Suede Unveil Two-Disc Greatest Hits
It may well be that recently reconstituted Suede will record new material (they remain tight-lipped on the subject) but if they do, it won't be before they've squeezed a little more commercial life out of their decade-plus back catalogue. On Nov. 1, the NME reports, the Britpop veterans will release 'The Best of Suede,' a two-disc collection that compiles singles, B-sides and album tracks.
Disc one of the set comprises singles ranging from 1992 debut 7-inch 'The Drowners' to 2002 effort 'Obsessions,' a cut from the band's final album 'A New Morning.' The 18 tracks cover much the same ground as 2003 one-disc retrospective 'Singles.' Disc two, meanwhile, includes B-sides like 'Killing of a Flashboy' (the reverse of 1994's 'We Are the Pigs') along with album tracks such as 'Pantomime Horse' and 'Sleeping Pills' from the band's self-titled 1993 LP.
Suede -- singer Brett Anderson, guitarist Richard Oakes, keyboard player Neil Codling, bassist Mat Osman and drummer Simon Gosling -- returned to live duty in 2010 after a five-year hiatus. In an 11-year recorded career prior to their initial split, the London glam rockers released five albums -- 'Suede,' 'Dog Man Star,' 'Coming Up,' 'Head Music' and 'A New Morning' -- the first two of which featured founding guitarist Bernard Butler, who quit the group in 1994.
