Personalities | Suede | Nineties | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1989–2003, 2010–present)

With lead singer Brett Anderson stating ‘I’m a bisexual who has never had a homosexual experience’, Suede were one of the most exciting bands to emerge in the UK for years. After a startling eponymous debut (1993) and overblown – but masterful – follow-up Dead Man Star (1994) guitarist Bernard Butler departed. After recruiting another guitarist and keyboard player Coming Up (1996) and Head Music (1999) kept the faithful happy without ever fully delivering upon initial promise. Butler and Anderson reunited as The Tears in 2005.
