted but not surprised when the original dates were postponed. I'm hoping traveling to the UK in November will be safe. One of my all-time favorite bands.

Saw Suede in '96 in NYC for the Coming Up tour and it's one of the greatest shows I've ever seen. It was also the last time they toured the States after getting their gear stolen in Boston.
