EDITORS’ NOTES

Far from stalling Suede, the departure of guitarist Bernard Butler seems to loosen them up. With snake hips, Coming Up wriggles free of Dog Man Star’s claustrophobia and Brett Anderson's melodramas ring with more defiance than despair. New boy Richard Oakes is a faithful substitute for Butler’s spidery effervescence on cocksure stomps “Trash” and “Beautiful Ones”, and “Saturday Night” confirms that they can still shape melancholy and nihilism into a gorgeous ballad.
