Suede are an English alternative rock band formed in London in 1989 and currently consists of Brett Anderson (vocals), Richard Oakes (guitar), Mat Osman (bass), Simon Gilbert (drums) and Neil Codling (keyboards, rhythm guitar). Having split up in 2003, the Coming Up and Head Music line up of the band reformed in 2010, the band’s original guitarist Bernard Butler had left the band in 1994. In 1992, Suede were described as “The Best New Band in Britain” and attracted much attention from the British music press. The following year their debut album Suede, went to the top of the charts by becoming the fastest selling debut album in almost ten years and also won the Mercury Music Prize. During the recording sessions for Dog Man Star, Butler departed the band, the album was completed without him and the band toured the album with new recruit Richard Oakes. In 1996, following the recruitment of keyboard player Neil Codling along with Oakes, Suede went on to greater commercial success with Coming Up. The album reached No 1 in the UK, producing five top ten singles and becoming Suede’s biggest selling album worldwide. Despite problems within the band, Suede’s fourth album Head Music (1999) was a British chart topper, it was promoted heavily with the band receiving considerable press coverage on its release. Codling left the band in 2001 and was replaced by Alex Lee. The band’s fifth album, A New Morning, was released in 2002 however the group disbanded the following year. After much speculation Suede reformed in 2010 for a series of concerts. Three years on from their reunion gigs, Suede released their sixth album, Bloodsports. It was well received by critics and returned the band to the top ten in the UK. Night Thoughts (2016) was an even greater critical and commercial success than its predecessor.
