Suede - Live at Newcastle Riverside 1992
For about two and a half albums (plus a double album worth of bsides), Suede were one of the most interesting and exciting rock bands in Britain. Not only did they release a string of too-catchy-for-words singles, but in the overblown yet tremendous Dog Man Star they release one of the defining albums of the Britpop era. Soon afterwards of course they descended into a repetitive and cliched joke of a band, both lyrically and musically, and sadly there was still nothing exciting when Bernard Butler and Brett Anderson reunited for The Tears project. Brett Anderson's recent album is even worse, and it's a real shame that the bands early reputation is being stained further with every Anderson-related release!
To tip the balance back the other way slightly I thought i'd post part of a live show from one of their early shows. These files are dated as being recorded on the 28th May 1992 at Newcastle Riverside. Enjoy.
